The Importance of Having a Valid Will

Published On: October 15, 2021

Do you have a valid Will? Does your Will accurately reflect your wishes for the distribution of your Estate?

Every person over the age of 18 should have a Will whether your wealth is nominal or vast. Your circumstances may change unexpectedly either by winning the lottery or some other windfall. Or, your assets grow and your wealth creeps up. Too often, people die without a Will and their Estate is not distributed according to their wishes.

A simple Will is useful when assets are few and there are no complex family relationships. But when there are considerations to be made such as guardianship for children, trusts, dependents who may require protection, or beneficiaries who are married to gold diggers a lawyer will advise and guide you to ensure you have a Will in place that will distribute your assets as you wish. A lawyer will check the signing of the Will to ensure that it is correctly signed in all the appropriate places to reduce the risk of it’s invalidity.
