Lifes achievements: Big or small it’s good to leave something behind

September 12, 2020

Many people think that a Will is something they can put off until later in life when they have retired.

It’s not untrue that you can do this but what will happen to your estate if you have failed to write a Will?

Married Couples

Without a Will, if you have children, your spouse may not inherit all of your estate.

Unmarried Couples

Unless you have made your Will. Your partner will get nothing! Your entire estate would pass to your children, or if you had none, be shared between your brothers, sisters and parents.

Separated

If you die without making a Will, your spouse will be entitled to claim part or all of your estate.

Guardianship

If your children are orphaned, you don’t give the authority of Guardianship and the power to choose who shall look after them, including allocating them to foster parents. Children will often go into the care of the Social Services while it is being established who is best to look after them.
