Pencil Pad

Most people who come to us believe that their wills will be straightforward, yet more often than not, we pick up on issues which could lead to disagreement amongst those left behind or even potential claims against their estate.

The phrase "I haven't thought of that" is a familiar one to us when we are approached over what the client considers to be a simple will. These days, family structures can be quite complex with multiple marriages, stepchildren, half siblings etc. It is therefore important to get solid advice from experts who see the bigger picture because they have encountered the difficulties and disputes that can arise after the one person who was the central link of the various family members has passed away.

We will draft your will in such a way that the interests of all members of your family are protected, i.e. financial security is provided for your spouse, but assets are also safeguarded for your children, in particular those from a different relationship, thus helping to avoid family fallouts and potential legal actions after death.
