I look forward to the family get away every year. Whether it be camping on Exmoor or sunning ourselves abroad, this precious time spent with family is much needed. However, I would never travel without insurance. The thought of being stuck somewhere unable to get home or for something to happen and disrupt our plans, knowing that the insurance is in place gives security and peace of mind. So why then would we travel without making a Will?
A professionally drafted Will ensures that your wishes for the guardianship of your children are taken into consideration, whilst making a Will is by no means exciting, the peace of mind it can provide you with regarding your wishes being listened, to cannot be quantified in terms of monetary value.
A Will prevents a lot of stress and heartache for the people left behind. Making the decisions regarding the distribution of your estate, who you trust to put your wishes into practice and if you have young children, who you would want to act as their guardians, ensuring as little disruption as possible during a difficult time.
Dying without a Will means that your estate will be split between your family following the rules of intestacy. This could mean your children inheriting a large sum of money when they are only 18 years old!
