Wills for new parents – protect your most valuable asset says Thackray Williams
Sevenoaks solicitors Thackray Williams explains why it is important to make a Will. And to make it easier they are offering to make a free home visit
IF you are expecting, or have just welcomed your brand-new bundle of joy into the world, then it is understandable if you feel you have better things to think about than making your Will.
Let’s be honest, it is a major achievement to get dressed in the morning, let alone to leave the house and be on time for an appointment at a lawyer’s office. But think about this. What would happen if you don’t make a Will and you and/or your partner die?
We believe that everyone should make a Will. But the Will isn’t for our benefit. It isn’t even really for your benefit. Your Will is for your child.
Making a Will gives you complete peace of mind and ensures that your child is in the best possible position if the worst happens to you.
Your Will allows you to appoint guardians of your child if they are under 18 when you pass away. It is also an opportunity to protect your child’s inheritance.
Many people say that if they die first they would like to provide for their partner/spouse, but be able to protect assets for the children if the spouse ever remarried and started a new family. You can achieve this in your Will.
