Using a stationery form to write your Will may seem like an inexpensive option. Our team regularly review handwritten Wills that contain minor (and major) errors that mean they are not valid or – worse still – don’t have the effect that the Will maker intended. Literally not worth the paper they’re written on.
Many people don’t make a Will because they don’t want to consider the awful possibility of not being there for their children. As with all things in life, failing to plan doesn’t stop bad things from happening. Appointing a guardian will avoid making a distressing situation, however unlikely, less painful for your children.
