A will is a necessity on divorce, separation or family break up.
Although the breakup of any marriage, civil partnership or family is an extremely stressful time it is also an opportunity to focus on getting your financial affairs in order.
Divorce Wills – Why they are important
Whilst you remain married or in a civil partnership in England and Wales in the event that you die, your spouse or civil partner will be entitled (by law) to inherit either the whole of your estate or most of it.
This presents a risk in that if you die before a Decree Absolute or civil partnership dissolution order then any existing will in favour of your spouse or civil partner will remain valid or alternatively if you die without a will, then under the rules of intestacy, your spouse or civil partner will continue to be the main beneficiary of your estate.
The benefit of our divorce wills service means that irrespective of when the final Decree Absolute or civil partnership dissolution order comes through, you will have no provision for your loved ones and ensured that your spouse or civil partner do not inherit.
Further, should you change your mind within 12 months of making your will then we will amend your will for you free of charge.
We have vast experience in drafting wills and we are therefore able to guide you through the process which is both quick and affordable.
We will also provide advice and guidance if needed and we will also as part of our service attend upon you and provide witnesses in order to execute your will to make it valid and binding. We will also store your original will free of charge.
If you also decide that it is prudent at this time in your life to have a lasting power of attorney with respect of your property and finances or your health and welfare then again we can provide you a fixed price for this service.
