Like a lot of people for quite a while now I’ve been meaning to get around to accepting and facing my mortality and making a will. You may have assumptions about what will automatically happen to your estate when you die but these things are by no means guaranteed.
What would happen if your partner was killed in the same car crash that did for you? Yes, it’s a morbid thought, but this is an example of one of the many scenarios of why it’s important to have your wishes noted down in a legal document.
November just so happens to be Will Aid month. Lawyers across the country donate their time and expertise in exchange for you making a donation to the charities supported by the scheme. Getting a will drawn up while helping charity at the same time is a win for everyone in my opinion.
