You may be thinking that you are too young for making a Will. But when you really think about it, you are at such an exciting stage of your life. You’ve recently been married, you’ve had your first child, you’ve purchased your first home or you’ve even just started your own business. All of these things, especially your loved ones, are the most important things you have in life. So you want to ensure that they are protected and looked after when you are no longer here to do it yourself. Making a Will is the easiest way to ensure that what you leave behind when you die is protected and distributed the way you want it to be.
You may even be thinking that you won’t be leaving much behind so it isn’t worth the hassle. Your loved ones will be ok to sort it out amongst themselves. This isn’t the case. If you simply tell someone your wishes, then these wishes do not legally have to be followed. Making a will is the only way to protect what you leave behind and have your wishes respected and followed.
Making a Will allows you to be in control of who you wish to be a guardian for your children. What could be more important than ensuring your children are left with the people you trust the most. Your Will also enables you to decide exactly how to divide your assets. It doesn’t matter how much, or how little, you have you still want it to go to your loved ones in the way that you wish.
In order to have your estate distributed you need to appoint an Executor. You need to think carefully about who you want to be responsible for carrying out your wishes once you die. You want to ensure that your wishes will be respected and your assets protected and distributed accordingly.
