Will FormA legal Will is an important legal document with formal instructions stating how your assets and possessions are to be distributed when you die. If you pass away without a will, you will have died “intestate” and your assets may be distributed according to your state or territories’ intestate laws. This can result in disagreement and costly legal disputes between your next-of-kin.
Why should your solicitor witness your will?A DIY Will is great way to take your own steps to ensure your estate is protected and left to the right people. However, if you’ve filled your Will form incorrectly, even a minor mistake can cause a costly delay to the administration and execution of your Will. Worse still, your will may even be invalid or partially intestate, resulting in your assets getting distributed to unintended parties. By taking instructions directly from you, a solicitor can help prepare and witness your will. This ensures your last wishes are accurately documented on a valid, legally binding document that can be upheld in court and is less open to challenge from dissatisfied beneficiaries.
