IMPORTANCE OF MAKING A WILL
Due to certain times or changes in your life or circumstances, you may be required to make or amend your Will. For example, marriage, separation, divorce, having a child, a serious medical diagnosis, or have another major life change, these will all require us to think about having a will in place or updating a current will.
Making a Will ensures that you provide a legal document that will appoint a guardian for your children, protect a disabled loved one, and make certain that the people in your life receive the inheritance you intend for them.
At Mould Haruna, we have come across cases where people have avoiding making a Will and that has only resulted in difficulty because you risk leaving your loved ones without clear instructions. A will eases the difficulty on the family by providing clear direction about your wishes for everything from your funeral wishes to how, and to whom, your possessions will be distributed.
STRESS OF DEALING WITH THE ASSETS OF A LOVED ONE – PROBATE
Mould Haruna can assist with the probate process ranging from initial guidance on procedure, through to dealing with the entire estate administration process where the assets and liabilities are complex, if inheritance tax may be payable, and dealing with beneficiaries or trusts involved.
The death of a loved one is always a difficult time. The process of sorting out a loved one’s finances adds a level of emotional stress to an already difficult situation and we at Mould Haruna are here to assist in easing that stress and difficult.
