Hilton Lawyers Adelaide
No one wants to think about death, especially at a time when they are bringing two or more babies into this world. However, making sure you have a will is one of the most important things you can do for your children.
Having two or more babies at the same time means that life gets thrown into total chaos and a lot of admin tasks get overlooked. Like making sure your will is current. It is important to review your will regularly and ensure it is up to date.
Hilton Lawyers are here to make this process for you as easy as possible.
What is a will?
A will is a legal document that that specifies what happens to both your assets and your children when you die. A will must be a legal written document and needs to be witnessed by two independent witnesses. Your will contains many important instructions relating to your affairs once you pass away.
The death of a loved one can have a devastating impact on your family. A properly drafted will can help reduce the stress in a very stressful situation. A will ensures peace of mind for both you and your family.
Why should you make a will when you have children?
Making a will is your opportunity to document a plan to protect your children and any property you may leave to them should you die. It gives you a chance to voice your wishes and provide reasoning as to who you would like to raise your children. This is particularly important if there are several invested parties who may have differing opinions on who should raise your children.
Your will can also appoint a person to be the financial guardian of your children’s finances.
Hilton Lawyers can draft your will as a ‘smarter will’ in order to establish testamentary trusts, which, when your will comes into effect, may save your loved ones tens of thousands of dollars in taxes resulting for their inheritance.
Your children are one of the most, if not the most, important thing in your life. A will provides you with security knowing that your wishes for your children will be adhered to when your will comes into effect.
