Wills & Probate
Why Do You Need a Will?
A will is essentially a document that gives instructions about how your estate should be divided upon your death. When individuals or couples do not have a will, the estate is divided in accordance with the provisions of the Succession Act.
Among the many advantages of having a will are:
- You will dictate what happens to your property
- You can plan your estate matters in a way that is advantageous for reducing the tax burden of your heirs
- You can appoint the executors to your will
Have you recently married? A will is automatically revoked by marriage unless it was made in contemplation of the marriage. If you are about to be married or have recently been married we can advise you on your options and assist you in creating or updating your will.
