Making your Will.
Making your Will gives you control over what happens to your estate after your death. You are able to:
- choose your executors, who are the people responsible for administering your wishes
- appoint your guardians for any children under 18 and make financial provision for them
- decide who will benefit from your estate
- provide for your pets
- leave a gift to charity
- specify your funeral wishes.
In short, you can make sure that everything happens according to your wishes after you are gone.
What happens if I don’t make a Will?
If you have no Will in place when you die, your estate will be declared intestate and the government will decide how your assets will be distributed. This will not take into account any personal circumstances and may even result in people benefitting from your estate who you would not have wished too.
The law provides some protection for spouses, civil partners and children but there is absolutely no protection for unmarried partners – even if you think you have a ‘common law marriage’.
Making a Will is not a complicated process and does not have to be expensive. By doing so now, you may save everybody a great deal of time, expense and distress after your death.
Is Your Will up to date?
You need to make sure your Will is always up to date, accounting for important life events such as the birth of children, marriages, divorces, receiving inheritance, or even simply changes in the law.
Again, by doing so now, you may save everyone a great deal of time, expense and distress after your death.

What our clients say.
‘We recently wrote our Wills and used Trusted Law, after they were recommended to us. Natalie was a pleasure to deal with and provided a thorough and efficient service. It was simple and straightforward to arrange everything we needed to, and we would highly recommend Trusted Law.
Peace of mind for you
“Many of our clients say that they have ‘peace of mind’ after their Will is finalised. If you have any questions about your Will, please get in touch, we would rather have an informal call with you then have you worrying”
