What is a will?

A will is a legal document outlining your wishes in the event of your death.  This could include who cares for your children, to what happens to your property and how your finances are managed.  Whether you are married, in a relationship or single, it’s important to consider making a will.

I'm married, will everything just go to my partner?

If you die without making a will, your partner will not automatically receive everything.  This is called dying intestate and there are rules which take into account the value of your estate and your children.

I'm not married, will my partner inherit my estate?

Unmarried couples have no legal rights to each other’s estates, so it’s really important to have a will in place, to make sure that your partner gets what you would want them to in the event of your death.

What decisions will I make in my will?

You can specify just about anything in a will.  Common decisions include:

Guardians – people who you trust to care for your children until they reach 18

Funeral – you can specify what you would like to happen

Executors – who you trust to carry out your wishes

Gifts – you can choose who you’d like to receive specific items or amounts of money

Pets – you may want to specify who should look after your pet

Vulnerable people – you could make decisions to protect any vulnerable loved ones

Are there different types of wills?

There are a number of different types of wills, designed to meet different people’s situations:

Single Will – for individuals or partners with different wishes 

Mirror Will – where you and your partner have almost identical wishes
