More than half of all adults in the UK have not made a Will. If you have children it is especially important to have a Will in place. Every parent wants their child to be safely looked after and protected. To think of not being here to look after your children is far from a pleasant thought. But it is better to be safe in the knowledge that if the worst happens you have done what you can to protect them and ensure they are looked after rather than leaving it to chance.

You can put your wishes in place for their future. This cannot be done without a Will.

The points to consider include:

  • Who would be their guardian?
  • What age would they inherit 18, 21, 25 or older ?
  • Who would you appoint as Trustees to look after their inheritance until they get to the specific age?
  • Could they have access to funds prior to the age i.e. for education or maintenance?
  • What if you have step children or children from a first and second marriage?
  • Would your partner / spouse want something different?
  • What if you own a property?
  • Where would your children live?

These are not questions to be left unanswered no matter how hard they are to think about. Once a Will is on place then you would not have to think about them.

It may seem a minefield at first but with the right advice it is likely to be easier than you think to cover these issues.
