wills from the comfort of your own home, office or via phone.

No one likes to think about what may happen when they are no longer here, but unfortunately, it is a fact of life and having a Last Will & Testament (Will) helps ensure that you decide what happens to not only your assets but also your dependents when you are gone. Let us help you with making a will in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and the surrounding areas of Lincolnshire.

There is a general misconception that wills are only essential for the elderly. But if you have any dependants, a child or even pets, a will is essential to ensure they receive the right care and access to your assets required to continue their lives. As a will is a legally binding document, it is essential to have it professionally produced by a qualified will writer. A professionally written will means your wishes cannot be disputed nor can it be questioned in the court of law.

We recommend you, or a family member, no matter what age, don’t wait until it is too late to get everything in order. If the unthinkable does happen, having a Will in place avoids unnecessary costs, delays and stress for everyone involved.

  • Name those people you trust to distribute your assets and carry out your wishes (your executors)

  • Avoids assets moving away from the family, e.g. in the case of divorce or remarriage of a beneficiary

my common law spouse will inherit my assets

The idea of a ‘common law marriage’, if a couple has lived together for a number of years, is not legally enforceable and only by a Last Will & Testament, can you ensure your partner inherits as you wish. So without a Will in place, you partner could be left with nothing should the worst happen.

I am too young for a Will

I can draft my own Will

While there are do-it-yourself will kits available, especially online, which promise a cheap price, it is always advised to use a professional.  A Will is a legal document, and like any legal document, the power of it is all down to how robustly it has been drafted. If errors are made it could be invalid, be open to challenge or cause costly delays in probate.
