But just as importantly, as will solicitors, we understand the emotional toll it takes to deal with the estate of a loved one. We work quickly to ensure that you receive your inheritance, so that your woes are not compounded by ongoing legalities and family tension.
What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that plans and sets out the distribution of a deceased individual’s estate. This is an area of law that can be complex and nuanced. Drafting a will requires a meticulous approach, and it is one we have perfected over decades of practice. An invalid Will can cause many issues later on; family tension, Supreme Court litigation, unnecessary stress, expense and so on. At Carney’s when we make a Will, we make it well.
Why create a Will?
- To clearly and specifically determine how your estate is to be distributed
- To appoint future guardians and trustees for the care of your children
- To simplify the process of those desired to inherit your assets
- To appoint an executor to manage your estate affairs
- To avoid requiring the acquisition of probate and other legal challenges
- To reduce taxation costs in relation to your estate.
Is making a Will difficult?
No. Let us show you how simple it can be.
What if I need to dispute a Will?
Sadly, there are instances when you feel as though provision has not been made for you in the division of an estate. This can often be a painful process to navigate by yourself, and conversations are often fraught with volatility and emotion.
