Wills & Powers of Attorney Humevale
Wills are an essential aspect of managing your personal and business assets, necessitating thorough planning and consideration. With situations involving blended families, disabled children, and changes in life, our team is ready to provide advice and help in creating your Will, deciding who will oversee your Estate (Executor) and who will benefit from your assets (Beneficiaries).
Drafting a Will is crucial in order to confirm that all your loved ones are addressed, and all your assets are dispersed in line with your intentions after your passing.
While making a Will can be intimidating, our team can guide you through every step to reduce the risk of someone challenging your Will. A Will is normally challenged if a family member was left out of the Will or were not left enough. Other types of claims can also arise from lack of capacity, undue influence, and breach of trust.
