Wills, Trusts and Probates
Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to safeguard the future of your family and your business.
Did you know……
- If you marry after completing your Will, the marriage revokes your Will.
- If you are married and you have not made a Will, your spouse will not necessarily inherit the whole of your estate as the rules of intestacy would apply.
- If you are not married and you do not have a Will, your partner will not receive anything under the intestacy rules.
- Your estate will pass to the Crown if you have no relatives and die without making a Will.
At Bright Solicitors we pride ourselves on making sure that you get the very best advice. We provide tailored advice taking into account your personal circumstances and requirements. For example, in relation to:
- Appointment of guardians for your children.
