With a will you can change the legal order of inheritance and decide for yourself who should have a right to your estate when you die. Remember that heirs of the body always have a right to their statutory portion of the estate and that a husband/wife has a right to his/her marital property.
Through a will, a parent can decide that whatever his or her child inherits should be his or her separate property. That property will thus not be part of a settlement in an eventual divorce. It can be beneficial to arrange such provisions to avoid conflicts in the future. Partners who only have children from a previous relationship do not inherit from each other and must therefore prepare a will if they want to inherit from each other.
It is important that a will is formulated correctly. There are certain rules that need to be adhered to for the will to be valid and certain wordings for the will to have the effect you want. Get in touch with us to make sure that your will is correct and that the intent is clear.
