Before getting a Will, it is worth considering if you need a Will. Despite what you may think, it isn’t only old people who should get a Will.
When considering if you should get a Will, there are a few things that you should take into consideration:
- If you don’t have a Will, you don’t get a say into how your assets are distributed;
- If you have assets in your sole name and want to chose what happens to them when you die, you should get a Will;
- If you have children, and want to choose how they are cared for after your death, you should get a Will;
- If you want to make things easier for your family and loved ones following your death, you should get a Will;
- If you don’t want legislation to decide how your assets are distributed, you should get a Will; and
- If you want to ensure that your money and assets don’t go to the government, you should get a Will.
You can only make a Will if you are over 18 years of age and have the mental capacity to do so. Even those with mild intellectual disabilities and early stages of dementia may be able to make a Will.
If you are over 18 years of age and have any assets at all, it would be in your best interest to get a Will.
