August 2019: Will & Probate Advice with Simpson Solicitors
Parents' will: How to protect your children
THE summer holidays are finally here, giving parents a chance to spend time some quality time with their children. It's not something mums and dads like to think about, but what if the worst happened, and you were not around to take care of them?
Shocking though it sounds, having no will can mean your children inherit nothing. But with a parents' will you can make sure your children are provided for in the way you would like should the very worst happen.
Samantha Goss at Simpson Solicitors says: “A parents' will can let you choose the guardian to raise your children. If you do not have this legal document drawn up, it will be left to the court to decide as your family and god-parents have no automatic rights. A parents' will can save any delay - and even time in foster care - at an already traumatic time.
“We realise that many people put off putting in place a will or parents' power of attorney. That is why we start with a completely free, no obligation, review meeting to let you find out more, without the worry of legal costs. If you then go ahead we offer fixed prices with a NO HIDDEN COSTS guarantee. We aim to make everyone feel welcome and cared for.”
For a little extra, couples can add a trust fund to protect their children’s inheritance in case one parent dies and the other goes on to meet another partner.
Parent powers of attorney are also important, offering key protection in case you become seriously ill or injured. They will ensure the right person is appointed to sign for you, speak up for you and make decisions for you, should you be unable. These are decisions that will impact on your children as well as you.
The truth is, that whilst you may feel too young and healthy to need a will and power of attorney, every adult should have them in place to ensure their wishes are followed.
