Will Writing & Estate Planning

Everyone needs a Will. With today’s complex family structures, the need for a correctly drafted Will has never been more important. You don't want to leave the Government to decide who inherits your estate, which is what would happen in accordance with the Laws of Intestacy that were drawn up in the 1920’s if you dont have a Will in place. A correctly designed Will ensures that whomever you wish to inherit your estate does so, and that this is carried out in the correct order and in the proportions that you wish.

Atherton York can help you to design a plan to leave gifts to your beneficiaries, including charities. Your will also allows you to appoint suitable guardians for your children and design maintenance trusts for their benefit, where necessary. There may also be a need for your Will to be mindful of future changes too, such as marriage of the survivor, or to protect your home against care home fees.

All these important and sensitive matters can be addressed by a Will. Writing a Will may feel hard, it could seem too delicate to address certain issues or it may feel overly complicated to put together. This is where we step in, our team guide you through the process with empathy and sensitivity, but also with a clear focus on putting you in the best possible legal position to reflect your wishes. The consequences of procrastination can be severe so we take a caring, measured approach to ensure that your future wishes are correctly protected. Our task is to make the complicated simple and the daunting easily overcome.
