March – Free Wills Month
Major charities are offering over 55s the opportunity to have a free will or will update provided by a local participating solicitor during the month of March. The idea is that you leave something to one of those charities in your Will.
This sounds like an excellent idea and I would encourage everybody to write a will.
My experience is that few wills are simple these days! Most families are complicated with divorce and remarriage frequent especially within this age group: the silver generation is statistically more likely to get divorced than any other and remarriage at this age would be likely to involve more complex arrangements than a simple will could allow.
So take this opportunity to write a will, keep in mind that a will is rarely simple, ensure that your loved ones are protected – take advice!
