We can also provide legal assistance in drawing up your Will. Many people assume that after death their assets will automatically be passed on to their loved ones. This, however, is not always the case.
If you do not have a will, the law will determine who actually inherits your property. In some cases, there are gaps in the law; for example, there is no legal provision for unmarried couples (partners living in a stable relationship), stepchildren, or even about who should take care (or retain guardianship) of your children in your absence.
Even in the case of married couples, in certain circumstances, the husband or wife may inherit only part of the assets. If you do not have any biological parents, your property may go to the government.
We believe that it is for you to decide how you want your assets distributed after your death, and at M Reale Solicitors we will draw up your will so that your wishes are respected and in full compliance with the law.
