Why You Need to Make A Will
January 30, 2013 by
You need a will to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you die without a will (intestate) the following happens:
- If you are unmarried your spouse will receive nothing – common-law relationships are not recognised under the laws of intestacy.
- Your spouse will not automatically inherit your property and possessions – everything is divided according to the laws of intestacy.
- If you have children, their guardianship will be determined by the Court. The Court will decide where and who they live with.
- Any step-children, grandchildren, friends etc. will receive nothing under the laws of intestacy.
Make your will today and let tomorrow take of itself.
