How we can help with Will writing services in Norwich

Making a Will

Making a Will does not need to be something you dread. Our team provide sensitive, friendly support to keep the process straightforward and allow you to avoid unnecessary stress. We can guide you through making provisions for all of your assets, including those that are complex and high value so that you can have total peace of mind.

Our Will writing solicitors can assist with:

  • Advice on which assets need to be included in your Will
  • Drafting a Will
  • Storing your Will
  • Acting as professional Executors of your Will
  • Advice on other lifetime planning options, including Lasting Powers of Attorney and trusts

Updating a Will

A Will is not something that you make once and then can simply forget about. It needs to be reviewed regularly and updated when necessary to reflect any change in your circumstances. Small changes (such as a change of name after marriage or divorce of a beneficiary) can usually be made with the addition of a supplementary document called a ‘codicil’, while bigger changes may need a new Will to be created.

Our Will writing solicitors can assist with options including:

  • Reviewing the terms of your current Will and advising on their implications for your estate
  • Amending your existing Will with a codicil
  • Drafting a new Will where required

Mirror Wills

Mirror Wills are often chosen for those who are married, in a civil partnership or in a long-term relationship.

With Mirror Wills, you and your partner have identical Wills that leave your entire estate to each other. Normally the Wills will also state what should happen when you both pass away, for example, that your estate should pass to any children you have together.

Mirror Wills are a cost-effective option for those in a long-term relationship, but there are many factors to consider, particularly if you each have children from an earlier relationship It is very important to take specialist advice before deciding whether this is the right option for you.
