Using a lawyer
By Martin Brieger, Site Editor.
Lawyers are the experts, which is why this is the most expensive option. It will, however, give you most peace of mind, especially if your wishes are complex.
Consider a lawyer if:
Your estate might be liable to pay tax.
You have a complicated family situation, such as former partners or estranged children, and want to ensure your wishes will be met.
You want to protect someone after you’ve passed on – for example, a disabled family member.
You want to talk through your options with a pro, or need support you can trust.
