It can be an uncomfortable reality, but creating a will, or investing in an estate plan is an important part of life. This is a sponsored post.
WHILE death can be hard to think about, Capon & Hubert Lawyers & Mediators help take the discomfort out of making a will, says wills and estate planning lawyer Ashilpa Khanna.
When death occurs, a common misconception, according to Ashilpa, is the spouse takes control of the estate and its assets, which is not generally the case.
“If you don’t make a will, the state’s law effectively does it for you,” says Ashilpa, who urges people to create a will to secure a plan for the future.
“For families, a relative dying without a will causes significant strife, since a will names the legal guardians of the person’s children.
“The last thing you want to have if you die is a fight over who’s going to raise your children.”
But to better cushion any sudden tragedies, Ashilpa firmly believes everyone should have an estate plan and it all starts with a will.
At Capon & Hubert Lawyers & Mediators, Ashilpa says great care is taken into providing expert and honest advice, ensuring each client is aware of the legal process and disclosing any upfront fees.
“Our staff are experienced in their fields and we take pride in knowing our clients,” she says.
“We will always use common sense, respect, courtesy and good judgement when dealing with clients.”
