Hi, before planning to do a Will, need to understand more on your family structure and what are the concerns you and your parents have.

At my side, we have a monthly complimentary seminars on Will Writing presented by Lawyer and it is advisable to attend to find out more if really keen to draft a Will, thank you.

Show them articles of disputes and folks fighting over assets once someone has passed away. Lots of such articles on our local media.

Thank you! I'm glad my blog ramblings have helped you :)

Explain that Wills are not for the deceased but for the living.

Would they wish that which your heart is broken, at the same time you have to fight off sharks and companies trying to get a share?

Consider maybe your parents wanted a simple funeral, but someone who thinks they know better will fight you tooth and nails. All because of no instructions on the form of a simple Will.

You should be able to think of something that will make sense to your parents using this template.

If no Will, if you wish for XYZ, you may not get it because of ABC will insist otherwise.

Better still, now there's the free will writing online? Check it out and let us know.
