Recommended Products for Young Families
Make sure that you’re Will contains Guardianship. This specifies to the courts who you would like to play an active role in your child’s upbringing if they are ever orphaned. It’s not a nice thing for young families to think about but it can happen, so make sure you make provision for them and don’t leave things to chance.
Other products to consider include:
Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) – this will allow you to elect someone to legally act on your behalf if you are unable to do so for medical reasons.
Family Trust – Adding a Trust to your Will allows you to have greater control over your Estate if you die. For example, it can ensure that your share of the property passes to your children in the event that you die. This prevents complications should your partner remarry.
