Edgar Morin said, “The certainty of death and the uncertainty of the hour of death is a source of grief throughout our life.”
What you can do is to take the opportunity now to make a will so that when the inopportune time comes, your wishes have been clearly and accurately expressed. This allows your loved ones to have clarity and focus during that difficult time.
With a will, you alone decide the selected beneficiaries who will receive what share of your assets. Without a will, your assets will be distributed under the Singapore intestacy rules. This means that your assets may not be distributed according to your wishes.
If you have young children, you can appoint a trusted person to be a guardian in your place. Otherwise, the court can make its decision as to who the guardian will be; and that guardian may not be who you have in mind.
We are mindful that every will is unique and has to be tailored to your specific needs. We will understand your objectives and advise you accordingly so that the making of your will is efficient and cost-effective.
