Life doesn’t always go quite to plan. Deciding to get married is one of the biggest decisions that most of us will ever make, as is deciding to get divorced. Each of these leads to a spider’s web of other decisions to make and considerations to give some thought to. Who do I want to leave my estate to? Who will look after my interests in I am unable to do so myself? Will my ex be able to get his hands on my hard-earned cash? How can I protect my family wealth if my children find themselves in hardship? What will happen if I do nothing at all? What would happen if my relationship with my family changes? WILL EVERYTHING BE OKAY? The uncertainty surrounding what the future holds for us can leave us foggy and unable to make a decision at all.
However, the beauty of both Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney is that they can both be made to suit your current circumstances and be changed later on as things change. They don’t have to be lifelong decisions. They can be built to suit your needs of today, and changed to suit your needs of tomorrow.
A Will can be made and remade throughout your lifetime and it is only the very last Will you make that would then take effect when you die.
A Lasting Power of Attorney can be made and registered and then later altered to remove Attorneys’ if the need arises and a new one made if you wish to change it altogether. For example, if you appoint your spouse under an LPA you can later revoke the LPA in its entirety or partially revoke their personal appointment instead.
Both Wills and Lasting Power of Attorneys, while they contain very important decisions and directions, there really is no need to put them off because you don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring. They are both about preparing for that worst case scenario. If tomorrow brings rain, get out your umbrella and protect yourself from the storm. When the sun shines again, swap the rain mac for a pair of ray bans and protect yourself from the sun.
