At 360 Business Law, we offer global wills law services that allow individuals to express their wishes regarding the distribution of their property and assets after their death, no matter where they are located

Wills law covers various aspects, including the formal requirements for creating a valid will, the appointment of executors to administer the estate, and the distribution of assets to beneficiaries. It also encompasses issues such as testamentary capacity, revocation of wills, and the interpretation of testamentary provisions.

This area of law aims to ensure that the wishes of the deceased are respected and carried out according to their intentions. It provides a legal framework to safeguard the rights of heirs and beneficiaries, establish the validity of wills, and prevent disputes or challenges to the distribution of assets.

Wills law also addresses the legal mechanisms for estate planning, including tax planning, charitable bequests, trusts, and other instruments to protect and preserve assets for future generations.

Understanding wills law is essential for individuals to effectively plan their estates, ensure their loved ones are provided for, and mitigate the potential for disputes or confusion after their passing. It provides the legal foundation to honor the wishes of individuals and protect the interests of beneficiaries in matters of inheritance.

How We Can Help

Will Creation and Execution

This area of wills law focuses on the legal requirements for creating a valid will. It includes aspects such as testamentary capacity, formalities for executing a will (such as witnessing and signing), and the use of digital or electronic wills.

Intestate Succession

This aspect deals with the distribution of assets when an individual dies without a valid will. It encompasses the legal framework that determines how the estate is divided among the deceased person’s heirs according to the rules of intestacy.

Testamentary Trusts

This area covers the establishment and administration of trusts created through a will. It includes provisions for managing and distributing assets for specific purposes or beneficiaries, such as minor children, individuals with special needs, or charitable organisations.

Executorship and Administration

This aspect addresses the roles and responsibilities of executors, who are appointed in a will to administer the estate. It includes the legal obligations of executors, obtaining grants of probate or letters of administration, asset valuation, debt settlement, and distribution of assets to beneficiaries.

Will Revocation and Amendment

This area deals with the legal mechanisms for revoking or amending an existing will. It covers the requirements for valid revocation, such as creating a new will or executing a revocation document, and the implications of subsequent wills or codicils.

Construction and Interpretation

This aspect focuses on the interpretation and construction of will provisions to determine the testator’s intent. It involves resolving ambiguities, rectifying mistakes, and addressing issues of ademption, lapse, or failure of gifts.

Family Provision and Testamentary Capacity Challenges

This area involves disputes or challenges to the validity or terms of a will. It includes claims for family provision, where certain individuals may seek a greater share of the estate, as well as challenges based on allegations of lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, or fraud.

Living Wills and Advance Directives

This aspect involves the legal instruments that allow individuals to express their wishes regarding medical treatment and end-of-life decisions in case of incapacity. It includes living wills, healthcare proxies, and advance directives, which are separate from traditional wills but are essential components of comprehensive estate planning.
