While the need for a will may vary based on individual circumstances and legal requirements in different jurisdictions, several groups of people can benefit from having a Will. Here are some examples of who may need a Will: 

Adults with assets 

If you own property, have financial investments, personal belongings, or any other assets, having a will can help ensure that your possessions are distributed according to your wishes after your death. 

Parents of minor children  

Parents should have a will to designate guardianship for their minor children in case both parents pass away. This allows parents to decide who will take care of their children and provide for their well-being. 

Individuals with specific wishes 

Anyone who has specific preferences for the distribution of their assets or wishes to leave gifts or donations to certain people or charitable organisations should have a will to ensure their intentions are carried out. 

Those with blended families 

If you have a blended family with children from previous relationships, a will can help clarify how your assets should be divided among your current spouse and children from different marriages or partnerships. 

Individuals with digital assets 

In today’s digital age, people often have online accounts and assets, such as social media accounts, cryptocurrency, or digital content. A Will can address the distribution or management of these digital assets after death. 

Business owners  

Business owners may want to use a will to specify what should happen to their business after they pass away. This can include designating a successor or outlining plans for the business’s future. 

Individuals with special needs beneficiaries 

If you have dependents with special needs who require ongoing care and support, a will can be used to establish a trust or provide for their long-term financial security. 

Individuals who want to minimise family disputes 

Having a clear and legally valid will can help prevent potential conflicts and disputes among family members over the distribution of assets. 

Remember that laws regarding wills and estate planning vary from country to country. The team at The Will Genie are here to help you understand the specific requirements and regulations in your jurisdiction and to ensure that your will accurately reflects your wishes and is legally valid.
