DH and I have been married for nearly a year. Have two ds's. I've been wanting to sort out wills for both of us for some time now.
Mumsnetters, can you help me:
1. give dh a list of reasons why it's so important as he is somewhat laidback about the whole thing.
2. give me an idea where to start - do I just ring my local solicitor or contact one of these will writing companies?
Please can I recommend that you do NOT use a will writing company. It is better to invest a little more money and expertise into your will. DH makes more money from sorting out badly prepared will-writing company and/or hom made wills than he does from preparing and drafting a proper will.
Choose a solicitor who has specialised in this area of law and you will save yourself (or rather your executor's and your estate) a lot of time and/or money in the long run.
Thanks for posting (and thanks to everyone else too). I've been reading the article on wills on Mumsnet and plan to show it and discuss with dh tomorrow evening. Been out all day today with ds's, now that they have both recovered from chickenpox.
