7 Things You Should Know
About Writing a Will
https://hhslawyers.com/blog/
WhyisaWill
Useful?
 First of all, a will contains your wishes after your death.
It has the information to whom you want certain assets
or anything that you own to go to (who are called the
beneficiaries).This is a legal document that will be
upheld by the concerned department in a country.The
testator (the one who owns the will) will have to choose
a testator (the one who executes the will) for the wishes
to be executed after the death of the former.
 This is helpful in a way that your loved ones would not
have to go through hassles of settling what you have left
behind.They would not have to fight over who will act
as a guardian for minor children or dependents.You will
also be ensured that the things that you have worked for
are going to the right people.
What Happens if
aWill isNotMade
BeforeSomeone’s
Death?
 There are a number of people who die without a will,
and the usual outcome is that the assets and
possessions of the deceased will have to be settled
based on the laws of the country he is in.The family or
close relatives of the deceased are usually the ones who
will receive what was left by the deceased.
 This causes difficulty on the part of your family as
certain assets go to people that they know are not
exactly your first choice. Since the deceased cannot
possibly do anything regarding the matter at hand, your
family is left to accept the ruling of the court.
CanWillsBe
Invalid?
 There are a lot of ways that will be invalid. Each country
has varying requirements that testators must follow in
order to not have an invalid will. It is such a hassle to
write a will only to have it be declared invalid on the
day it was supposed to be executed.
 This is why testators must not only double check if they
have met the conditions that are needed to be met but
to check it as many times as possible with the help of a
will lawyer in Dubai.
DoINeed an
Attorney to
Prepare MyWill?
 In general, you are not required to hire a lawyer.You can
write a will on your own. However, it is advisable for you
to find wills solicitors or will drafting services in Dubai
to guide you in how to do it and follow the rules in
doing so.
Who ShouldI
NameasMy
Executor?
 An executor of your will can either be your trusted
friend, spouse, or relative.You can also have the choice
of naming your attorney (as per your country’s laws) as
the executor of your will if you want someone who is
knowledgeable about the legal matters that come with
it.
HowOftenDoesa
Will NeedtoBe
Updated?
 It can be that a will needs not to be updated, but it is
advisable that it should be revisited by the testator to
ensure that everything still stands true. A will is
composed of major life decisions so it needs to be
checked once in a while.
 Moments like divorce, childbirth, the death of chosen
beneficiaries can affect one’s decisions about their will.
Who Hasthe
Rightto Contest
My Will?
 Beneficiaries are usually the people who challenge a
will.They might feel that the assets or possessions left
to them are not exactly what they assumed they would
receive, and they feel the need to contest because they
are expecting more. Some who do not receive anything
might contest that the will is fraudulent.
 There is a lot of reason why people would contest a will.
It can be because they feel that you were not in your
proper mind when you signed it or you were coerced to
sign a fraudulent will.
