Making a Will

Writing a Will can involve some complex issues, even for relatively simple estates. Our Will writing solicitors can talk through your estate and requirements with you, including key issues such as Inheritance Tax planning and setting up trusts for children and other dependants.

Updating your Will

You will need to update your Will whenever your personal or financial circumstances change. Our Will solicitors in Carmarthen can advise on the best way to do this, including through the use of an additional legal document known as a codicil or the creation of an entirely new Will may be required.

This will set out what should happen to your loved one’s estate on their death, removing any uncertainty. Our team can help with making a Statutory Will application, giving you the best chance of success and dealing with any amendments suggested by the Court.
