Legal translation of your will or testament may be required to ensure that your estate is inherited by those you would wish.
The current coronavirus pandemic has made many of us more aware of our mortality and has made us stop to consider how our loved ones will be provided for in the event of our death. If you have dependents who financially rely on you, you might have thought about how they would cope if the worst were to happen to you. We all want to think that we will leave our dependents as well provided for as possible. We would also like to think of them with a roof over their head, without having the upheaval of moving home.
But this could be more complicated than you might think if you die without leaving a will or if you have assets abroad. Every country is different and it is good to seek legal advice in the relevant country or countries as there are certain situations that may prove problematic without a will. It could be you have a partner but you are not married or in a civil partnership.
Or perhaps you have children from a previous relationship or have other family members who may make a claim on your estate. Whatever your situation, making a will and having your will translated where relevant by a professional translation agency, such as Linguation.com, is probably a good idea for a number of reasons. For example, writing a will and providing a professional translation when required should help:
• you to decide how your processions are distributed
• you to make provision for a partner (particularly if you are not married or in a civil partnership)
• you to state your preferred plan should any dependent children be orphaned
• you to ensure children from previous relationships are catered for
• you to make consideration for older offspring who may still be living in the family home at the time of your death; would you really want them to have to lose their home also immediately after your death?
So this doesn’t happen you might consider specifying a time allowing them to stay in the family home before your property is sold and shared with other offspring.
