Experienced Southampton Solicitors
At Access Law, our solicitors in Southampton are experienced and dedicated to fighting and representing you, with the aim to provide a sympathetic, practical approach. We pride ourselves on our client care and are experts in all areas of law, including Will/Probate, Family Law, and Powers of Attorney.
The most important thing to remember concerning Wills and Probate is that it’s better to make a Will than not, and to keep your Will up to date. A Will becomes invalid if circumstances change, as beneficiaries may increase or decrease. If you don’t make a Will, your estate will be disposed of under the rules of Intestacy. This means that your estate may not be distributed the way you intended.
As your solicitors, Southampton clients will need to provide the following information:
We will then draw up a draft copy of your Will for you to approve in order to ensure there are no errors or omissions. Once you have approved the draft, the Will itself will be printed, then signed in the presence of two independent witnesses. These witnesses can’t be people otherwise mentioned in the Will as Beneficiaries, Executors, or Trustees. Our staff are happy to witness your signature.
Your Will is an important document which should be stored in a safe place. At Access Law, we are happy to store your Will at no extra charge.
Our Family Law team are very experienced in matters of Divorce, Care, Injunctions, Contact with Children, International Child Abduction, Family Financial Disputes, Civil Partnerships, and similar issues. We endeavour to provide a reassuring and sympathetic response tempered by a realistic and practical approach to what are often difficult and emotional circumstances.
As solicitors in Southampton with nearly a century of experience between us, we usually recommend a sensitive, constructive, and non-confrontational approach to settling differences. Where children are involved, we always advise that, whenever possible, there needs to be a continuing positive working relationship between parents.
We are one of the most accomplished teams of family law solicitors in the area and pride ourselves on a service we believe is second to none. As a team, we ensure your interests are our prime consideration.
