When you travel for holiday or business trips, do your loved ones know the location of your legal WILL?
Even today, as you commute to and from work, do they know where to find your last WILL and testament?
What happen if both husband and wife meet with an accident and pass-on together? Do their parents or siblings know the location of their Wills?
We received countless emails from people of different nationalities and cultures. Some requested our help to locate the Wills of both their aged parents who met with a fatal accident. They knew their parents have written their Wills, but no one knows where the Wills are kept.
Similarly, we also received emails where the unthinkable happened to parents of young children. The siblings of the deceased are unable to find the Wills and these young children are left behind without ever knowing their parent's Will.
The problems are very real from the emails we received. Many related their heartfelt stories and we are saddened that many Wills are not found.
Solicitors worldwide will tell you that a significant percentage of legal WILLs, are NOT executed because they CANNOT be found.
Recent comment from a solicitor:
"During my regular Will writing seminars, which I conduct on a monthly basis, the common question that always surfaces from the audience is how would their love ones ever found out where the Will was kept. This question always baffles me until I chanced upon your website."
Recent comment from a financial adviser:
"An important component of estate planning is to plan for the unthinkable. If it happens, the loved ones of our clients must know where the Wills are kept. Unfortunately, many don't or don't border until it's too late. When I came across Global Will Registry, I knew I found the solution for many of my clients. It's a small, but critical step to close the loop in estate planning."
Too often after a Will is written, many ignore the most important step, i.e. to communicate the Will location not just to their spouses, but to other loved ones as well. Many procrastinate until it is too late.
Sometimes, even those who have communicated the whereabouts of their legal WILL find that their loved ones may have forgotten where their last Wills are kept (as years pass).
We understand that keeping track of loved ones Will location is a challenge for many families.
It is even more prevalent in today's globalized world where family members reside in different countries (or states) for work or other opportunities; knowing the Will locations of family members becomes even more complex.
So, how to protect your legal WILL, even if your loved ones forget its location?
The easiest and most cost effective way is to register your last WILL location with an EASY-TO-REMEMBER global WILL registry. And communicate to your loved ones to check the WILL registry when the time comes.
You or any of your loved ones may have reside abroad or in other states. You may have changed your WILL or WILL location countless number of times. With a global WILL registry, it is very easy for your loved ones to track the location of your WILL anywhere and anytime, if the unthinkable happens.
