What is Will Custody?
A Will is perhaps the most important document that can ensure your wishes come true and protect the well-being of your loved ones when you are not around. Protecting it and ensuring that it can be found are of utmost importance. Documents can be misplaced or lost. So can your Will. A Will which cannot be found is as good as having none.
A Will is the best way to ensure that your instructions for the well-being of your family are carried out when you are no longer around. But writing a Will is only half of the story. The other half is keeping it in a secure place. Some people hide their Will so well it is as good as lost! Most people would keep it in a bank safe deposit box. Not a good idea when it comes to a Will. Simply because when the account holder is no longer around, the deposit box and everything in it will be frozen. What can your family do then?
Although making a Will enables your last wishes to be made known, you should ensure that your Will can be found quickly and easily when the need arises.
