When appointing someone to take charge of your financial and personal matters, you need the right advice from professionals who will understand your circumstances and relationships. We will explain the scope such a power and help you to determine when and why you want it to come into effect.

As part of our Wills and Estates Planning Service, Respect Legal can handle your Digital Assets. We use cutting edge technology for storing and protecting digital assets so that when you pass away they can be readily accessed by whoever you choose. Your loved ones can now avoid the stress and confusion of trying to access your assets such as cryptocurrency after you pass away. Nobody can see your data until you pass away but your legal representatives can store the data for you.
If you have recently separated we strongly recommend that you update your Will. In many marriages, it is common for one partner to appoint the other as executor and beneficiary of the estate. But once you separate, your Will remains valid, which means that your ex partner may be entitled to inherit any property left to them, and may remain the executor, despite having separated from you. We therefore recommend that you seek legal advice to review and update your will as soon as you separate.
