The rich variety of family life can throw up a wide range of considerations when making your will. If you have been married before and have children from different relationships to provide for, you are concerned about appointing guardians, funeral arrangements or even what will happen to your pets, a carefully drafted will can put your mind to rest.

In this series of guides, Shelly Wainwright, wills and probate lawyer at Ansons Solicitors in Lichfield and Cannock, Staffordshire, gives her top 10 tips for making a will.

8 – Do I need to include a trust in my will?

Not always. Trusts can be used in wills and are helpful to preserve assets for future generations and protect assets from third part claims. Trusts do not have to be complicated and we can advise you about trust options if they are relevant to your circumstances.
