What should I write in my will?

When writing a will, you should consider the following issues for inclusion in your will:

  • What are my assets and how would I like my assets to be distributed
  • Who are my beneficiaries and how would I like them to benefit from my estate
  • Are there any specific assets that I wish to be distributed to a certain beneficiary
  • Who would I like to be guardian of my minor children (if any)
  • Who will I nominate to be executor of my estate and what powers and responsibilities should they have
  • Do I have any specific wishes for my funeral or donation of organs
