Why make a Will? A Will helps protect children & property, especially in the UAE . It prevents disputes which arise within families after death. It prevents property from litigation and/or being decided by courts. A will eliminates the need for the grieving family to spend large sums of money and time to obtain a simple succession certificate from the courts. In addition, the courts will insist that they get 'no-objection' letters from extended family members who may be hard to reach or even hostile.
A Succession set comprises a Last Will and Testament, a set of POA's (Power of Attorney), Letter of Wishes and an Asset list. A succession set can be drawn up regardless of age, nationality, religion, marital status & location of assets.
