Two of Hollywood's leading men who have both sadly passed away leaving behind daughters. one wrote their Will age 28 leaving everything to his sole daughter, the other died age 28 but left a Will written before having his daughter, meaning she was not a named beneficary. Thankfully in both cases their daughters have been the beneficiaries of their estate but you can imagine one process was much more secure and straightforward than the other #protectyourchildren #itsnevertoosoontowriteyourWill #reviewyourWillregularly #fathers #daughters #CarsonHughes

This week is LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering week ๐ŸŽ‰ a week to raise awareness, led by New Family Social to shout about the amazing news that 1 in 7 adoptions in England last year were by same sex couples, but we still have well over 78,000 children in care ๐Ÿ˜ข this week let's remember that Love makes a Family #loveisallyouneed #fostering #adoption #familyplanninginestateplanning #CarsonHughes

You might not be surprised to know that your funeral wishes are recorded in your Will, but you might be surprised at how much detail you can include. Muhammad Ali included details of plans for his Islamic funeral, memorial service- including a festival and a public event to host at least 15,000 of his fans! It was an amazing celebration of life. Help your loved ones make the right decisions by expressing your wishes either in your Will or with a funeral plan (or both ๐Ÿ˜€) #wecanhelpwithboth #getintouch #taketheguessingoutofsayinggoodbye #CarsonHughes

Over recent weeks we've been researching and discussing what we can do to help people involved in surrogacy. It's been incredible to talk to IP's and organisations to have our questions answered and help us prepare.

If you haven't written a Will then the law sets out what happens to your estate when you die, which is called Intestacy. And today the Intestacy law changed; if you have a surviving spouse they will inherit the first ยฃ270k of your estate (up from ยฃ250k) anything above that will be split 50% to the spouse and 50% between all your children. If there is no spouse it will all split between children. If this doesn't suit you then #getintouch #weallhaveaWill #intestacy #whowroteyours #CarsonHughes

JM Recruitment

Last week we descended upon Basingstoke to network along side other local businesses, whilst there we met Lisa of Carson & Hughes. Impressed by our views towards supporting the Armed Forces and after hearing how we support veterans and members of the wider armed forces community, Lisa got in touch to say hello and that she would like offer her discounts to all JM Recruitment drivers.

Another sad news story about how a carer is currently on trial in Reading Crown Court accused of starving her patient to death after forging his Will to make herself beneficiary. A good professional on going relationship with your Will Writer, registering and securely storing your Will can help defend your genuine wishes from attacks such as this. But it is awful the situations happen in the first place #makeyourwishesknown #Protectyourwishes

The brilliantly funny Terry Jones passed away last week after suffering with Frontotemporal Dementia and it's been confirmed that he successfully donated his brain to science to help advance our understanding of the condition. This type of organ donation is different from standard, and needs planning. If you would like more information, then please #getintouch #organdonation #donatetosciencetosavelivestoo #CarsonHughes

Today Lord Falconer will re-introduce the Assisted Dying Bill to the House of Lords. The Bill hopes to make it legal to assist a terminally ill person end their life legally. Currently the Forfeiture Rule in law means if you unlawfully kill someone, you can not benefit from their estate. So this Bill could help protect loves ones from that fate #assisteddying #givingpeoplechoice #law #CarsonHughes

Feel good Friday news; Matt and Michael in Dublin had been friends for over 50years, so when Michael lost his home due to recession, and with all other family gone, Matt invited him to move in. Furthermore he wanted to leave his house to Michael in his Will. The 2 friends went on to marry in 2017 so that no inheritance tax would be payable upon Matt's death when he passed in 2019 #friends #whenestateplanningworks #FeelgoodFriday #CarsonHughes

A little checklist if you're looking to get your life admin sorted this year;
Life insurance - do you have sufficient cover to repay your debts/support your family's living arrangements?
Critical illness/accident sickness cover - if you were unable to work for an extended period of time how would your finances suffer, how would you life change beyond the illness?
Trusts - have you put your life insurance and pensions (where applicable) in Trust? This ensures they get to recipients quicker and tax free
Your Powers of Attorney - if you needed someone to act for you, support you, or decide for you on a temporary or permanent basis who could take that role?
Your Will - to plan your estate, protect your estate from inheritance tax, disinheriting, legal challenges and family upset

The first Monday after New Year is said to be #nationaldivorceday when a spike occurs in the number of divorces filed following a stressful Christmas. Divorce affects inheritance pathways whether you have a Will or not. A previous spouse has a legal right to file a claim on your estate if they have never re-married. The only way of protecting your wishes; write a Will #getintouch #adviceisfree #CarsonHughes

Some Monday feel good news; the wife of the late Chester Bennington, Talinda Bennington has shared 50% of his estate royalties left to her with his ex-wife; Samantha. Apparently his Will made provision for all of his children but not Samantha. When Samantha filed a legal challenge, Talinda filed documents to confirm she would allow Samantha's claim - with no court room drama #resolution #supportingoneanother #goodvibes #CarsonHughes

Writing a Will isn't the end of the matter, things need to be checked and kept up to date. James Brown died on Christmas day in 2006, and 13 years later legal battles between ex and current wives, and children (all because he didn't update his Will between marriage 3 and 4) meant his estimated $100million estate at time of death is now estimated closer to $5million - and still not settled ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ #wekeepintouch #wehelpyoustayuptodate #CarsonHughes
