Did you know that 53% of civil cases in Indian courts have been filed against family members? A large number of them are disputes with regard to the sharing of property and assets between siblings and relatives. Many property owners in India neglect making a clear will of ownership or distribution and hence their progeny end up having disputes. Making your will early can help save your family distress at a later point of time.
Making a will becomes even more important if the assets are large and widespread. Sometimes assets such as shares and long term debentures will be held in different names and conditions. These need to be sorted out for the future generation by its current owners.
With digitization growing by leaps and bounds in India, will writing has also now gone online. It is now possible to generate a will with the single click of a button. The basic will creation service is available free of charge. You can also opt for value-added services such as consulting with an attorney who will explain the complete process to all paid users.
For an additional fee, a custom printed will be delivered to your doorstep. Check out these online will writing services below:
