Hi, my name is Richard, I have a beautiful family : my dad and mom, my wife and our 2 daughters. I have a house, a car and a successful business and some savings in the bank. My wife is a homemaker. She sees to the family needs and brings our girls to School and ensures that the household is well taken care of while I concentrate on my business to bring back the needful monies.
As a sole breadwinner of the family, I am concerned that some preparation work needs to be put in place in the event I am no longer around. I know it is important to make a Will but I am not sure how to go about doing it. So I seek professionals for advice. I understand that without having a Will, my estate will be managed by the court-appointed administrator upon my death. My estate will be distributed based on the intestate succession act in Singapore. For my case, the law states that 50% of my estate will be given to my wife and 50% of it will be given to our 2 daughters equally; my parents get nothing. I want to make provision for them too so I want to change this arrangement.
I know my wife does not want to run my business too. If I am no longer around, I want my share to be sold to either my business partner or someone who is willing to take over the business. The proceeds of this sale will be distributed accordingly to my wish, a greater part of it I want to contribute to the spiritual and charitable organizations of my choice. 100 percent of my monies in the bank will be given to my wife as she knows best what is good for our daughters with these monies on hand.
The professionals told me by having a Will written, I can manage the distribution of the different assets according to my wish and I have full control of it. I can name my wife as the executor to distribute my estate according to my Will. I was also told that with a Will written, the process for the distribution can be speed up as compared to those without a Will. My wife can apply for the grant of probate and as the process is faster, my wife can have access to my monies quicker during such a trying period. If I do not have a Will, my wife can touch the money only until the court process the letter of administration. The process takes very long and my monies could be locked and no one including my wife can access to it.
Now that I have a written Will and have full control of my family’s future, my wife is comforted that if things happen she is assured that she does not have to worry financially. I feel that I shouldn’t be delaying any further! It is my responsibility to do so! It is better to be safe than sorry! This is the way to show my family that I love them!
Writing a Will is not as complicated as I used to think. You can write your Will too. It is never too early to make a Will!

We believe that writing a Will is one of the most important things you can do, as it allows you to decide how you want your asset to be distributed to the people you care about, even when you’re no longer here. A Will will ensures that all your assets, no matter how abundant or how modest, are properly distributed according to your wishes after your death. If you are aware of the Pitfalls of Intestacy Rules, you would want to get your Will written the soonest.
Why do I need a Will?

- You decide which specific friends or family, who would otherwise not receive anything, to receive special sentimental possessions;
- You avoid family disputes by making your wishes clear;
- You avoid confusion as to who will need to administer your estate at a stressful time of need;
- You provide for people or organization which is special in your life;
- and many more other reasons …
What is a Valid Will?
A Valid Will is one that fullfills the followings :
- The will must be in writing.
- The testator must be at least 21 years old.
- The testator must sign at the foot of the Will.
- The testator’s signature must be made or acknowledged in the presence of at least two or more witnesses present at the same time.
- The two witnesses must also sign in the presence of the testator.
Take note that the two signature witnesses cannot be beneficiaries of the will, or spouses of beneficiaries. If the testator is unable to sign at the foot of his will, he may allow another person to sign it on his behalf and in his presence.
The testator must intend by his signature to give effect to the Will (in other words, he cannot be under any undue influence or any form of fraud, or under influence of drugs and alcohol). Failure to comply can expose a testator’s Will to challenge and lead to expensive and time-consuming disputes.
We have made our Will. Have You?
I wasn’t really ready to make a Will when Mary shared with me about Will writing some years ago. It was only during the time when I was seriously ill and looking at my young children, I suddenly realized that life could be so vulnerable. I wouldn’t know what would happen to me next, hence, I decided to write one. I wanted to ensure that my children would be taken care of by the people I trust and decide on how my monies would be used to ensure that my children got the best out of their growing up, if without me. People used to say that talking about such topic is a taboo. I strongly feel now that without preparation and believing that there will always be ample time to prepare for anything would be the greatest mistake. Honestly, I’m much relieved now that I have made my Will, knowing that my children will be taken care of should any unfortunate happens to me. Thanks Mary for the good follow-up with me on making a Will.
