    anyone bothered making a Willl?

    my beautiful daughter was born on Sunday, and being the practical type, i thought it was time the wife and I made a will, though it creeps me out. any other parents already made a will (im 32 and wifey is 30)?

    also I don't think I really need a lawyer to divide up the clothes, tv and dvd collection.

    Congrats on the new baby girl....wills, like pre nups are a practical necessity, just to make sure your interests are protected and the spoon collection goes to who you want.

    Congrats Bulldog - Thailand has certain laws pertaining to distribution of an estate. You may or may not have assets that need a will for distribution.

    Yes. It's a good idea to have a will for one reason - your new daughter. You and your wife should make wills that name a Guardian, including an alternate guardian, in the event you both should pass away. If there is no will, then the laws of succession will apply if you both die intestate.

    It's not that difficult and it has to be done. If you are in Thailand, you might want to have a look here:

    I am sure that for many a will is an essential bit of planning. However, there is one area where it could cause big problems, or at least not do what you want. If you have life insurance, at least from an American company, and have given the company a written designation of beneficiary then the designation is what determined who will get the money, not your will.

    There are occassional horrow stories of people who have gotten divorced, remarried and had children. They have a will giving the money from the life insurance to the wife and children. Unfortunately, ten or twenty years before (actually, any time before) they designated their then beloved wife, now detested ex-wife, as their beneficiary on their life insurance. Who get the money when the person dies? The ex-wife.

    So, if at some time in the past you have filed a designation of beneficiary be sure that you change/cancel it with the insurance company. A will changes nothing in this regard.

    Making a will in each country that you hold property is advisable.
    I am currently handling a case involving Canadian Law for a client, and wish that a will had been made there.
