为什么您需要立嘱?

Why Do You Need A Will?

 


让现实告诉您,为什么您需要立嘱。

 

看一则影响至亲未来的故事》

 

三年前,A在婚前独自购买了一间房子,后来结婚并育有孩子。

 

A在今年不幸身亡,在没有立遗嘱的情况下,房子的50%权益将归孩子,25%归妻子,25%归A的父母。

 

不久后,妻子也离世了,那没有立遗嘱的情况下,那权益的三分之一归妻子的父母,的三分之二归孩子。若妻子的父母过后也离世,并留下8个孩子,那他们每人平分8份。

 

若A的父母也去世,情况如上,意味着一间屋子如今拥有差不多20个联名人,若联名人当中有人在无立下遗嘱的情况下死亡,情况就无法想象了。

 

Let reality tell you why you need a Will.

 

<A story that will change your view>

 

Three years ago, A bought a house. He had subsequently got married and had two children.

 

Unfortunately, A passed away in 2020 without having a Will.  Pursuant to the intestacy laws, half of the rights and interest over his house went to his children. The remaining shares were distributed 25% to A’s wife, and 25% to A’s parents.

 

Soon after, A’s wife had also passed away without having a Will. Due to the absence of a Will, one third of the rights over A’s house held by A’s wife are required to be distributed to the parents of A’s wife. The remaining two thirds of the rights over the house held by A’s wife would subsequently be distributed to her children.

 

Imagine, if the parents of A’s wife, who had 8 other children of their own, had also passed away later on. The rights over the house held by the wife’s parents, would subsequently be further distributed to these 8 children who would all have equal shares in one third interest of the house initially held by the parents of A’s wife.

 

Confused?

 

Moving forward, if A’s parents had also passed away, similar to the above situation, the distribution of the rights over the house would be further complicated with almost 20 joint beneficiaries now. The scariest thing is that if one of the joint beneficiaries dies without making a Will, the situation would be even worse.

 

The purpose of making a Will is to prevent this from happening.

 

 

预立遗嘱,是为了防备。

 

灾难不分年龄

 

我们永远也不知道,明天和意外哪个先来,您以为的“来日方长”,很可能是“永失我爱”。只有在经历过灾难,我们才会知道,死亡其实离我们非常之近,对于每个人来说,这世界上除了生死,再无大事。灾难无法预测,也许一场幸喜愉悦的旅程,在一夕间,造就成一场惊心动魄的分离。因此趁早立下遗嘱,让您的至亲有份爱的寄托

 

Unfortunate events may happen regardless of age

 

It is hard for us to predict the future as we will never know when an accident may occur to us. You may think that you have plenty of time to prepare for your passing. However, reality tends to sweep people off their feet.

 

Disasters are unpredictable and unpreventable. As such, planning and preparation for such disasters are hence pivotal. Having a Will would make it much easier for your family or friends to arrange for your affairs upon your passing.

 

Without a Will, the distribution process of your estate would be more time consuming and stressful for your loved ones, especially during their time of grievance. So, prepare your Will as early as possible as your parting gift to your loved ones.

 

病毒不分贵贱

 

在这新世纪,病毒的演变越来越新颖,谁能保证不会有第二次的‘新型冠状病毒’的出现?它们的袭击将让您措手不及,随时让一个健全的成年人,在短短的数天里甚至几小时里流失宝贵的性命。所以,立遗嘱不但能确保您的意愿不被疫情缭乱,遗嘱也将成为您与您至亲的保障。当您到了美丽的天堂,您留下的回忆像活水源头,不断地惠及后人。

 

Pandemics happen regardless of who you are

 

In light of the recent Covid-19 pandemic, it is prevalent that a multitude of individuals were taken away from their loved ones regardless of their age, health, wealth, or background. Not to mention the multitude of illnesses that one may suffer at this day and age as delaying the drafting of ones’ Will only place ailing individuals in a precarious position.

 

Having a Will not only protects your right to distribute your estate, it also acts as a guarantee for your loved ones. Leave them with good memories and distribute your estate as you wish to benefit your future generations.

 

争产不分尊卑

 

您留下的产业是留给家人们一份美丽的礼物,还是一颗随时作响的炸弹?

现今社会经常发生子女为争遗产而翻脸,甚至对簿公堂。有些人对于预立遗嘱这件事,认为是不祥的徵兆,若一方敢提立遗嘱一事,此举将会被认为不孝敬。这导致许多子女因争财产而导致骨肉相残。站在法律前线的我们,也看见了很多悲惨的个案,因此,我们强烈建议大家做個有智慧、有远见的长者,自己预先立好「遗嘱」。

这是因为立嘱后,我们可以行使本身的权力,委任我们属意的人管理我们的遗产,执行我们的意愿,以保护我们至亲的利益。在这种情况下,可以避免发生有关遗产管理权力的家庭纷争。

 

Conflicts happen in every family

 

It is common for family members to dispute over their loved ones’ inheritance even to the extent where such disputes were brought to the court.

 

It is granted that some elderlies do consider that having a Will is an ominous sign. However, we strongly advice everyone especially the elderly to consider having a Will in order to prevent the possible inheritance disputes between family members.
