Our business started when my husband and I realised through casual conversation over a braai, how few of our friends have a Last Will & Testament. We then started asking more friends who mostly said one of two things. Either they said “yes we have one, but it hasn’t been updated since we had kids”, or “ nope, I keep forgetting”.
The reality is that we lead busy lives, and although it’s not a difficult process, it does require us to make an appointment, and take time off work to go and get it done. And that’s where the process stops for most of us.
My husband has been practicing law in South Africa for almost 20 years and has his own firm. His sister lives in the UAE where many expats don’t have a will but are beginning to realise how important it is. He is also a registered Wills Drafter in the DIFC courts.
So how does WeWill work? We realise that very few of us have time to go and see someone who can draw up our Last Will and Testament, so we have eliminated that step by taking it online. But we want you to have full control of your own Last Will and Testament so we have taken it one step further…we have developed an App. Why is the App better? You can load all the information needed in the comfort of your own home. You can always access your Last Will and Testament, as the App stores it for you. Furthermore should your circumstances change, you can make changes and edit it anytime, anywhere. Quick and easy right?!
Seriously, no more excuses! Go and download the free App and follow the prompts.
What happens if a husband dies without a will in the UAE?
If a person dies interstate, or without a will Sharia law will be applied to any assets that are held in the UAE. This causes the most complications in the event of the husband’s death because his assets are frozen and will only be released upon the advice of the local courts.
