Along with a will, there are three other separate free-standing documents you need to have to protect your family: two types of powers of attorney and a living will, also known as an advance care directive.
Drafting a will that divides assets equally sounds good, but if you have given more money to one child in your lifetime (such as help with university, a wedding or purchase of a house) it may be seen as unfair.
