News & Updates

Our blogs keep you up to date with legal issues that may affect you and your family, along with the latest developments from April King.

Family Support Membership

For decades, we have dedicated ourselves to supporting families through the complex legal procedures that arise after the loss of a loved one. Recognising the profound challenges of these circumstances, we have introduced our Family Support Membership, exclusive to clients of April King. This membership goes beyond providing peace of mind—it is an essential service designed to offer support during the most trying and emotionally challenging moments.

Dispelling Misconceptions

It’s a common misconception that having a Will negates the need for Probate. However, the reality is far more complex. The process involves intricate dealings with the Probate Registry, HMRC, and managing property titles and potential trusts. Our Family Support Membership provides crucial guidance and support to executors, who are often your closest family members who might unexpectedly find themselves navigating sudden legal and personal financial liability.

More Than a Support Service

Other benefits available to member clients include:

  • A dedicated freephone helpline for executors.
  • A 10% reduction on future amendments to Wills or Power of Attorney for member clients.
  • Up to two hours of tailored legal advice for your executors for each client/estate following a bereavement
  • Exclusive updates and news for members to keep you abreast of any relevant developments.

When managing an estate, the involvement of various family members—be it executors, stepchildren, or distant relatives—can sometimes lead to misunderstandings, fall outs or even serious disputes. In these moments, it’s essential to handle each step with care and expert advice.

Many of us hope that our families will remain united in times of loss, believing firmly in the notion that “our family won’t argue.” However, it’s often during these emotional times that we see how strong these bonds truly are. By choosing to join our Family Support Membership, you’re not just planning for the future; you’re ensuring that we are there in your corner when your loved ones may need it most.

The Importance of Membership

In the face of loss, it’s crucial to have support systems in place that ensure the smooth handling of your estate and aid your loved ones in a time of need. The Family Support Membership not only assists in legal matters but also helps in preventing family disputes and ensuring that your final wishes are respected and carried out with minimal stress on your family.
