A Will is a legal document that records your wishes regarding who you intend to inherit what from your estate. There are two basic types of Will: a Single Will and a Mirror Will.
A Single Will is the perfect way to protect the estate of an individual. It names the people you want to benefit from your estate after you die and makes sure they get the money and items you wanted them to, rather than leaving it to legal courts to decide.
You can still write a Single Will if you have a partner. You might choose this option if your partner already has their own Will.
A Mirror Will is the perfect way to protect the estate of a couple. You and your partner are able to name the people you would like to benefit from your estate after your death, rather than leaving it to legal courts to decide.
You should choose this option if neither of you already has a Will or you want to replace your old Wills.

Sometimes, even if you are married, it is better to write a Single Will than a Mirror Will.
