Thinking about the future
Henry and Sam had been in a relationship for nearly a decade when they decided to expand their little family.
However, it took a dinner party with friends who told them about a horror-accident where both parents died, leaving a ten-year-old and toddler orphaned to get the duo thinking about their own plans. They had more conversations with each other, did some research and eventually got in touch with Perpetual Guardian to set up their Wills.
"Since we've had Hallie, she's been our number one priority and the thought of her being alone or there being no certainty of what happens to her should we both die...it just didn't sit right with us," says Henry.
They initially looked at doing their Wills online via Perpetual Guardian's sister company Footprint, but opted for the face-to-face option to get expert guidance.
"Looking back, I would've pushed for both of us to get our Wills done much sooner. You really never know what will happen, and getting organised took a big weight off our shoulders."
