Advice for new parents

Legal advice with a difference…

“There is nothing else that can change your life the same way that a new baby can. You will experience a love that you never experienced before and also a sense of responsibility that surpasses anything else. Nothing will compare to your new little bundle of joy.”

MSP Services

Becoming a parent is one of the most exciting experiences in life, if not a little overwhelming! There is a wealth of advice from friends and family to books, magazines and programmes and while we cannot help you with bottle routines or nappy changes, we can help with future planning for your new arrival.

One of the main considerations we discuss with new parents is the need to implement a Will. Ensuring your children are properly provided for in the event of your death is an important consideration, even though it isn’t one we like to think about.

We work with you to develop a Will which covers all your needs including:

  • Appointing guardians
  • Stipulations regarding your child’s age at time of inheritance
  • Appointing trustees for financial considerations
  • What items or gifts are left for your child and when they receive them

Our Private Client Team is highly experienced in this area and will happily guide you through this process. Please give us a call on 01429 232204 to discuss your family’s needs or email: or

"We as a family have used MSP for a range of things from registering a property, buying and selling a house , Power of Attorney and doing a Will We have dealt with Katie who is fabulous and nothing is ever too much trouble. She is very professional, friendly and is very happy to answer any questions you may have. We have also dealt with Fiona when we found out that our house had never been registered with the land registry. Fiona was very helpful and very prompt in keeping us updated with the progress of the registration. Everyone who we have dealt with at MSP legal have been great and I would very much recommend them. Thanks for everything"
