As professionals trained in the ‘straight-jacket’ field of bio- medicine, it is psychiatrists who are most likely to reject that you have rationally ended your life. Indeed most will object to the concept of rational suicide. As expert witnesses - even if they have never met you - psychiatrists have the power to make your suicide seem the action of a mentally ill person. Planning head by undertaking a few simple steps can minimise the chance of this occurring in court.
Ask your doctor to be a witness for your will. In addition, ask them to document in their medical notes your state of health and state of mind at the time you make your will.
Ask your family members to write a brief statement of your mental wellness at the time you suicided. Courts will generally prefer evidence from those who knew you rather than consulting psychiatrists who never met you.
Give your lawyer a one-page explanation of why you are dividing your assets up in this way - thereby providing extra evidence that you knew exactly what you are doing.
