Wills & Estate Planning
Don’t leave your will & estate planning until it is too late
Estate Planning is often left by people until it is too late. It is a useful tool for you and your estate to provide certainty and save expense in the long term.
An estate planning lawyer can provide certainty and peace of mind. Planning for death is generally an issue that is neglected by many Australians. Around 40% of Australians die each year without a Will or any significant Estate Planning and many of the remainder die with wills that do not reflect their current needs.
There are legal issues that must be taken into account when you are considering your estate planning and financial plans and our estate planning lawyers are here to help. How you structure your will, the appointment of trustees, how your estate is distributed and the appointment of guardians for any children are all vital issues that should be addressed in your Will.
There may be circumstances where trusts should be established after your death or life interests created.
Our estate planning lawyers are able to advise you and assist you in the preparation of Wills and Estate Planning issues such as Powers of Attorney and Guardianship appointments. We can also discuss Advance Directives with you if you want to leave directions to your guardian should you become incapable of making a health or welfare decision.
You only have one chance to get your Will or Estate Planning right. Once you have passed away, the Will cannot be changed without the intervention of the High Court, the cost of which Will far out weigh the cost of seeing your solicitor. It is therefore important that you get it right the first time! Our commitment to our client, so please contact the Estate Planning Law Team during business hours on 1800 770 780
