How can our Wills and Estate Lawyers help you?

A Will and estate lawyer can provide certainty and peace of mind. Understandably, 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 expert Will and estate lawyers in Sydney are here to help. How you structure your Will, the appointment of trustees and Will executor, 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 testamentary trusts should be established after your death or life interests created.

Our Will and estate lawyers are able to advise and assist you in the preparation of Wills and estate planning issues, such as Power of Attorneys and Guardianship appointments. We can also discuss Advance Care 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 Supreme Court. Whatsmore, the legal fees associated with contesting a Will far outweigh the cost of seeing your solicitor early on. It is therefore important that you get it right the first time.Contact our Will and estate Lawyers at Owen Hodge today for a cost-effective solution to your estate planning. We also have experienced Power of Attorney lawyers and can assist with any other matters regarding deceased estates, grant of probate and estate law.
