Frequently asked questions

You don’t need to wait till you’re nearing retirement to begin planning a will or your estate. There are also some key life milestones that can trigger you to either create or review your will, these include:

  • Buying a house
  • Getting married/separated
  • Setting up a business
  • Having kids
  • Creating a family trust or SMSF

The cost of an estate plan depends on your situation and the complexity of your estate/assets. Any of the following could potentially impact the cost:

  • If you have had more than one marriage
  • You own a business
  • You have specific requests

It’s important for a number of reasons, such as:

  • It ensures your assets go to the intended beneficiaries
  • It can reduce the likelihood of family disagreements after you are gone
  • It ensures your children are protected and cared for in a way you approve of
