Wills & Estates

Getting your affairs in order or sorting out an estate can be overwhelming.  talk to us about some assistance with these types of matters.

Estate Planning

An essential part of being an adult is getting a Will done.  But what is a will?  In short, it is a document that outlines where you want all your worldly possessions to go (in the event of your death); and, if necessary, making provisions for people that are currently dependant on you.  

As part of your estate planning considerations, you may also consider obtaining Powers of Attorney (appointing another person to make decisions for you under certain circumstances, eg. if you lose the capacity to make decisions or you cannot be physically present to sign a contract); and/or, an Advanced Health Directive (what happens if in certain health related situations, such as being placed on life support).  We can also assist with these types of documents.

Estate Administration

Losing a loved one can be one of the toughest things you may endure in life.  Equally tough is the amount of paperwork that can be involved with looking after all the property, bank accounts, superannuation and various other things that a person may leave behind after their passing.

We can help with some of this burden by assisting you with applying for Probate or Letters of Administration.

Estate Disputes

Have you been left out of a Will?
Did you not receive what you thought you were entitled to under a Will? 

The law around Will disputes is complex.  No two cases are the same and every family's circumstances are unique.  If you wish to dispute a Will, there are strict time limits to enforcing your rights so please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.

We can assist you by representing you in contesting, defending or challenging a Will.
