ESTATE PLANNING & ADMINISTRATION

The power to freely dispose of your assets by Will is an important right. By legally documenting your estate plan and periodically updating it when significant life events occur, i.e. marriage, children, finance, you protect this right, effectively creating an insurance policy that ensures your assets will be dealt with in a way that you would want them to be when you are no longer able to do it for yourself.

Estate Planning  Administration

One out of every ten Australians suffers from the loss of testamentary capacity after the age of 65. The loss of testamentary capacity means that you are no longer able to make a Will or alter your Will to deal with changes in your circumstances since it was made. Without a current Will, your assets may not be dealt with in a way that you would want them to be.

Our motto? Always plan ahead.

We can assist you develop a plan in the following areas:

  • Personal and Business Succession Planning
  • Wills and Powers of Attorney
  • Grants of Probate and Estate Administration
  • Testamentary capacity issues
  • Applications to the Supreme Court for revisions of or new Wills for people who have lost testamentary capacity.
