Wills & Estates

A Will is a legal document that clearly sets out your wishes for the distribution of your assets after your death. The legislation governing Wills imposes certain formalities with regard the form a Will must take.

Should you die without a Will (intestate) your estate may be divided according to a legislative formula which may not reflect your wishes and which may cause unnecessary hardship, cost and delay for your family. It is particularly important to update your Will after marriage, divorce or if you are living in a de facto relationship or have children and/or grandchildren living with you who are also dependent upon you for support. Even if you have a Will, legislation exists that may impact significantly on your testamentary freedom. Challenges to your Will can mean that others, eligible persons, can also make a claim to your estate if not adequately provided for in the Will. Contesting Will in the Supreme Court can be very costly and has the potential to decimate the Estate. We have developed considerable experience in drafting Wills that will assist in avoiding costly disputes.
