Making a Will is not only for the wealthy or elderly. If you have a home, superannuation or other assets, then it’s important that you protect both your family and your life’s work upon your passing.
Your life can change in a moment. Unfortunately, accidents and illnesses may strike without warning. Don’t make your loved ones suffer more, ensure that you have the proper legal documents in place.
Protect yourself, your assets, and your family’s future. If you die without a Will your family must submit to the court’s decision on how your estate is divided and distributed. That means even if you tell your child you want them to have your wedding band, they may not receive it. It could be sold to pay off outstanding debts.
Your Will has the potential to go far beyond simply listing out which assets you want to leave to which family members.
You can also include a Power of Attorney to protect your interests if you no longer have mental capacity.
An Enduring Guardianship allows you to appoint someone to protect your lifestyle and health decisions.
You may find yourself contesting a Will. This can be a stressful time, a decision that needs a great deal of council before moving forward.
