Wills and Family Law
Making a Will is probably one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. By making a Will you ensure that your loved ones will be clear on your wishes after your death and be provided for financially.
We can advise you in relation to the tax and legal implications of making a will. We act for executors in taking out the representation such as Probate and Administration to Administer the Estate (divide a person’s assets / items they own on their death)
We also help people make An Enduring Power of Attorney which is a legal document that comes into force when you have lost the mental capacity to deal with your affairs. The President of the High Court empowers a trusted relative(s) or friend(s) that you have appointed under your Enduring Power of Attorney to administer and look after your affairs. By planning in advance, you retain control over who will look after your affairs if you do lose your mental capacity.
A simple Power of Attorney grants the power to another person to look after a particular transaction, event or property.
