Will & Estate Planning

Assets | Arrangements | Property

Having a plan for what happens to your assets is important for you and your family.

What is a Will?

Your Will is an important legal document outlining your wishes for your assets for when you pass away.

If you die without a will, you die intestate. This means you have no control over how your estate is distributed. Your estate will be distributed according to intestacy provisions in the Succession Act 2006 in New South Wales. If you die intestate, it can cause your family to have to incur costs by making an application to the Supreme Court to finalise your estate and results in avoidable distress for your family to resolve your financial affairs following your death.

Your Will details:
  • Who you want to be an executor

  • Who you want to recieve your assets

  • Any specific gifts you wish to make of possessions

  • Any religious or cultural arrangements for your funeral

  • Who you choose to nominate as a legal guardian for any children under 18 years

What is a Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney is a legal document which grants someone the power and authority to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf.
The appointment of an Attorney can be a General Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney which continues after a person may lose capacity to make legal decisions.
It is possible to revoke a Power of Attorney appointment if the person you have chosen to be your Attorney fails to act in your best interests or you wish to revoke it for some other reason.

What is an Enduring Guardian Appointment?

An Enduring Guardian appointment allows that nominated person to make health and lifestyle decisions for you once you may lose capacity to make those decisions for yourself.
These can include decisions about where you live and what type of health care you receive. The appointment can be revoked at any time while you are still deemed to have capacity to make legal decisions.
