DON'T GO WITHOUT A WILL AND ESTATE PLAN 

Preparing a Will and a Estate Plan is perhaps one of the most important steps you can take to take care of your loved ones once you go.

 

We can assist with preparing a will that reflects your wishes and that ensures that your beneficiaries are provided for as you intended. We can guide you through this process and advise you on all property and estate matters so that you can make informed decisions as to your wishes after death.

 

You certainly don’t have to wait until you are of retirement age to have a will. Certain things in life are inevitable and being prepared through a well drafted Will can ensure your loved ones are provided.

 

With a will you can ensure that:

  • your personal effects and assets are distributed according to your wishes

  • a person of your choice acts as the executor of your estate

  • your children are well cared for by nominating a person of trust to be their guardian.

 

REVIEW YOUR WILL

It is important that you review your will periodically or when your life circunstances change, for instance:

  • you get married or divorce

  • you have a child or there is a death in your family

  • your financial situation and assets change

 

We can also help you contest the validity of a will or assist you challenge a Will if you have the right to do so.
