Wills in Melbourne

The creation of a legal will is crucial to estate planning for your personal and business assets. However, the establishment of any legal document can be a complex undertaking.

Wills require careful consideration and regular review as our family life changes and as we get older.

This is particularly the case when there is a blended family situation. You might also be in the position where you want to make sure your parents are looked after as they age, or you can organise your children’s inheritance while you are still able to.

To support you in this process, we offer the following services:

• Advising on and drafting wills

• Creation of testamentary trusts

• Advising clients on the effects of life changes, including marriage, divorce and blendedfamilies

• Beneficiary nomination, and guardianship of minors

• Nomination and assistance to executors

• Asset distribution, including properties, businesses, superannuation and family trusts

Do you need to write a will?

Everyone does. Are you a parent or have a blended family? With more individuals to consider, creating and updating your will becomes even more necessary. Read our blog here for more information and a case study on why you should write a will.

What is an executor of a will?

An executor of a will is the person you have hand-selected to carry out your wishes after you have passed away. It is the executor’s job to wrap up your financial, personal and legal affairs.
