Wills and Estate Planning
Having a Will ensures that your loved ones have a clear guide of how you would like your assets distributed. This also assists to alleviate any stress and unnecessary costs over the distribution of your assets.
If you die without a will also known as intestate there is no guarantee that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes.
Preparing your Will and other guardianship and living documents gives you the opportunity to name guardians for your children, establish a trust, or to donate to charities of your choosing.
It is important to keep you Will up to date. You should review your will every 3–5 years to ensure it still reflects your wishes. You may need to change your will if any of the following occurs:
- you get married
- you get divorced or separate from your partner
- you enter into a de facto relationship
- your children or grandchildren are born
- your executor or beneficiary dies
- there is a change in your financial circumstances.
