PREPARING A WILL
Our lawyers understand the stress and uncertainty that can occur when a loved one passes. The additional pain that the lack of a well-considered Will can bring to a family can be avoided. Estate disputes can be costly and can lead to broken relationships.
An important thing to be aware of is that Wills and Estates are closely linked. Most estate disputes can be avoided before the death of the testator when the testator makes his or her Will. A well drafted and well considered Will, done early, is the best way to minimise estate disputes later.
Question: “When should you consider having a Will made?”
Answer: “When there is a life changing event that makes you think you should have a Will.”
The following events have been identified as triggers.
- Getting married
- Having children
- Setting up a business
- Serious and potentially terminal illness
