Wills are a crucial part of your personal and business assets and require careful planning and consideration. With blended families, children suffering from disabilities and life changes our team will provide advice and assistance in the preparation of your Will in determining who is responsible for your Estate (Executor) and who will receive your assets (Beneficiaries).

Drafting a Will is crucial in order to confirm that all your loved ones are addressed, and all your assets are dispersed in line with your intentions after your passing.

Making a Will can appear challenging, but our team can help guide you through the entire process to lessen the chance of someone disputing your Will. Often, a Will is challenged if a family member feels left out or insufficiently included. Other disputes can arise due to claims of lack of capacity, undue influence, or breach of trust.

Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)

This is a legal instrument whereby you assign a reliable individual (known as “the attorney”) to make personal, financial, legal, and property-related decisions for you, should you lose the mental capability to make such decisions.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is conferred upon an individual you trust to make suitable financial and personal judgments on your behalf.

Among the tasks an attorney can execute on your behalf are: bill payments, document signing, property transactions, and managing shares or bank accounts.

Medical Treatment Decision

Everyone has a right to make their own medical treatment decisions. However, if you are unable to make decisions either temporarily or permanently then you can choose a medical who can make medical decisions on your behalf. Appointing a person to make medical decisions for you can be very burdensome, however our team can guide and assist you as to whom and when you appoint a trusted person to make medical decisions on your behalf.

Advanced Care Directive

It is a legally valid document that grants you the authority to formulate clear plans regarding your future health, care, and end-of-life matters. This document chronicles your decisions and wishes about medical treatment, and it defines what medical treatment you consent to and refuse in emergency situations. You are advised to engage your doctor in the process of completing an Advance Care Directive document.
