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).

Creating a Will is very important to make sure that all your loved ones are taken care of and that all your assets are disbursed in accordance with your wishes upon your passing.

Although creating a Will can be intimidating, our team can navigate you through every step to decrease the chance of someone contesting your Will. Wills are usually disputed if a family member feels they were neglected or not sufficiently considered. Other sorts of disputes can emerge from perceived lack of capacity, undue influence, or violation of trust.

Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)

It is a legal document where you designate a trusted individual (referred to as “the attorney”) to make personal, monetary, legal, and property decisions on your behalf in the event that you lose the mental capacity to do so yourself.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is granted to a person whom you trust to make sound financial and personal decisions on your behalf.

A few of the roles an attorney can fulfill on your behalf are: settling your bills, signing papers, executing property transactions, and managing shares or bank accounts.

Medical Treatment Decision

Every individual is entitled to make their own medical treatment decisions. Nonetheless, should you become incapable of making decisions either temporarily or permanently, you have the option to nominate a person who can make medical decisions on your behalf. The task of appointing someone for this role can be demanding, but our team is ready to assist and guide you on who and when to appoint a trusted person for making medical decisions on your behalf.
