The importance of Wills in handling your personal and business assets cannot be overstated; they necessitate thoughtful planning and consideration. Our team stands ready to offer guidance and support in drafting your Will, identifying who will be accountable for your Estate (Executor), and who will inherit your assets (Beneficiaries), especially in cases involving blended families, children with disabilities, and significant life changes.

The formulation of a Will is significant to guarantee that all your loved ones are considered, and your assets are allocated as per your wishes when you pass away.

While making a Will can be intimidating, our team can guide you through every step to reduce the risk of someone challenging your Will. A Will is normally challenged if a family member was left out of the Will or were not left enough. Other types of claims can also arise from lack of capacity, undue influence, and breach of trust.

Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)

This legal document enables you to nominate a trustworthy person (named as “the attorney”) to handle your personal, financial, legal, and property matters if you lose the mental capacity to manage them yourself.

You assign an Enduring Power of Attorney to a trusted person to make appropriate financial and personal decisions for you.

Some of the functions an attorney can carry out for you include: paying your bills, endorsing documents, engaging in property transactions, and managing shares and 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.

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.
