A recent survey by finder.com.au found that 53% of West Australians surveyed did not have a will. The study also found that one in seven people believed that a will was only necessary for people who have a large estate.
A WILL IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST WHO GETS YOUR ASSETS WHEN YOU DIE
As estate planning and deceased estate lawyers we too often encounter tragic circumstances where people die unexpectedly (often quite young) without leaving a will. We all like to think we are bulletproof but from our experience everyone over the age of 18 should consider making a will.
Yet a recent survey by finder.com.au found that 53% of West Australians surveyed did not have a will. The study also found that one in seven people believed that a will was only necessary for people who have a large estate.
We agree that the larger and more complex your financial affairs (or personal affairs – blended families; estranged children; warring siblings just to name some examples) the more likely you will need estate planning advice from experienced estate planning lawyers. But even if your only asset is your superannuation you should seek advice from an estate planning law firm regarding your superannuation death benefits.
Our experienced estate planning lawyers take the time to get an overview of your family structure, your assets and liabilities and your personal testamentary wishes to tailor their advice on the types of wills and other testamentary strategies available to best achieve your objectives whilst also considering any taxation consequences for your beneficiaries and produce simple plain English legal documents that take care of you, your estate and your loved ones.
HOSPITAL OR BEDSIDE WILLS AND HOME VISITS
Yes, we can arrange to travel to hospitals and homes in the local Rockingham and surrounding areas for those circumstances where there may be some urgency and the will maker is not able to come to our office.
