At Mountains Lawyers, we have Perth estate planning lawyers who will assist you with various legal matters including drafting your simple or complex will, estates and appointing Power of Attorney.
Our lawyers are experienced in structuring clients’ affairs and are able to prepare and help protect yours during your lifetime and after your death in accordance with your specific needs and wishes.
Simple wills that take care of your loved ones
Some people mistakenly believe that estate planning is only for people who are wealthy. Did you know that when you do not have a will, your assets will be dealt with in accordance with the state law? This means if you have incapacitated children, minor children and beloved family pets, the state will make the decision on your behalf. The state will select a care provider if you did not leave a document that specifies a preferred guardian. Additionally, if you do not have a will, your business could be placed into the wrong hands.
Complex wills secured for peace of mind
When you have a well-written will, you will have peace of mind knowing that you will be protecting yourself and your loved ones before and after your death. Perhaps your will is complex and involves vast assets. Maybe it also requires the appointment of powers of attorney to give authority to someone close to you who is capable of your handling affairs, including your finances and your medical decisions should you become unable to handle those matters for yourself. This is particularly important if you are unmarried, widowed or have no other living relatives.
Establishing a will in Perth
If due care is not exercised a homemade will may lead to unintended consequences. Whilst there are many do-it-yourself will kits available, they are unprofessional and do not take into consideration the additional costs of probating or the possibility of other parties contesting the will. As you plan for the future, the first priority should be to write a will which can serve many purposes including to:
- appoint guardians for your children
- protect your money to keep more for your heirs
- protect your business
- transfer assets to your loved ones
- transfer gifts to nominated charities
Mountains Lawyers will work with you to ensure your simple will or complex will is properly drafted for the ease of will execution after your death. Your estate planning lawyer also guides you through the various aspects of estate planning.
