It has to be said – you’re going to die one day and, one notable historical exception aside, you’re not coming back to life either. So it is important to prepare for when the inevitable happens, and ensure that your valuable assets go where you want them to, and not by some arbitrary formula decided by Parliament 100 years ago.
By seeing an experienced lawyer to help you prepare, you can minimise the risk of challenges to your estate and take comfort that even after your family’s grief does not give way to family conflict.
You can also look after yourself during your lifetime by allowing other trusted family members, friends or advisers to help look after your own affairs with an Enduring Power of Attorney and an Advance Care Directive.
Dorrian Legal can help you have peace of mind, as well as help you if you are looking after a loved one’s estate, or are caught in a family conflict about the estate of a dearly departed loved one.
