Wills & Estates Lawyers Parramatta
Wills and Estate Planning
Too often people leave their estate planning until it is too late. Having your estate administration prepared is a useful formality that will provide certainty and save you on certain expenses in the long term.
We offer a range of services from simple Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Enduring Guardianships to more complex estate probate applications.
We understand that succession planning is not just about making a Will. It is about ensuring that the right assets end up with the right people at the appropriate time. Estates can be complex and every estate is different.
There can be disputes which arise given the varied and competing interests of the family members.
We assist with:
- Administration of your estate
- Defending or making claims upon an estate
- Keeping safe custody of your Will
- Preparing Powers of Attorney
- Preparing Enduring Guardianship appointments
- Setting up various trusts
Estates are essential in ensuring peace of mind particularly given life circumstances changing whether that be family or financial.
We are experienced at ensuring that despite unique family structures, we can achieve the desired outcome for our clients.
We are always conscious of minimising the risk for potential conflict and competing interests and attempt to ensure adequate safeguards are in place. A Wills and estate lawyer can ultimately provide you with certainty and peace of mind.
Probate is the legal process where a Will is “proved” to be a valid and true last testament of the deceased. It occurs before an executor can administer a person’s estate and distribute it to the beneficiaries. In order to apply for probate, you need an experienced probate lawyer or trustee company.
If there is no Will then the estate will have to be distributed in accordance with the applicable laws.
We are mindful to be as efficient as possible and cost effective in estate administration. We appreciate that our clients are grieving throughout the administration process and we strive to be sensitive to these issues.
