Wills & Planning

It’s not pleasant to think about our own death, however, it is important to plan in advance and have a valid Will to ensure that assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes. A Will should be updated when there are significant changes in your life, such as getting married, divorced, entering into a defacto relationship and buying a property. Our lawyers will guide you through the important process of estate planning and preparing a valid Will to ensure that your assets and personal belongings are left to the beneficiaries you have nominated.


Probate & Deceased Estates

We understand that dealing with a deceased estate can be very difficult, however, our lawyers will sensitively guide you through the legal process.
