Wills and Estates
Making a Will can give you peace of mind. If you already have a Will, then it is important to review it periodically as people’s circumstances can change with time. On the other hand, if you have concerns that you have been unjustly overlooked in a family member’s Will or adequate provision has not been made for you or your children, then it is important to know where you stand in terms of your legal rights and entitlements. We can help you with:
Making a Will, Power of Attorney or Enduring Guardianship
Probate and Letters of Administration
Contesting a Will
Making a Family Provision claim
