Wills And Estates Lawyers

A WILL is one of the most important document you will prepare in your life which states how you want your property distributed after you die.

Making a Will allows you to choose what happens to your assets after you die. It also allows you to nominate an Executor, who is the person responsible for making sure your wishes are met as opposed to leaving that responsibility to the courts.

DO YOU NEED A WILL?

A WILL is one of the most important document you will prepare in your life which states how you want your property distributed after you die. A person who makes a WILL is called a “testator” or a “testatrix”. Making a Will allows you to choose what happens to your assets after you die. It also allows you to nominate an Executor, who is the person responsible for making sure your wishes are met as opposed to leaving that responsibility to the courts. It is important to understand what can be contained in your Will.

Taking the time to prepare a WILL shows you are responsible, taking control of your life and caring for your family and loved ones.

DISADVANTAGES OF NOT HAVING A WILL

If you die without a will, you are said to have died intestate. Intestate means you die without a Will and you have no say on who gets your estate. Instead of your estate passing according to your wishes, your estate will now be divided according to the laws of Queensland.

How your assets are distributed under the intestacy rules are mainly dependent upon your marital status and if you have children. There are a number of situations where you could be putting your loved ones into a difficult situation.

DISADVANTAGES OF NOT HAVING A WILL

  1. You have no control over the distribution of your estate;
  2. There may be a forced sale of the family home or car to cover other beneficiaries’ share of the estate;
  3. No guardian appointed for your children;
  4. Your children or grandchildren may not receive the financial protection you would have desired;
  5. Partners, stepchildren, friends and favourite charities may miss out;
  6. Incapacitated members of your family and their own assets may be put at risk; and
  7.  Your estate may be administered by someone you would not appoint.
