Why is having a will important?
We often hear about how important it is to have a will. It's a legal document that sets out who will receive your property, possessions, and other assets when you pass. It gives you the best chance to ensure that your property and assets are handled in the way you wish them to be. Without a will, your possessions are typically passed to your spouse; if you don't have a spouse, it'll pass to your children, your parents, and so forth, until a beneficiary is found. If you don't have eligible relatives, your estate will pass to the state. Legal and de facto spouses can complicate this process, too.
If you want your last wishes executed upon, MacKellars Lawyers can help prepare a simple will, or even prepare a testamentary trust. We can provide you with the best advice to avoid disputes and challenges to your will, so that you can express your wishes as clearly as possible. And, of course, we can help you professionally prepare the documents to protect your hard-earned property and assets.
MacKellars Lawyers can also handle probate applications, and administer the estate as an executor.
