Your will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. It is not something to put off doing, and not something you can do once, then forget.
When to Review your Will
Changes in your financial circumstances, and relationships, can impact upon what your will should say, and of course, if you, or your children have another child, your will should be reviewed. It may not need changing, but significant life events should always be followed by a review of your will.
More Complex Issues to Consider
Wills are, of course, your last step in ensuring that the property you have worked a lifetime to accumulate passes to your family and friends in accordance with your wishes. Sometimes, however, this simple desire is not at all simple to achieve.
When your will is prepared, these issues need to be considered. All of the above problems arise in ordinary families. All can be resolved – provided that they are properly considered, and steps taken when your will is prepared. Note that some problems also require changes to other documents – such as existing trust deeds, or Binding Death Benefit Beneficiary Nominations (Superannuation) as well as provisions within the will itself.
Without proper legal advice, there are too many opportunities for you to make a mistake that will have a catastrophic effect upon your family after you die.
When you consult us about your wills, we review these issues with you. We raise with you the issues we see arising from your existing structures, and also let you know how those issues can be resolved. You may find that a simple will will adequately meet your needs. Or, you may discover that a comprehensive and strategic review is in order, which, in addition to providing for your family and friends on your death, can have far reaching beneficial effects upon your current financial position.
