Wills

A Will is a document that states how you would like your assets to be distributed when you die, and the person or organisation you would like to be responsible for carrying out your wishes.


If a person dies without leaving a will, the estate is then allocated in accordance with a government scheme. If there is a prepared and signed will in place at a person's death, the estate will be passed on to the chosen beneficiaries according to the deceased's wishes.

Powers Of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is as important as making a Will. Appointing an attorney gives them the legal authority to look after your financial affairs such as bank accounts, real estate, money and shares on your behalf. It does not allow your attorney to make personal, including medical decisions.


Appointments of Enduring Guardians

An Enduring Guardian can make decisions for you in areas such as accommodation, health and services, if you lose the capacity to make your own decisions at some time in the future. Your Enduring Guardian takes effect only if you lose the capacity to make your own major personal decisions.
