    Estate Planning: Planning for the inevitable

    While we can plan for some things in life, other things can happen unexpectedly, whether it be physical and mental disability, progressive or degenerative illness or injury, death, individual and family disputes. An Estate Plan allows you to retain control of your assets while also enabling you to determine who will make decisions on your behalf should you not have the capacity in the future.

    Statutory Wills: Even a Will may not be final

    There are some circumstances that are out of your immediate control, even when you have made a Will.

A Statutory Will arises where the court authorises a Will or Codicil to be made altered or revoked for a person without testamentary capacity (Succession Act 2006 NSW). This means that when somebody becomes incapable of managing their own affairs, important legal steps must be taken to ensure that their care, welfare and administration of their financial affairs are managed in their best interests...
