WILLS & ESTATE PLANNING
Not many people create a will, and even fewer keep it updated or plan their estate. These are concerns that are mostly left until it’s too late, which then creates all sorts of problems once you pass away, such as your will being contested, infighting between your loved ones, assets sold contrary to your wishes, taxes eating up all of the funds, and a host of other problems. If all you did was download a generic will kit and filled that out – even though it doesn’t take into account your specific circumstance – it would still be better than doing nothing at all, which is unfortunately what most people do.
At Chedid Storey Legal, we have regrettably seen, too many times, the issues that no will or an out of date will cause. We then are called in to get involved in contested wills and even litigation between family members. Though filling out a generic will kit is a good first step, we suggest going further and engaging a qualified and experienced wills and estate planning lawyer who can help ensure that your wishes are set out properly. This will mitigate the risk of future problems between family members and also ensure that your wishes are carried out.
We value the importance of maintaining family relationships and so we are committed to taking you through all the important steps in getting your affairs in order and giving practical legal solutions.
The cost to create a will is $390 for a single person and $600 for a couple. To create an Appointment of Enduring Guardian or Power of Attorney is $250 per person. Prices are excluding GST. Get in touch with our team for package options.
