Wills and Estate Planning
Planning for the future may often feel daunting but is something we all need to be prepared for.
Proper planning for the future involves a thorough consideration of your personal and financial circumstances and deciding which loved ones you would like to leave your personal assets to.
At Arida Lawyers we provide expert advice on preparing Wills, appointing an enduring guardian, appointing a power of attorney and other important legal measures in order to protect your estate.
We make the process seamless by carefully walking you through your future planning succession strategies.
Our team can also assist you with resolving any estate disputes, contesting a will and protecting your rights in estate administration.
We will ensure that:
You understand every possible outcome when you forgo your financial and personal decision making to a loved one.
You include (and exclude) the correct vocabulary that ensures your wishes are clear and will be followed in your absence without question.
There is no ambiguity in the wording in your Will that your family or close relatives can successfully challenge at Court.
All the formalities for the preparation of your Will are completed to ensure your Will can be upheld in court.
We help break down the technicalities that go into estate planning and make the process simple and seamless. Preparing a will is a sensitive process and we will handle your matter with due diligence and the utmost discretion.
Purpose of a Will
A Will is a legal document that outlines your instructions on:
Which loved ones you want to inherit your estate.
Care for your children.
The appointed executor of your estate when you pass away.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives a person or trustee organisation the legal authority to manage your assets and make financial and legal decisions on your behalf. These can be enduring (ongoing) or general (for a specified period of time) whilst you lack capacity to make important financial or legal decisions.
An Enduring Guardian is the person you legally appoint to make decisions about your health and overall lifestyle in the event you lack capacity to make these decisions for yourself.
