To ensure that your estate is distributed according to your wishes it is important to prepare a will. If you don’t have a will the courts will usually decide who should deal with your estate (normally the next of kin), but the process is more complex and stressful than if you had a will in place.
Our lawyers can advise you on the appropriate structure of your will – taking into consideration tax and other financial issues. For example, do you need just a simple will or a testamentary trust?
Grant of Probate is the first step in dealing with the estate of deceased person. The stress and complexities of winding up the estate and affairs of the deceased person can often overshadow the trauma of losing a loved one.
Preparation and planning is the key to a smooth transition for all concerned. We are compassionate and experienced in providing professional legal advice and guiding those concerned through the difficult times.
