Will Preparation

Having your will prepared by a professional offers you better peace of mind. Wills can be highly complex legal documents, the more assets, different avenues of income, or the more complex your wishes are, the more likely you are to need a lawyer’s assistance in the preparation.

Preparing your will can be unpleasant and overwhelming in some cases too. You may find it beneficial to have an impartial party to assist and consult with you. Our will lawyers can help you work through all the different considerations and draft your will for you. It will be important to review and update your will as your lifestyle changes, as well as the lifestyles of your loved ones.

Wills and Estates

Our lawyers are highly experienced in wills, but we also have comprehensive knowledge in estates, estate administration, and estate planning. We’ll work with you to plan and draft your estate and documents. Your estate planning will cover items such as who will execute your final wishes (including your funeral and administration of your estate) and who will be your enduring power of attorney. You may have to review and consider trust accounts and companies or create an advanced health directive as part of your estate plan. We can also hold wills, power of attorney, and advanced health directive documents in safe custody.

Will Executors & Estate Administration

If you’ve been appointed as an executor of a loved one’s estate, you’ll have an obligation to carry out a number of tasks. Firstly, you may need to obtain a Grant of Probate from the Supreme Court of Queensland. You may need to provide full inventory of your loved one’s estate and an account of the administration of the estate. You will be responsible for outstanding debts and administration as well.

You may have to lodge any outstanding tax returns, use part of the estate to pay off remaining debts, and prepare any relevant financial statements on their behalf. It may also be necessary for you to plan and organise the funeral. Many of the will executors’ responsibilities can be complex and time consuming. Our will and estate lawyers can support you through this process.

Will Disputes

Contesting a will can be a complex process. Our will and estate lawyers are experienced across will disputes and can work with you to navigate this process. We’ll consult with you, assess whether your proposed claim is viable, and then work with you to both contest the will and negotiate a settlement.

According to Queensland laws, you can contest a will if the deceased:
• Did not have the capacity to make a will when it was signed
• Made the will under the influence of others
• Or, if a claimant believes they’re entitled to more of the deceased’s estate than was received.

Common Questions about Wills

Not technically. It isn’t necessary for a lawyer to write a will to make it legal. However, preparing your will without the help of a lawyer can be tricky, particularly if your will will involve a lot of considerations. The more assets and different considerations you might have, the more difficult it will be. To make your final wishes as clear as possible, without being subject to interpretation, it’s best to draft your will with a lawyer.

These are the main items you will need to consider before writing your will:

  • Any dependent children
  • Pets
  • Your assets
  • Important or cherished items
  • Who will be your executor (the person who carries out your wishes)
  • Who will be the beneficiaries
  • Your funeral instructions
  • Will you need an enduring power of attorney

The Supreme Court of Queensland.

Wills and estates are two terms that are often used interchangeably. However, they don’t mean the same thing. While wills and estates do have many similarities, your will is just one part of your estate and planning. Your will will outline your final wishes, like who will take on your property, your assets, and who will care for your children. Estate planning broadens this to incorporate items such as your power of attorney, your health directive, and other items that might need to be factored in.
