Wills and Estates Lawyers
Wyatts will help you take the legal steps required to plan your estate and create a Will. Our estate lawyers will listen carefully to your situation and offer a tailored and personalised solution so that you can feel confident that you have protected your loved ones. Additionally, we can assist you in legally stating your wishes for your end-of-life care, both medically and financially. At Wyatts, we also specialise in assisting individuals to contest a Will or challenge the distribution of an estate.
Planning your Estate and Establishing a Will
A great sense of relief can arise from knowing that your estate is in order and that your property and assets will be distributed according to your wishes upon your death. Although it can be challenging to consider the end of life, it is reassuring to know that you have arranged your affairs to ease the lives of your loved ones and to minimise any disputes that might arise.
Estate planning allows you to specify how your assets will be distributed to your beneficiaries or parties after your passing. It also allows you to have:
- Confidence that your current and future lifestyle requirements will be met
- Organised and flexible governance of your personal matters, financial affairs, and assets in light of your current circumstances and your anticipated future
- A thorough plan for how your trust assets will be handled
- Confidence in your retirement plans
- Confidence that your financial and legal affairs will be managed via a Power of Attorney in the event that you are incapacitated
- Assurances that any end-of-life medical treatment will be enacted via a Power of Guardianship and/or an Advanced Health Care Directive
- Protection or creation of wealth for your beneficiaries after your death via a Will
Importantly, a well-planned estate can reduce the stress experienced by loved ones at an emotionally difficult time and can minimise the potential for disputed Wills – disputes about the distribution and handling of assets after your death.
Estate plans should be updated in response to the ending of a marriage, the forming of a new relationship, the addition of loved ones to your family, and changes in your health. Together, estate planning incorporates asset protection, tax implications, financial planning, planning for retirement, planning for end-of-life care, and the distribution of your estate after your death.
For the protection of your estate, these matters must be considered in light of relevant legal structures, and given the complexity of this area of law, it is worth seeking expert legal advice. In fact, estate planning often requires a multidisciplinary team of lawyers, financial planners, and accountants. Wyatts can support you in the legal aspect of estate planning, ensuring that you and your loved ones are protected by law.
When it comes to estate administration, it is safest to leave a will behind. Estate litigation can be time-consuming and avoided with the right preventions in place. A legal Will diminishes the whiplash of a contested deceased estate.
Our highly qualified and dedicated team offer every client a comprehensive, personalised and attentive service and successfully represent countless clients in estate litigation matters each year.
The Power of Guardianship allows someone to become your enduring guardian. This means that in the event that you did not have the capacity to make lifestyle, health and medical decisions, someone would be appointed with that power to make choices in your best interest. Your enduring guardian can only make decisions for you if you lack the capacity to do so yourself – meaning you are unable to understand the nature and consequences of the decision or communicate your decision in some way.
Wyatts can assist you in appointing an enduring guardian and ensuring your affairs are all in order ahead of time.
