No-one knows what tomorrow holds; the voice of wisdom tells us to plan for the worst and hope for the best.
If you’re an adult with assets in your name, then you probably need a Will. You may own your house, a car, shares or just some money in the bank with a bit of superannuation, whatever the case, whichever season of life you are in, if you have assets then you need a Will. Unfortunately, many of us are under a misconception that our loved ones will inherit our estate if we die without a Will; this is not necessarily the case.
In saying that, a will does more than just deal with your assets. In your Will you can specify your funeral preferences and nominate guardians for your children or pets to ensure that they are properly cared for when you’re no longer around.
At Varga Lawyers we understand that your personal and financial circumstances are unique; we don’t just copy a template Will for you to sign and send you on your merry way. We produce creative solutions tailored to your specific assets and family circumstances. As specialists in estate planning, this includes a review of your related structures such as family trusts, self-managed superannuation funds and companies. We then provide you with practical advice regarding transferring the management and control of these related structures to your loved ones by including specific directions in your Will.
If required, we can advise you on how to protect vulnerable beneficiaries, minimise the risk of your assets being attacked by creditors and maximise taxation benefits.
Our sound knowledge of estate planning, estate litigation, property law and family disputes enables us to provide you with comprehensive advice to enable you to avoid the risk of claims on your estate.
We also offer free storage of all your estate planning documents.
If you do not have a will or if it is time to change or update your will, call us to make an appointment with one of our specialists.
