Wills and Estates

Wills

At KNR Legal, we understand that drafting a Will can be confronting and overwhelming.  

In preparing your Will, there are a substantial number of variables you must consider.  Failing to take into consideration these variables may result in your intentions not being clearly and precisely documented which may result in problems at a later stage.

Wills must be approached on an individual basis taking into consideration your family, matrimonial and asset position. Did you know that there are Wills that include Trusts that allow for distribution of funds specifically for children, disabilities, education and businesses?  

There are a number of questions you should consider when preparing or updating your Will:-

  1. What is your matrimonial status? Have you been married before? Are you a nuclear family?
  2. What is your asset base?
  3. What is your debt?
  4. Do you have young children?
  5. Do you have business assets, Trusts, Self Managed Superannuation funds?
  6. Do you have any specific cultural desires?

These are just some of the questions our legal team will ask when preparing your Will.

Call Katie today to discuss your options.

Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Directives

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document designed to appoint a person you trust to attend to your affairs at a given time (for example if you loose capacity to make decisions.)

There are two primary types of Powers of Attorney:

1. General Powers of Attorney for a specific purpose.

2. Enduring Powers of Attorney.

In comparison, an Advanced Health Directive is a legal document designed to provide detailed information about your medical wishes during a life threatening event.

Call Katie today for further information.

Losing a loved one is difficult without the added pressure of administration and finalisation of their Estate.

At KNR Legal, we can assist in administration and finalisation of an estate from review of the Will, preparation of Probate/Letters of Administration, changes in asset ownership, call in assets and distribution.
