Estate Planning – Will Writing
A Will is one of the most important documents to have in your estate plan. Without one, the Public Trustee of Queensland may be called upon to administer your estate, charging your estate large fees and distributing in accordance with a set rule within the Succession Act which may not reflect your personal wishes.
Even if your financial needs are simple, it is important to have a valid and up-to-date Will, so you can be confident your family and the people who are dependent on you get the support they need once you are gone. You may think, “I am 25, I do not own any property”, however, most people have a Super fund which can contain large assets in the event of early death. These assets need to be dealt with and the distribution of these assets have different consequences depending on your actions or non-actions prior to your death.
Whether you want to write or update a Will, our estate planning Gold Coast lawyers will be sure to express your wishes in simple terms that are legally binding. At Bridge legal, we take the time to understand your financial status and come up with a tax-effective strategy that meets your needs.
