Estate Planning in Northern Beaches, New South Wales
Planning your estate is probably the last thing you want to think about.
But by leaving the distribution of assets up to the courts, the outcome could leave your family and beneficiaries at a disadvantage.
Succession planning is essential to distributing your assets fairly while protecting your estate from third-party claims and tax implications. This involves more than just writing a Will – it encompasses a range of factors such as:
- Writing a Will that satisfies all your personal wishes
- Appointing an Executor and outlining their responsibilities
- Evaluating your assets, business interests and other financial obligations
- Choosing a Power of Attorney and/or Guardian you can trust
- Reducing your tax liabilities

Appointing an Executor
An executor is someone you choose to distribute your assets and carry out your personal wishes after you pass away. Being an executor is an honourable but time consuming role, so you must choose a person who is reliable and cares about your personal interests.
A Bridge Legal estate planning lawyer can help you make this choice easy.
By understanding the duties of the executor and how it relates to your circumstances, you can feel confident knowing you’ve chosen the right person to manage your affairs after you’re gone.
Power of Attorney
During the course of your life, there may come a time where you lose the capacity to make decisions on your own. Whether due to a personal injury or mental incapacity, you need someone who can take your place to make certain legal, financial and medical decisions on your behalf.
Bridge Legal can help you plan ahead while you’re still healthy and aware. With our guidance, you can personalise the extent of power they have over your legal, financial, medical, and lifestyle matters.
Plus, you can specify other factors such as cancellation terms and changes in circumstances.
