Everyone needs to be prepared and have their ‘affairs in order!’
It is essential to have Powers of Attorney in place to authorise trusted relatives to deal with your financial, personal and medical affairs in the event of an illness or accident rendering you unable to make these important decisions.
The same is true of the need to have a valid Will and Succession Plan in place to ensure your wishes for your estate are carried out in the event of unexpected death.
There may be important tax and superannuation issues you need to consider when making a Will and we can assist you with this.
We also apply for a Grant of Probate of a Will following death. The Grant of Probate is a document issued by the Supreme Court of Victoria authorizing your Executors to deal with your assets and liabilities and distribute the proceeds of your Estate among your beneficiaries.
Williams Hunt deals with these matters on a daily basis with compassion and experience.
