What Can Estate Planning Lawyers Do For You?

  1. Will planning.

    A Will is a legal document that helps to distribute your assets and wealth after you pass away. One of the primary purposes of a Will is to appoint an executor who assumes control of your estate. In addition, a Will allows you to nominate your beneficiaries, the people who benefit from your estate. On top of that, it can also include terms on funeral preferences and guardianship of children.

    It is imperative to take steps to formalise your Will while you can, given that the transaction takes place after you have gone. As daunting as this may sound, a Wills Lawyer is qualified to hold your hand through every step of the process. With their help, you can decrease the likelihood of any disputes occurring over your Will.

  2. Power of attorney

    Giving someone Power of Attorney enables them to act on your behalf legally. Depending on your circumstances, they can make decisions for you surrounding legal, financial, medical, or personal matters. Given what a big responsibility assuming Power of Attorney is, it is important that you choose someone who only has your best interests at heart.

    A Power of Attorney lawyer will help you take the emotion out of your decision with expert advice on who to nominate and the level of control to give them.

  3. What is a Testamentary Trust?

    A Testamentary Trust is created by your Will to enable greater control over the distribution of assets to beneficiaries. It is up to you to appoint a trustee who will manage the assets in the trust. One of the main benefits of a Testamentary Trust is that it gives you the power to protect assets that are a part of your Will, such as investments or property.

    A Testamentary Trust also allows you to utilise tax advantages, like reducing the tax paid by beneficiaries from income earned from inheritance. These benefits cement a Testamentary Trust’s status as a powerful estate planning tool.
