Wills

A Will is a legal document that states how your assets are to be divided upon your death. Unless a Will is made, the manner in which your estate is disposed of will be determined by the rules of intestacy. In many instances, the fact that a Will has been made can result in considerable savings in the administration of the estate. 

Our solicitors are able to provide legal advice in drafting your Will including; 

  • Appointment of executors 
  • Testamentary Trusts
  • Guardianship Arrangements
  • Distribution of Assets

Power of Attorney

You may not always be able to make decisions when you need to. You might be too ill to make choices about your medical treatment, or you could suffer a disability that prevents you from communicating your wishes to others. 

A Power of Attorney is a formal document giving another person authority to make personal and/or financial decisions on your behalf.

Personal decisions relate to your care and welfare including health care. For example, deciding where and with who you live or consenting to medical treatment.

Financial decisions relate to the management of your finances. For example, paying your bills, selling your home, using your income to pay for your needs. 

If you do not have a Power of Attorney then an application to manage your financial affairs will need to be made to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The result of a hearing may be that the Public Trustee is appointed or a member of your family.

The advantage of appointing an attorney is that you will have chosen someone who you would like to make decisions on your behalf.
