How can Wills and Estates Lawyers Help?

It may be tempting to write your own Will, either from a template downloaded from the internet or a Will Kit. However, this can be problematic as the laws in each jurisdiction are different and strict as to what constitutes a valid Will, meaning your do-it-yourself Will may not achieve your wishes or cause difficulties for the Court to approve.

Contact Stephens & Tozer to discuss your Will, whether you have one already or require an entirely new Will.

We are only too pleased to assist you with recording your testamentary wishes and ensure that what you want done after your passing is safe and assured.

Feel free to call us on 07 30340 3888, and I, along with estate lawyers from Stephens & Tozer Solicitors, will be ready to speak with you about your Will or any other estate planning matters.

Why we all need a Valid Will?

Firstly, what happens if you die without a Will?

Some people believe that your belongings will automatically go to the government if you die without a Will. This notion is simply incorrect. However, if you do die without a Will, your belongings are distributed per the intestacy laws. These laws are complicated and may not reflect your wishes. It also increases the risk of litigation, which can be costly to your estate.

Having a Will provides certainty as to who benefits from your estate. It also gives you assurance about who is appointed to handle your affairs after you pass away. Wills can also deal with funeral wishes and testamentary guardians for minor children. In more recent times, Wills have begun to include what shall become of your digital assets and social media accounts.

Nobody enjoys contemplating their mortality, and you may be saying, “But I’m healthy and still young”. However, situations such as accidents or illnesses may occur without notice, and you could be left incapable of making a Will.

I Already Have a Will

Will lawyers from Brisbane can review your existing Will to adjust for certain circumstances. Some examples of life events that should trigger a review of your Will are:

  • Marriage, Civil Union or de Facto Relationship
  • Separation or Divorce
  • The Passing of a Beneficiary, an Executor or Someone Else Contemplated in your Will
  • Change of your Assets or Personal Circumstances
  • Changes to your Testamentary Wishes

Please feel free to get in touch with your deceased estate lawyers from Brisbane for any enquiry you might have, including the cost of making a will with a solicitor in Brisbane. We look forward to serving your interests to the best of our abilities.
