At Eleven Legal Pty Ltd, we can assist you in preparing a will, and we have packages available depending on your circumstances. Our fixed fees can be found here. The process is so much simpler than you might expect, and you do not need to go through all your paperwork to make a will. We will even come to you, even out of hours, to make things easier.
When people prepare wills, we also recommend two other documents – powers of attorney and enduring guardianships. These documents allow other people to make decisions for you in the event you are unable to. Generally, the cost of preparing wills, powers of attorney and enduring guardianships for a couple is between $700 – $800, depending on your circumstances. Not only can we assist you in preparing legal documents, but we can also:
- Write a will that maximises the inheritance for your family
- Set up family and testamentary trusts (for more information about trusts, see this link
- Advise you in regard to choosing executors and guardians
- Minimise the chance that your will is contested and subject to litigation
- Safely store your will and other important legal documents
- Advise you in regard to estate and probate laws
Visit this article to read our top reasons you should have a will. Did you know that planning NOW for your family’s future after you’re gone could save your family a lot of money if done properly? There are many legal and tax benefits from what lawyers and accountants like to call “estate planning”.
So many people say “I don’t need a will, I don’t own anything”. Have you thought about your jewellery, your superannuation, your digital content, who will look after your children once you’re not able to…..all these things need consideration, and making an effective legally binding Will and Testament can save your family not only stress but money in what will undoubtedly be a difficult time for them.
It is surprising how many people do not make a will, or do not change their will when their circumstances change (ie. have children, divorce, acquire major assets). That said, estate planning is not only about having a will. For instance, did you know you can appoint someone to make important medical decisions when you are unable to? Or to handle your financial affairs if you can’t (whether it be because you are overseas or lose mental capacity)?
