Life is full of uncertainties. That’s why it’s important to make wise financial decisions which preserve your valuable assets, protecting your family and estate well into the future.
The right planning can give you genuine peace of mind. Let our experienced wills and estate lawyers, based in Sydney, ensure that your assets are protected and preserved according to your wishes.
Estate planning starts with a will. This document should be professionally prepared and legally valid to ensure it accurately states your intentions, covering all necessary eventualities.
A will provides for your loved ones while distributing your personal and business assets exactly as you specify. It also prevents the state from taking a large slice of your hard-earned estate!
Rockdene’s estate planning lawyers have spent years working in wills and estates, handling matters both complex and standard. We can help you draw up a comprehensive will which should be reviewed at regular intervals, reflecting changed life circumstances like births, marriages, deaths and purchase or loss of significant assets. Our areas of expertise include:
- Providing tailored solutions such as Hybrid Unit Trusts, to provide for blended families.
- Company directors and business owners needing careful succession planning.
- Family trusts which can help protect family and business assets.
- Special disability trusts that can provide for vulnerable family members.
Enduring powers of attorney and guardianship may also be put in place, to manage financial and legal affairs in the case of incapacity of some kind. Our experienced lawyers can assist in giving you peace of mind in these matters.
The death of a loved one is a difficult time in anyone’s life. We are on hand to guide you through the process with care and consideration, easing the legal and administrative burden which so many executors and administrators carry.
Once probate is granted, our lawyers can complete all the legal and practical requirements regarding the will, estate and distribution of assets.
Contact us if you are contesting a will or challenging a will, even if you are not a family member. In some instances, an unrelated person may have a valid claim if they can establish a financial dependency. However, don’t delay. Claims can only be made within specific time limits.
