Why do I need a Will?
Writing a Will allows you to decide how your estate is distributed after your passing. A legal, up-to-date Will is very important because it ensures that your final wishes are carried out and you can provide for the people and causes most important to you.
If you don't already have a Will, you should consider speaking to your solicitor or the government Public Trustee in your State or Territory.
How do I make a Will?
Wills are precise legal documents which are meant to determine the disburesment of your property according to your wishes. To be sure your assets are distributed as you intend, please seek professional help to prepare or modify your Will. Writing a sample Will should not be expensive.
