    Have you considered a Trust?

    If you want to ensure that your estate is protected from third parties eg: creditors or spouses that divorce from your children, you should consider a Testamentary Trust. If you want to incorporate a trust, please tick this box and we will contact you to discuss it in depth, as it will incur additional legal fees beyond the costs of a simple will.

    Do you need a Binding Death Nomination for your Superannuation savings?

    In Queensland, your will is not able to control or direct how your savings in your superannuation fund are to be paid out. Most people find this strange. If you die and do not have a current binding death nomination in place, your superannuation benefits (savings and/or insurance) typically get paid out to your dependents. A dependent is anyone who financially depended on you in some way at the time of your death - usually your spouse or children. A binding death nomination allows you to specifically nominate a qualified person to receive the benefits instead. Depending on your superannuation fund, nominations usually expire every 3 years.

    Yes, please contact me regarding a Binding Death Nomination

    Do you need a Power of Attorney?

    A power of attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the power to make personal and/or financial decisions on your behalf. The power can be limited for a specific time, or it can be ‘Enduring’ which means that the power continues even if you lose the capacity to make the decisions yourself.

    Do you need an Advance Health Directive?

    An advance health directive ('AHD') allows you to make decisions about your healthcare in advance of you losing capacity or otherwise becoming unable to make decisions about your own health care. For example, you may wish not to be resuscitated or to receive a blood transfusion due to religious beliefs. An AHD must be signed off by yourself and by a doctor.
