Managing your future financial, medical, health care and other essential needs becomes even more important as you get older. Estate planning puts you in control of your future and ensures your wishes are respected.
Estate planning lets you choose who can make decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to or no longer around. It’s also the surest way to establish who’ll manage your estate and receive your assets when you’re gone.
While considering your own demise is about the most challenging subject any of us can imagine, planning ahead allows those closest to you to carry out your wishes quickly and easily during a difficult time.
An estate planning lawyer can create a strategy to fit your situation and goals, and provide help with:
- Ensuring your loved ones will be looked after
- Protecting loved ones who may be vulnerable
- Preventing your assets from ending up in the wrong hands
- Ensuring your wishes are carried out
- Minimising the risk of disputes
- Minimising the tax payable on your estate
- Changes to your personal, family or financial situation
