Help making or changing your Will

Make sure your wishes are carried out

If you want to pass on something that has the power to transform lives, it is important to make sure you have an up-to-date Will.

If you need some help we can refer you to a trusted Solicitor through the National Solicitor Network. They will be able to help you change an existing Will or make a new one for $150 per Will.

6 reasons to get your Will sorted

  1. A Will reflects who and what is important to you – your loved ones, family, friends, causes and charities.
  2. It is the only way to ensure your possessions and assets go to the people and causes you care about most. If you don’t make a Will, the law will dictate how your estate is distributed.
  3. Having a Will also enables you to make important decisions such as appointing guardians of your children, and choosing your executors and trustees.
  4. Making a Will represents an important opportunity to discuss and review your legal and financial affairs with qualified professionals.
  5. A Will can help loved ones avoid a costly, stressful legal process for. Settling an estate without a Will can be a complicated.
  6. Your Will should mirror important milestones throughout your life, such as buying property, relationships, marriage, children and retirement.
