In this blog post, we will discuss what you need to know about preparing a will. We will cover why it is important to have a valid will in place, and then go into detail on how you can create one yourself if that’s the route you want to take. This article also covers what happens when there’s no will in place and who gets everything under those circumstances. It also touches on the importance of having an executor named, and how to find one.
In order to prepare a will, you may need to seek legal advice from a will lawyers Sydney. A good place to start if looking for a lawyer is the Law Society of your state or territory. In Australia there are separate associations that deal with different parts of law and these include:
Legal aid organisations which provide free assistance on certain matters such as making an application for social security payments etc..
Community Legal Centres which offer some services at low cost or no charge. You can contact them directly for more information about what they offer and where they are located around Australia. If their website says “we do not take appointments” then you should consider going straight into the office business hours when it would be less busy.
Legal Aid Bureau which provides a free service that helps people who are financially disadvantaged to get legal advice and assistance in certain matters that may be a priority for them, such as family law or crime related issues.
Law Firms – these will usually have Wills lawyers working there however they also tend to charge more because of the nature of their work. This is especially true if you need help with an international matter due to increased complexity involved in cases like this. For example, estate planning from a different country could mean getting expert opinions from both countries about what your options would be under each respective jurisdiction’s laws etc..
Notaries Public can offer some basic services but not all states/territories allow them to draft wills.
Law Society in each State/Territory – they have a list of lawyers who are members and you can search for them based on what type of law their practice is or by location etc..
In addition, there are also:
Accountants who can help you make a will and ensure your assets really get passed onto the people you want them to go to. They do this by making sure there is no tax payable on what happens when you die, whether that be in capital gains or estate duty etc..
Financial Advisors like CFP’s (Certified Financial Planners) can offer advice about wills because they understand how investments work and other aspects of financial planning such as insurance which could cover funeral expenses for example. This might not sound important but if something happened unexpectedly then it would mean less stress for those left behind in dealing with all arrangements at once rather than over time etc..
Insurance brokers – these are similar to the above but they advise on specific types of insurance that can be taken out to provide protection for the people you leave behind. For example, life insurance which provides money upfront so your family is financially protected if anything happens to you etc..
Financial Planners – these are similar again but more specialise in managing money over time rather than providing advice about specific financial products or investment offerings. They tend to work with clients who do not feel confident making their own investments and taking control of their finances at all times when markets might go up or down.
In conclusion, there are different types of professionals you can speak to depending on what it is you want advice about. You can contact them directly for more information about what they offer and where they are located around Australia. If their website says “we do not take appointments” then you should consider going straight into the office business hours.
