Making A Will

Do you want to make sure that your loved ones are taken care of when you’re gone? Do you want to ease the emotional and financial burden on your family at a time when they are grieving your loss?

With our simple, convenient and affordable online Will writing service, you can have peace of mind in less than 5 days.

Making a Will might be something that you’ve been thinking about doing, but for one reason or another, you just haven’t got around to it. It’s not surprising though. Death isn’t something anyone likes to talk about and, there’s a lot to think about too, – who should benefit, who should look after the kids, who you should appoint as executor, and so on. It’s no wonder then that over 58% of Australian’s do not have a Will – but they should, now more than ever.

By having a legally drafted Will, you can leave your money, property, personal possessions to who you want, and appoint executors and guardians for your children.

If you don’t have a Will, put simply, the law will make those decisions for you. Decisions that you may not have necessarily made. Administering your estate will take longer, it will cost more and will place your loved ones under stress, at time of when they are grieving your loss.

But it doesn’t have to be like this. With our simple, affordable and convenient will writing service, you can be sure to have a legally binding Will that is right for you and your family.

We know that getting your Will done is unlikely to be at the top of your to-do list but remember – it’s never too early until it’s too late, so get started today!

If you don’t have a Will, the intestacy rules determine how your estate is distributed. The intestacy rules are rigid. Put simply, you won’t have the option of distributing your estate to who you want in the way you want. Family squabbles tend to be more likely when testators intentions are not made clear.

Under the intestacy rules, your estate is distributed in the following order:

  1. Spouses (or de-facto partners)
  2. Children
  3. Grandchildren or great-grandchildren
  4. Parents
  5. Siblings
  6. Nephews and nieces
  7. Other family members

Special conditions also apply for spouses and children, with provisions for dividing amounts between them, or between multiple partners. This can mean, that sometimes, not all of your estate will pass to your surviving spouse or de facto partner.

  • With a will, you get to decide who you would like to appoint as your executor, i.e. someone you trust to collect, administer and distribute your estate. Under the intestacy rules, persons likely to inherit can apply to administer your estate.
  • With a will, you get to decide who you would like to look after your children. Under the intestacy rules, a family court decides, should a dispute arise.
  • With a will, you get to decide whether the whole of your estate will be left to your surviving spouse or de-facto partner. Under the intestacy rules, your estate is distributed to set order of persons.
  • With a will, you get to decide who inherits your estate, when they inherit and in what proportions. Under the intestacy rules, you don’t.
  • With a will, you get to decide whether to leave a charitable gift. Under the intestacy rules, you don’t.
  • With a will, you get to decide whether you leave gifts to individual people outside of the family, for, e.g. a friend or carer. Under the intestacy rules, you don’t.
  • With a will, you can leave gifts of personal belongings to any person. Under the intestacy rules, you can’t because all personal belongings automatically pass to your spouses or de-facto partners.
  • With a will, if you own a business, you can set out who would inherit your shares, who would take over the running of it day-to-day, and what should happen if your business partner wants to sell.
  • With a will, administering an estate takes less time, with less money and less stress. Under the intestacy rules, the legal costs, time and stresses for the family increase.
Not necessarily, but you should.

Your Solicitor will ensure that your wishes are capable of being carried out on your death. A properly drafted Will is well worth the money spent. Off the shelf will pack and homemade wills can be fraught with difficulties – including:

  • Risk of undue influence, duress and incapacity of the will-maker resulting in contesting of a Will.
  • Leaving assets, you don’t own. For, e.g. superannuation or business interests.
  • Failing to have the right witnesses witness your Will.
  • Failing to date the Will.
  • Losing the Will.
  • Ignoring a beneficiary.
  • Failing to understand legal definitions.
  • Ambiguity in the wording of the gift.
  • Tax implications of leaving gifts.
  • Unintentionally revoking an overseas made Will.

  • Are there any specific gifts you want to go to someone?
