Meet Expert Will Lawyers for Easy to do Wills
As the most important financial documents of your life, your Will and Testament (commonly known as a legal will) needs to be precise so your wishes are carried out. If you do not make a Will, your estate/assets are distributed using a formula determined by the government. This formula applies regardless of your situation and can be an expensive and devastating experience resulting in parties who you did not wish to receive your assets doing precisely that.
Maspero Legal have many years of creating, checking and updating Wills for people from all walks of life and life stages. Our easy two-step Will service is cost effective and flexible, ensuring peace of mind for you and your loved ones for years to come.
We will walk you through any concerns or legal jargon you have about your will, so you can rest assured your will says what you need it to. Our family law attorneys and will lawyers are renowned in Sydney for our simple, personalised and fast service.
What might you want to include in your will?
- Money whether it’s on hand, within a savings account, stocks, etc
- Real estate, land or buildings
- A family business or shares in a business
- Your car, personal jewelry or acquired artworks, etc
- Child custody
- You can also include your ‘residuary estate’ in your will, meaning anything you own that isn’t listed
What will happen to your children when you pass away?
After you die most assume the custody of your child goes to the surviving parent, but that is not necessarily the case. If the relationship has been estranged or they have been absent in their life, they can’t just make the child live with them. To put it shortly, it’s complicated. A child custody attorney will be able to walk you through the matter with sound legal advice, so that you can take that in mind when creating your will.
Our child custody attorneys in Sydney are well experienced in this matter. With over 15 years of experience with working with families, you can rest assured that you are in good hands. We are a compassionate and friendly team.
What is Probate?
Probate is the legal process of identifying and distributing your assets according to your will when you die. There are several different aspects of probate in the legal system, such as: grant of probate, will disputes, reseal of probate, succession planning, or probate letters of administration. Our family law attorneys can handle it all
Our will lawyers can also talk to you through the process your executor and beneficiaries will have to go through when the time comes. So you can have the peace of mind for your loved ones, knowing they will be prepared.
Can my will be contested?
If you do not make provisions for those that are in your care than it is very possible that your will may be contested. Our succession planning and will lawyers can help you see that all vulnerable people get sufficiently covered in your will. Our experienced and friendly team will give you all the legal advice you need in regards to preparing your will.
What is an executor?
An executor is whoever you have appointed to take care of the distribution of your assets according to your request when you pass away. The executor has a fiduciary duty to all the beneficiaries of your will.
What is a beneficiary?
A beneficiary is any person or organisation you want to give your assets to after death. Anyone you would like to name can be a beneficiary.
What can an executor do?
- Open probate with court
- Identify assets
- Alert the heirs and all interested parties
- Pay debts of the deceased from the estate
- Distribute the estate to beneficiaries, according to the will
What can’t an executor do?
- Attempt to carry out the actions of the will before the testator’s death
- Sign any will that hasn’t been signed
- Sell any asset from the estate for less than market value without beneficiaries’ agreement
- Change provisions in a will
- Block heirs or beneficiaries from contesting the will
