Have you considered a Trust?

You need to ensure that your estate is protected from third parties eg: creditors or spouses that divorce from your children, you should consider a Testamentary Trust. If you want to incorporate a trust, please tick this box and we will contact you to discuss it in depth, as it will incur additional legal fees beyond the costs of a simple Will. Initial advice is free.

Do you need a Power of Attorney?

A power of attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the power to make personal and/or financial decisions on your behalf. The power can be limited for a specific time, or it can be ‘Enduring’ which means that the power continues even if you lose the capacity to make the decisions yourself. For more information or if you want us to prepare a power of attorney document for you please mark the box below.

Do you need an Enduring Guardian?

An enduring guardian can make lifestyle, health and medical decisions on your behalf if you lack the capacity to make those decisions yourself. A guardian acts as a substitute decision-maker and can consent to your future medical and dental treatment and accommodation arrangements. The appointment also authorises health care professionals to share your information with your guardian.
