Wills and Estate Planning

Are your wishes for your estate clearly understood?

Planning your estate and its future distribution is one of the greatest acts of consideration that many of us contemplate. With an Estate Plan you have the comfort of knowing that your wishes regarding your estate are clearly spelled out and understood.
Many people are surprised to learn that estate planning encompasses much more than Wills. Estate planning involves not only asset distribution but may also include:

Choosing your executor who will carry out your directions
Succession for business arrangements
Consideration of previous relationships, defacto and blended families
Management of tax liabilities and probate
Arrangements  for incapacity or illness
