Wills & Estates Planning Matters

Wills and Estate law can be a complex area to navigate.  From drafting a Will to protect your own assets, through to acting as the Executor of someone else's Will, this field of law can be fraught with emotion.

For many people, legal planning in this area is something that they put off.  The fact is, however, that everyone should be in control of their assets and able to ensure that they are distributed according to their wishes in the event of their passing.

At Selvaggio Lawyers, our friendly and approachable team can help you with all of your legal planning.  We take into consideration your personal situation and the other relevant circumstances, then advise you in terms of structuring your assets to minimise costs and tax implications for your beneficiaries.

We can also work with you to prepare Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship appointments to ensure that decisions regarding your financial or medical welfare are made by someone you trust should you find yourself unable to make decisions for yourself.

In addition to planning how your Estate will be distributed in the event of your passing, we can also ensure that the potential to make a claim against your estate is minimised.  Similarly, if you feel that you have been unfairly treated in someone else's Will, we can provide advice and guidance regarding your eligibility to contest a Will and the likely outcome of a claim.
