A living will & other advance directives are written instructions that state your medical care preferences if you can’t make decisions for yourself. Advance directives help doctors & caregivers understand your wishes if you are terminally ill, badly injured, in a coma, or near the end of life.
A will is one of the most important aspects of estate planning. However, there are other things that also need to be considered. These include but are not limited to, powers of attorney, living wills, and beneficiary designations. Investments like superannuation can’t be left in a will.
Contest a Will
If you are considering challenging a will or making a family provision claim, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. There are strict time limits that apply, so you need to take action quickly. You also need to be sure that you have a right to contest the will in question.

MAKING A WILL
Making a will that completely covers all your assets, superannuation, property and investments and ensures your chosen beneficiaries receive their inheritance requires expert advice. Anyone over 18 can make a will but not everyone knows how to be sure all areas are covered. Don’t leave disputes behind you, leave a well thought out will.
Your will specifies your decisions and wishes for your estate, after you die. It also states who you want to leave your estate to (your beneficiaries).
Simons Ravden Wills & Estate Lawyers are experts at assisting you in drafting your last will and testament. This will help protect your assets and reduce the likelihood of challenges to the will.
We also assist in contesting a will, if you believe you have grounds. Get in touch to discuss your issues.
Will challenges may be due to:
– will not being legally executed & witnessed
– will not being legally approved (if the deceased was not in a position to approve the will contents)
– you believe the will was created as a result of undue influence or there are suspicious circumstances when a will favours one beneficiary with no good reason.
– your relationship to the deceased. If you are a spouse, child, stepchild or dependent of the deceased and have not been left with support.
Estate planning involves developing a strategy for dealing with your assets after you’re dead. You should ensure you or your executor have enough knowledge and skills to handle the all aspects of administering an estate. It’s important to seek advice from external advisers if you need to understand more complicated estate planning issues.
