Wills and Powers of Attorney

State laws regulate the laws applying to wills, and the laws of intestacy which is relevant where a person dies without a valid will.

Every person should have a will and should regularly reconsider the provisions of their will, especially when their circumstances change. This is especially applicable when a person marries or separates, and when they have children.

Some people wish to ensure that someone will attend to their financial affairs if they cannot do so, because for example they are overseas for an extended period, or they are physically or emotionally incapable. This can be done by way of a Power of Attorney, which can provide the attorney with wide ranging or limited powers.

Please speak to any of our staff about your will or power of attorney.
