Doing the paperwork

Legal Implications

If ‘ something’ happens, hard decisions have to be made. This is where having a current Will and Enduring Powers of Attorney will relieve the stress for everyone. They are the cornerstone of financial planning.

Did you know that if you die without a Will, you die “intestate? This means the division of your estate is quite likely settled in the courts. If you suffer a medical event that leaves you unable to make decisions on your behalf, then these decisions are quite likely settled in the courts causing extra stress, hassle, and grief, for everyone involved.

Most people don’t realise that your Will becomes invalid (in most cases) upon marriage, but remains a binding document upon divorce – this can have a detrimental impact on future situations if people do not review matters.
