Wills & Estates

Power of Attorney

Unfortunately, circumstances may dictate that we are no longer in a position to manage our own financial and health affairs. Be it as a result of an accident, illness or our absence overseas, the law provides that a holder of our Power of Attorney can act on our behalf.

Just as a Will is essential to ensure that things are done as we would like after our death, a Power of Attorney ensures that our financial and health concerns can be properly dealt with where our capacity to do so because of illness or absence prevents us from doing so.

At the QLD Law Group we believe that every adult should have an Enduring Power of Attorney and strongly consider creating an Advanced Health Directive.

You know the old saying “you can’t avoid death and taxes”. Unfortunately, none of us are going to live forever so we all need a Will. If you don’t have a Will then the Government decides how your family will share what you leave behind not you.

It is important that you have a Will that reflects not just your wishes, but your current life circumstances.

You may now have your own business or run a company and your life is complicated. You need a Will that deals with these complications and the QLD Law Group can ensure that your family isn’t left with a mess to clean up when you are gone.

It is important to keep your Will current. You should think about having the QLD Law Group review your Will if a significant event occurs, such as having to provide guardians for your children.

There are a number of life’s events that should trigger a review of your estate planning and will including:

  • Getting married or finding a life partner;
  • Buyer a property for the first time;
  • Having children (to provide guardians for);
  • Children reaching 18;
  • Getting divorced;
  • Significantly changed family arrangements;
  • Starting up a new business.

Remember not having a Will leaves your estate to the inflexible intestacy rules that decide where your money goes not you.

The QLD Law Group can help you:

  • If you have been made an Executor under a Will; or
  • You have been left out of a Will.

If you have been made an Executor (a person entrusted to divide the estate) under a Will, this is a serious task that if not handled properly can expose you to stress and even being sued. The QLD Law Group can apply the QLD Law Group Difference to guide you through this complicated process and make it as simple and stress-free as it can be and make sure that you are not sued by a disgruntled person.

Life isn’t always fair.

Sometimes you do things for others on a promise that they will take care of you when they go or sometimes a family member treats you differently to the rest of the family under their Will.

Simply because you have been excluded under the Will, doesn’t mean that you aren’t entitled to a share in the estate. The QLD Law Group can help you get what you are entitled to.
Sometimes Wills contain the unexpected or the unforeseen due to the age of the Will or errors in drafting that do not properly give effect to the deceased’s intention. It is possible to challenge a Will if a person believes they should have benefited in a way different from the outcome. The QLD Law Group’s experienced lawyers will advise you of these prospects and help you through these upsetting times.
