While disputes in estate matters are regrettable, they do arise. If that happens we can assist you with seeking the quickest and most cost-effective resolution available.
How We Can Help You
Too often creating and maintaining a Will, and attending all of the related life-planning matters, is left undone as people are occupied with the day-to-day activities of life. Regrettably, failing to prepare and update a Will, settle a Trust, issue a Personal Directive and execute an Enduring Power of Attorney can leave your loved ones burdened during your time of need, and not cared for in the manner that you would have wanted after your passing.
Our firm can help you with these critical matters, including all aspects of estate planning, administration, and all aspects of probate. We are well-placed to assist you with any size estate, be it a straightforward family arrangement to a complex multi-jurisdictional estate.
If a dispute arises regarding the terms of a Will, the circumstances of its execution, or with its administration, we can help with any necessary challenges, litigation, Court applications for interpretation or directions, as well as mediation of disputes amongst potential beneficiaries.
If unexpected circumstances regarding a trust arise giving need to vary its terms to meet the intention of the settlor or the changing circumstances, we can assist with an application of the Court for a variation of the terms of the trust, or to respond to such an application on your behalf if needed.
If you need assistance with a Will, a Personal Directive, a Power of Attorney, an estate, a trust, or if you are involved in a litigious dispute about any of these things, contact us now for help.
