Wills, Estates & Succession Planning

Making a valid will, with its many negative connotations, can be all too easily postponed or left out of date so it no longer accommodates your present circumstances or plans for the future.

It is vital that your wishes are made clear and specific with no room for varied interpretations that can lead to future misunderstandings, conflicting claims or provide opportunities for claims, disputes and possible litigation. The absence of a will can lead to other people (including government agencies) making your decisions for you.

Geldard Sherrington Lawyers has years of experience in estate planning. A valid, up-to-date will ensures your beneficiaries receive the assets you intend them to receive. We can assist you with:

  • Drafting and updating wills
  • Applying for probate or letters of administration (where there is no valid will)
  • Claims against wills and estates
  • Estate planning administration
  • Deceased estate claims
  • Supreme Court estate litigation
  • Powers of attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document that enables another person to act on your behalf. It ensures that important matters are dealt with by someone you trust if you are unable to do so yourself.
