Gone are the days when you could make a will and then rest easy for the next 50 years. The law has become more complicated in recent times.
For instance, are you aware that your will doesn’t cover your superannuation benefits or trust assets? You spend a lifetime building your wealth, so it’s important that you choose where it goes after you pass away.
At Burke & Associates Lawyers we are experienced in all types of succession plans, from the simple will to complex arrangements including testamentary trusts. Talk to us and we’ll give you the right advice on keeping up with the times so your affairs are in order and your decisions are respected.
The duties required in relation to the deceased person’s estate may be very simple, or they may be complicated, emotional and time-consuming.
