People often hold a mistaken belief that estate planning is only for the wealthy, or a process that is relevant in the twilight years of life. Experience proves that such an approach can be inefficient from a tax perspective and may also result in unnecessary costs and delays in administering a Will.

ESTATE PLANNING AND DISPUTES
Planning your estate is one of the most important things you will ever do, ensuring the appropriate administration of your assets during your life and after your death. Every circumstance is different and preparing a Will or making arrangements for your estate or trust means there is no one answer for everyone – we work with you to understand your situation and put a solid plan in place for you. Alongside the preparation of Wills and property agreements, we also work to resolve any issues or disputes relating to Wills and estates.
CONTESTING A WILL
There are some circumstances where someone may have grounds for contesting a Will, and we can help guide you through the process to the best possible outcome. This usually occurs where the Will is valid, but the provisions stated in the Will are deemed unfair. The process of contesting a Will involves negotiation with disputing parties, mediation to discuss the issues, and arbitration / litigation if required.
