Despite warnings regarding the mess that can be caused by people neglecting to make a Will a surprising number of Australians fail to have one drawn up.
It doesnot matter if you are wealthy or not so wealthy; a legal Will if you have assets and family is important and should not be neglected.
Many people think it can be deferred until they are elderly, but the reality is that young couples with children should have a Will to make provisions for them.
Furthermore, most experts say it should be reviewed every three to five years or as financial and family circumstances change such as when there is a separation or divorce, remarriage or the birth of a child.
If you fail to complete a Will the Government will distribute your assets. (Intestate) This is very likely to not be what you wished for. Some people may benefit that you would prefer not to, rather than to your family and beneficiaries as you may choose.
Some of these laws are quite onerous and can be the cause of major disputes and legal expense to your estate.Decisions need to be made as to how to divide assets, provisions that you may want to be made for children and so on.
- Is your property owned in the most beneficial way for distribution?
- Are you married or in a de facto relationship?
- Do you have children under 18? Do you have children from previous relationships?
- How do you want your assets divided among family and friends?
