Wills & Estate Planning in Maitland & The Hunter Valley

Why get legal assistance?

A Solicitor can ensure your Will is legally binding and meets your specific needs and wishes. A Will gives you the peace of mind of knowing your loved ones will be looked after when you pass away. If you don’t have a Will, your estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy, which may not be what you would have wanted. A Solicitor can help you avoid any potential disputes between your beneficiaries by drafting a clear and concise Will.

Solicitors can also assist you with updating your Will after significant life events, such as a marriage, divorce or childbirth. It’s important to get legal assistance if your family circumstances change because you may wish to add or remove beneficiaries.
