Estate planning goes beyond drafting a Will – it includes:

  • The assessment of assets
  • The assessment of likely taxation
  • Advice regarding the possibility of claims against the estate by third parties
  • The protection of assets
  • Considering protective documents such as Enduring or Supportive Power of Attorney, Appointment of Medical Treatment Decision Maker or Advance Care Directives

Estate planning is an active process of re-evaluating the estate when circumstances in life change, such as:

  • Newly married couples or those divorcing

  • A change to the family’s asset pool
  • A change in family dynamics
  • The birth or death of a family member or appointed Executor or Guardian

  • A change in working conditions, buying or selling of a business
  • Changes to superannuation, insurance policies or taxation levels
  • The establishment of family trusts
