Preparing a Will with GKS Law

Allow us to make this process stress free.

Preparing a Will is one of those tasks that we often put off but having a will is the only way to have peace of mind about how your estate will be distributed. Your wishes and your estate are not the same as anyone else’s.

At GKS Law, our team specialises in helping clients just like you with:

  • Constructing an effective will;
  • Estate planning;
  • Offering advice on the legal and practical implications of your wishes.

To ensure that your will reflects your wishes, Jodie will meet with you taking the time necessary to gain a thorough understanding of all the relevant details. After gaining the necessary understanding of your assets, your family, the needs and abilities of your intended beneficiaries, taxation issues and the way that you want your property left, she can create an estate plan that incorporates all the necessary pieces, which may include:

  • Wills
  • Testamentary Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney (personal/health care and financial care)
  • Advance Health Directives

Power of Attorney

At GKS Law, we appreciate that ….

Like your will, making a power of attorney for your personal or financial matters is rarely something people like to consider in their day to day lives.

However, having a valid power of attorney is the only way to have your affairs looked after if you are incapacitated or incapable of making your own decisions.

If you don’t have a power of attorney in place you are leaving your care and finances up to chance.  Even if you have a spouse, they cannot automatically step in and make decisions on your behalf.  Think of it like an insurance policy – put it in place and hope that you never need it but have peace of mind in knowing that you will be looked after if the unforeseen happens.

Our experienced Wills & Estate team can assist you with making the correct form of power of attorney and guide you through the process to ensure you are protected well into the future.

Estate Administration

Peace of mind should during such a difficult time.

An experienced estates lawyer is essential to ensure timely and efficient administration of any estate, whether or not the deceased left a will.

Jodie Anderson-Bell is experienced in assisting executors in probate and estate administration matters and will work with you to make certain that your loved one’s assets are administered and distributed properly.

Contact our office to schedule a free initial consultation with Jodie to discuss your estate administration or probate matter.

It is important to note that even if the original will is held with another law firm you as executor can choose who you would like to assist you through this difficult process.
