Why bother making a Will?

If you die without making a Will (intestate), your assets, including your personal belongings, will be distributed according to the strict provisions in the Administration and Probate Act. You risk your estate being left to your legal next of kin.

This could mean that the people you most want to benefit from your estate might not get anything at all. Also, it may take longer and cost more to administer your estate. Reasons for having a Will or for review of your Will include:

- Secure you children’s future

- Marriage

- Divorce

- De facto relationships

- Early distribution of estate

- Decide who benefits

- Choose your executor
