FAQs

Some things you may not know.

A Will is a legal document that specifies your wishes about who is to receive your assets after your death and who has been appointed to carry out those wishes (your executor).

If you have children under the age of 18 years, a Will is especially important as your Will can appoint testamentary guardians to provide for the care of your children.

If you die without a Will (or without a valid Will), you are said to have died intestate. In Queensland, laws of intestacy determine how your estate will be distributed and these may not be in line with your wishes.

There are specific processes and signing requirements for a Will to be valid.

Estate planning involves consideration of a number of documents to protect you and your loved ones.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions for you during your lifetime, if you no longer have the capacity to do so. Attorneys can be appointed to manage your financial matters and/or your personal and health matters.

Importantly, you can only make an Enduring Power of Attorney while you have the capacity to do so. There are specific witnessing requirements for an Enduring Power of Attorney to be valid.

An Advance Health Directive is a legal document that allows you to give directions about your future health care including directions about specific treatment to you want and do not want.

There are specific requirements for signing an Advance Health Directive in order for it to be valid and binding, including being signed by a Doctor and witnessed by a qualified, eligible witness.
