Everyone knows the old saying about “Death and Taxes” and we all know that both are certainties for each and every one of us. We will all pay tax in one form or another and we will all die. Yet for some strange reason we find that the majority of people don’t have wills, haven’t made provision for their estate planning and have no idea of the importance and impact of probate law after their death.
Yes, we know it’s a morbid subject but it’s a bit like a visit to the dentist, we don’t look forward to it but we know we have to go to avoid bigger problems in the future.
The highly qualified lawyers at GA Lawyers Sydney are highly experienced in Probate, Wills and Estate Planning. Although every individual case is different there are certain requirements in this area of the law which must be satisfied to reduce or eliminate the probability of complications in the future.
We make sure we take the time to listen to our clients and to understand their wishes for the distribution of their estate in the event of their passing. We advise our clients accordingly and ensure that their wishes comply with NSW Probate Law requirements and guidelines.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a very important legal document which should only be created after serious consideration and expert legal advice.
A Power of Attorney literally and legally gives another person or organisation the ability to legally deal with your assets (cash, property, shares, belongings etc.) while you are still living.
A Power of Attorney is often drawn up when a person is mentally unstable, seriously ill and / or incapacitated. It can also be terminated at any time provided you are mentally capable.
Our lawyers have many years of experience in this field and are more than qualified to provide a high level of expert advice.
