Wills & Estates
Life is unpredictable enough, why leave your final wishes to chance?
Dealing with the death of a loved one is one of life’s most stressful experiences. One of the easiest ways to ease the burden on those you leave behind is to prepare a precise statement of your wishes. At Banks Lawyers we offer personal, easy to understand and affordable wills and estates advice, and can help you with:
- Drafting and updating your will
- Powers of Attorney and Advance Health Directives
- Estate planning
Distribution and contesting of estates
If you’re an executor, administrator, trustee, or beneficiary of a will and need assistance distributing an estate, contesting a will or making a family maintenance claim under a disputed estate, we can help. Contact us for advice on:
- Applying for probate
- Dealing with a deceased estate – deceased estate administration and deceased estate claims
- Supreme court estate litigation
Disputed Estates – Including a No Win, No Fee service for professional fees
Although a will sets out how a person wants their estate dealt with after their death, disputes can arise as to the distribution of assets and the capacity of the person who made the will. If you believe you’ve been unfairly provided for in a close friend or family member’s will, you may have grounds for challenging the will and making a claim on the estate.
Strict time limits apply, so contact us for advice on:
- Determining your rights
- Making a claim
- We may be able to take on your case on a No Win, No Fee basis – contact us for more information.
