Can I prepare my own Will?

The precise wording of a Will is a specialised and important legal task. The ordinary meaning of words is not necessarily the same as their legal meaning. Ambiguous wording is extremely common in home-made Wills and may result in substantial cost and delay in having the Supreme Court resolve the ambiguity. Therefore preparing your own Will is not advisable. A Will must conform to strict legal requirements otherwise the Courts may decide it is not valid. If this is the case your assets will be distributed according to a predetermined formula and not as you intended. Anyone who is not legally qualified risks making a mistake, creating uncertainty or losing opportunities for good estate planning. 

When to update your Will?

1. New people need to be named  in your Will

2. A person in the Will has died or become ill

3. Divorce or separation

4. Marriage or Defacto yourself or your children

4. Your wishes have changed

5. Changes to your assets

6. Personal details have changed

7. A named dependent comes of age

8. Illness or medical changes.
