Having a valid Will can ensure that your wishes are carried out in an ordered way without creating stress for your loved ones. You should update your Will when your circumstances change and review it to check it reflects your current situation at least every five years. Important events that you should keep in mind when preparing a Will or updating a Will are:
- If you marry or enter into a relationship
- Upon separation or Divorce
- If the circumstances of your nominated Executor or beneficiaries have changed
- If you have acquired of or disposed of significant assets including change’s to your superannuation
A Power of Attorney authorises an Attorney of your choice to make decisions for you in the event that you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself. This will give you certainty about who will make decisions for you and prevent your loved ones from having to obtain legal authority to manage your affairs if you are unable to do so. The appointment of an Attorney or Attorneys is an important one and you should ensure you understand full the impact of your proposal and that your documents are legally binding. You should update your Enduring Power of Attorney when your circumstances change or in the event that your health declines.
