WILLS &
ESTATES

Baby's Hand

Everyone needs a plan to ensure that their loved ones are looked after and financially secure after they pass away. A will can ensure your family and loved ones are taken care of in the future, while preventing others from unfairly benefiting from your hard work.

Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds. Wills can sometimes have unintended consequences, leaving the people you care about without support. At Verde Lawyers, we work closely with your accountants and financial planners to give you the best advice and ensure your loved ones are protected. The process of administering Wills can be complex and overwhelming following the passing away of a loved one. This is especially the case where the person was in possession of a multitude of assets. Verde Lawyers can ensure the utmost professionalism and support in the Probate process, ensuring that you or your loved one’s assets will be efficiently administered and following your genuine intentions.  

We are able to assist you with:

  • Drafting your will

  • Testamentary trusts

  • Estate planning and asset protection

  • Power of attorney

  • Appointing a guardian to make decisions for you if you lose the capacity

  • Grants of Probates, Letters of Administration and Reseals
