Regardless of the size of the estate, most people would prefer to decide how their assets will be distributed on their death, as well as ensure the administration of their estate is not unnecessarily burdensome on their family.
A comprehensive estate plan includes a number of important considerations including a Will, Enduring Power of Attorney and Advanced Health Directive, and structuring of companies and trusts. That said, a current and valid Will is the foundation of a good estate plan and a necessity for any person who wants to:
- Determine how their estate will be distributed;
- Make gifts or donations;
- Appoint a guardian for minor children; and
- Reduce conflict, stress and the financial and legal burden for their family.
