At Kerdo Legal, we know that having these conversations may be difficult. This is about looking after your family.
We can help you care for your loved ones in the most difficult of times.
A will helps make sure your family has as few problems as possible dealing with your estate after you have died.
We assist individuals and couples to prepare simple wills and power of attorney documents, to ensure your wishes are carried out when you can no longer make these directions.
It is important to make a will. If you pass on without a will, you have no control over the distribution of your estate. If the courts have to sort it out, it will take a long time – maybe over 2 years before your estate is distributed. There will be legal fees, and these will have to come out of the estate.
By making a clear and legal will, you ensure your family do not have any added burden placed on them.
If you already have a will that you made yourself with a Will Kit, we can have a look at it for you for your peace of mind. Changes were made to the way wills are done in 2015. You need to be sure that your will is still legal.
Powers of attorneys give you choice and control if you are disabled in some way in the future.
By appointing an attorney now, you can make sure that your voice is heard and your wishes are respected in decisions about your future welfare and care.
Kerdo Legal can also prepare Advanced Care Directives. These are not yet binding in Victoria, but they do provide a specific guide to your family, and to any medical and health professionals about serious medical decisions.
We also understand the issues in the LGBTIQ+ and Poly communities. People in polyamorous families face special issues that the law does not specifically understand or accept. At Kerdo legal, we can help you take steps to protect your family if something happens to you. We Care. We know.We Can.
