Whilst this sounds quite straight forward, it is often assumed that ‘estate planning’ simply refers to the preparation of a Will, however, in some cases, it’s just not that simple.
Some aspects of estate planning extend beyond the Will.

A review of your family trust deeds, superannuation funds and asset ownership arrangements will likely be required. Don’t worry! We’re here to help!
