Whilst everyone should have a legal will not all wills are the same. The growing complexities of today’s society, taxation laws and the expansion of superannuation mean that having a simple will alone may not ensure that your assets are passed on to your intended beneficiaries.
At Donlan Lawyers we can assist you with all of your estate planning requirements from simple wills to complex trusts and can also help to prepare powers of attorney and advance care directives to ensure that you are protected if you lose the ability to make decisions about your financial affairs or medical and lifestyle treatment.
We can also help you to administer a deceased estate including obtaining a grant of probate or letters of administration.
We understand that dealing with family issues is often very difficult and seeing a lawyer at this time is never easy. We take the time to listen to and understand your situation in order to provide the best possible outcome.
Donlan Lawyers can assist you with all your Family Law needs. Our services include divorce, children & property disputes, binding financial agreements, obtaining consent orders, cohabitation agreements and child maintenance agreements.
We can also assist you in relation to property disputes in both the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court as well as assisting you to attempt to reach a settlement at the earliest stages.
Whilst it makes sense to have your will and estate planning in order, the effectiveness of the best laid plans can be reduced if you do not give proper consideration to other commercial matters such as asset protection.
If you do not take the time to consider your asset structures including your business ownership structures you may be missing opportunities to minimise tax, protect your assets and plan to hand control on to your intended beneficiaries when the time is right.
As superannuation has become one of our most significant assets, it is also important that you understand the superannuation environment, the applicable rules and the effect of your death on your superannuation benefits.
Donlan Lawyers can also assist you to develop and implement business succession strategies to provide for departure from your business for reasons of retirement and also for reasons of incapacity, death or disablement.
We often work closely with your financial adviser or accountant to assist with your succession strategies.
Hospital & Home visits available if required. Please contact us to arrange.
