If you die without making a Will, your estate could be dealt with under the intestacy laws, where the government, not you, decides how your estate should be distributed.

5 pages long.
Will for Couples
A Will for Couples is important even though you may not consider yourself rich, but no matter where you believe you stand on the socio-economic ladder, you always need a Will. Be careful that you don’t undervalue your true wealth, or what you might be worth within a relatively short time. People normally have some kind of life insurance or death benefit with their superannuation.
Will for Blended Family
A blended family is a family in which one or both partners have a child or children from a previous relationship. Careful estate planning ensures that all of your intended beneficiaries are provided for when you die and that the potential for conflict within the family unit is minimised.
Will with Testamentary Trust
This Will is 16 pages long and creates a Testamentary Trust for each beneficiary.
We have divided it into four schedules to minimise repetition and make it as short as a Will creating a testamentary trust can be. There are three groups of primary beneficiaries for whom trusts are created:
- A spouse;
- The testator’s children;
- Children of a predeceased child or children.
This precedent can be used to create any number of testamentary trusts.

A marriage revokes a Will. It is important to create a Will in Contemplation of Marriage so that this does not occur on your honeymoon.
