Do you need help with a will?
You may have heard local lawyer Katie Binstock, the Chair of our Elder Law & Succession Law Committee, chatting with Georgia Stynes on ABC Radio recently about why it’s important to have a legal will.
Below are some resources on this topic. If you need assistance, please call the Law Society on 6274 0300 and we can put you in touch with a lawyer or a firm who can help you.
Every person over the age of eighteen should make a Will. Your Will sets out how you want your property and possessions distributed when you die.
