Clarke Hemmerling Lawyers can help you to create your personal Will, Advance Care Directive, and Enduring Power of Attorney.

Creating a legally binding Will is an important legal task that can save your family not only stress, but money – in what will be a difficult time for them.

Power of Attorney and Advance Care Directive will ensure that if you are unable to make decisions about your finances, medical treatment, or living arrangements – a trusted person (or persons) can make these decisions on your behalf unhindered.

Clarke Hemmerling Lawyers can help with Will and Estate Planning by:

  • Advising you regarding Estate and Probate laws
  • Writing a Will that maximises the inheritance for your family
  • Setting up Family and Testamentary Trusts
  • Advising you regarding choosing Executors and Guardians
  • Minimising the chance that your Will is contested and subject to litigation

We also assist with matters relating to Probate: a legal process to validate the Will of a person who has passed.

Mountains of paperwork, legal jargon, and simmering family disputes are the last things you need to deal with when you’re grieving the loss of a family member or someone close. So we can assist with:

  • Interpreting the Will of the deceased concerning estate laws
  • Advising Executors and Trustees in their duties and rights
  • Applying for Probate of the Will in the Supreme Court
  • Dealing with Intestacy (where there is no will)
  • Applying for Letters of Administration
  • Obtaining valuations of Estate property
  • Selling or transferring Estate property including Estate auctions
  • Paying Estate debts including mortgages, funeral costs, and testamentary expenses
  • Advising about and administering Family and Testamentary Trusts
  • Distributing bequests and inheritances to beneficiaries
  • Advising on inheritance claims
  • Arranging family mediation and negotiation
  • Contesting Wills and defending Estate litigation in the Supreme Court

We recommend that your Will be updated when key life events occur, so that you can ensure your wishes are followed when the time comes.

We will protect your rights, limit your liabilities, and enable you to quickly respond to opportunities
