Estate Planning is a very comprehensive area comprising a large part of the law. When preparing an estate plan for a client, we take a good look at their current situation and project forward two, five,10 and maybe 20 years.
Each case is different, with a huge number of possible scenarios. Whether you have a typical nuclear family, a reconstituted or blended family, a solo parent family, or whether there are brothers and sisters or parents involved, existing children or plans to have them, previous relationships, possible future relationships. We get an overview, talk about your hopes and aspirations and then devise a plan to put that into operation.
In doing so, we may look at a number of different areas of law, including wills, trusts, property-relationship agreements, property-sharing agreements, enduring powers of attorney, insurance, and the list goes on!
Each individual case will be custom designed to suit your situation.
