Estate planning documents are often prepared years before they’re needed. Lawyers retire, Law Firms can move, close or be sold/merged, and people can naturally move also. If a Will can’t be located, the Law presumes the Will was revoked. This has major implications for family, friends & beneficiaries, and ultimately makes the time, effort & money YOU have invested creating/modifying YOUR Will to be absolutely pointless. This is exactly why Australian Will Registry provides a simple & easy to use online system. The AWR safe and secure Will Registry ensures the investment YOU have made in your Will is to avail and that your final wishes are executed.
A Will is a legally binding document that sets out the distribution of your assets after the event of your death. A Will is a very important document as it allows your assets to be protected and distributed according to your wishes.
In the event of your death, if you don’t have a Will, your assets and the entirety of your estate are distributed according to the Australian Administration and Probate Act 1958. This means that your assets are not distributed according to your wishes. This is why it is crucial to have a legal Will document, so that in the event of your death, your assets are distributed as you want.
There’s no point having a Will if it can’t be located, & this is unfortunately very common.
