Is estate planning the same as a Will?

Estate planning is more than just a Will.

Whilst the creation of a comprehensive, well-designed Will is a core component of estate planning, a Will can’t do everything. An Estate Plan needs to cover off on all your assets (some of which are not governed by your Will) and your wishes regarding your health and financial decisions if you were incapacitated. Your house, investment properties, superannuation, insurances, trusts/companies, and personal items all intersect with multiple areas of the law and they only work together to achieve your wishes when you have a thorough estate plan in place. You minimise your risk of something going wrong when you have the assistance of an experienced estate planning lawyer. Furthermore, there are often asset protection and tax strategies that we can implement to help prevent your assets from being eroded and all your hard efforts lost.
