What is a will and what needs to be
accounted for?

A will is a legal document that states how you wish to distribute your assets, and how you would like to be disposed upon your death. Our wills and estate lawyers Adelaide believe having a will is crucial. This is to ensure your wishes are followed upon your death. If you do not have a will when you pass, your assets can legally be distributed in accordance to a set formula. Some things which you may want to include in your will are:

  • Assets (homes and buildings you own)
  • Details of assets (such as credit card information, insurance details etc.)
  • Investments
  • Division information (full names and accurate details of the recipients)
  • Funeral arrangement instructions
  • Guardianship

Some people also choose to donate a portion of the savings they leave behind to charities and organisations they support. O’Dea lawyers can look at this information with you in greater detail to determine what your best course of action will be.
