ESTATE PLANNING

It is never too early to start planning ahead, especially when it comes to caring for and protecting your loved ones.

If you don’t know where to start, a good place to begin is having a personal Will drawn up. A Will is a written document which provides certainty as to the distribution of your assets upon death. It is crucial that you receive correct advice when drafting your Will as one simple mistake could result in costly complications following your death and could mean that your wishes may not be carried out. You may also consider setting up a trust to protect your assets.

At GML Lawyers, we provide practical tailored advice on a broad range of estate planning matters. Our services include:

• Drafting your will according to your instructions and requirements
• Advising on how to choose an executor
• Updating and reviewing existing Wills
• Drafting Living Wills (also known as ‘Advanced Directives’)
• Explaining what happens in the event you die
• Advising on potential estate claims
• Advising on setting up a family trust and the implications of establishing such a trust

We can also help you make plans for what should be done if you are incapacitated by illness, injury or age using a document called an Enduring Power of Attorney, which allows someone else to act on your behalf with valid legal authority. If needed, our law firm can assist with managing your affairs on your behalf.

Based in Auckland, our lawyers are dedicated to providing quality services and ensuring your wishes are respected. We do this by getting to know you and your personal circumstances thoroughly, so we can create tailored advice which falls in line with your needs and wants.

If you are wanting to take the first step in protecting your family’s future, get in touch with us today.

Recently I had reason to search for a local lawyer to represent me in my new role as a widow.
Finding Carol Livingstone during this stressful time has been of huge comfort to me because Carol is a smart, attentive yet totally sympathetic professional.
Completing all the necessary procedures has been made easy for me by Carol, whose guidance is expert and compassionate.
