Preparing a Will
CopperTree Family Law is your local Central Coast
Although it’s not something we like to think about, it is essential to plan for the future distribution of your assets. If you die without a Will, the law decides who receives your money. However, this might not be in line with your wishes.
Even if you have an existing Will, significant events such as re-marriage can make that Will void.
As part of the Will planning process, you appoint an executor. We can explain the duties of an executor so that you can make an informed decision.
As well as dealing with your finances, preparing a Will allows you to plan for the care of young children and communicate funeral and other preferences.

Power of Attorney
Drawing up a Power of Attorney allows somebody else to manage your assets and financial affairs while you are alive. This gives you peace of mind that someone you trust will be able to make financial decisions on your behalf and may also allow them to make these decisions if you later lack the capacity. You can also make a Limited Power of Attorney so that somebody can act for you on specific financial matters (such as buying a house) while you are on holiday or overseas. Contact us so we can discuss your options.
Appointing an Enduring Guardian
While a Power of Attorney takes care of financial decisions, you may want to appoint an Enduring Guardian to make lifestyle, health and medical decisions when you are not capable of doing this yourself. They might include decisions about where you live and what medical treatment you receive. Appointing an Enduring Guardian is an opportunity to communicate your wishes about these matters as well as having somebody to advocate for you in future. Contact us so we can walk you through it.
