Wills and Powers of Attorney

What is a Will? Why do you need a Will? Should I make a Power of Attorney?

These are common questions which can cause stress and confusion. It is important to have clear information around:

  • When to make a Will
  • How to organise a Will
  • What is important to think about when making a Will
  • What Powers of Attorney are
  • When your Attorney can act and what they can do

This session is designed to give you information about Wills and Powers of Attorney, how they work and what happens if you don’t have them. It will also address common questions and misconceptions as well as touching on related topics such as probate and challenges to Wills.

Presented by:
