Wills & Probate
We can provide you with expert advice in relation to Wills, estate planning and estate administration matters. The importance of experienced legal advice in these areas is critical.
Ian McCubbin is a Master Willmaker and has drafted many thousands of Wills ranging from the very simple to the extremely complicated. We are experts in this field and we can ensure your testamentary wishes will be met and your valuable assets are protected. When it comes to making a Will, the difference between receiving expert advice or poor advice or a "home made" Will can literally cost your estate thousands of dollars. Why take the risk?
Probate & Deceased Estates
We deal extensively with the administration of deceased estates including obtaining a grant of Probate or Letters of Administration (where there is no Will), Property Survivorship & Transmission Applications, administration and distribution of the assets of an estate, advice as to disputes and contesting a Will and on intestacy law.
Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney can be of substantial benefit to you and your family during your lifetime. There are several different types of Powers of Attorney in Victoria including Enduring Financial Powers of Attorney & Medical Powers of Attorney. There are a number of different options that can be incorporated into these documents to fully protect you and your assets and to make them work effectively, but only if you have the right legal advice.
Wills incorporating Testamentary Trusts have become a favourite tool for financial planners to help future generations make huge Tax savings, but they are not generally well known or understood. We can show you how incorporating a Testamentary Trust into your Will can save your beneficiaries thousands of dollars of potential future income tax and capital gains tax. Our fees for the preparation of a Testamentary Trust are usually well below the large fees that are charged when a Testamentary Trust is purchased as part of a "package" through a financial adviser.
