ESTATE PLANNING

One of the most important documents that you will produce in your lifetime is a Will. You want your Estate to be administered according to your wishes.  Our lawyers are able to help you produce a Will that is legally valid to ensure that your Beneficiaries will be properly looked after.

The creation of a Will has other purposes beyond administering your estate. Through the execution of a valid Will, you are also able to:

  • Appoint an Executor
  • Make arrangements for Guardianship of any children under the age of 18
  • Make arrangements for your business to ensure that it can continue after your passing or until another buyer can be found
  • Resolve any Tax considerations in regards to your Estate.

McDonald Leong understands the importance of producing a valid Will and can also assist you in the following areas:

  • Preparation of Powers of Attorney
  • Testamentary Trusts
  • Family Trusts 

Additionally, if you need to make a claim against an estate or require assistance with defending deceased estates, you can depend on our team to advise you on the best course of action and represent you in any estate litigation if required.

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Letters of Administration

You might be faced with a situation where a loved one has passed away without a Will and therefore, it becomes necessary to obtain Letters of Administration. The process of obtaining Letters of Administration can be complex, so allow our knowledgable legal team to minimise your burden by obtaining Letters of Administration on your behalf.

Probate

If you have been appointed as an Executor of a Will, the Lawyers at McDonald Leong can help you in obtaining a grant of probate, so your only concern is performing your duties as an executor.
