Contested Wills in Port Macquarie & Wauchope
Searson Shannon & Co Pty Limited offer a professional, cost effective and personalised service for estate planning and litigation matters.
Making Your Will
Wills are important legal documents that everyone will need at some point in time. Preparing a legally valid Will is the best way to ensure that your assets are gifted in accordance with your wishes.
Powers of Attorney & Enduring Guardianship
We would also recommend that you also consider preparing Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship documentation. Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianships are documents which can safeguard you and your family against additional worry in difficult times.
Contesting A Will
Although the law recognises that a person has the right to designate who inherits their property, there are a number of reasons which allow you to contest a Will.
Our expert estate litigation team will be able to advise you whether you have a valid and viable claim, inform you about your options and guide you through the process.
It is important to remember that strict time limits apply. Please contact our office for further information.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney legal appoints a person or persons of your choice, to manage your financial and legal affairs while you are alive.
An appointment of an enduring guardian appoints a person or persons to make personal or lifestyle decisions for you when you are not capable of doing this for yourself.
