Planning for your family’s future is essential and at AbsoluteLaw, we help clients plan for the unexpected so that you can ensure your loved ones will be secure and taken care of, whatever happens. Our team has the knowledge, understanding and experience required to assure clients that their affairs will be handled according to their wishes after death. We will guide you through all of the issues involved, offering tailored advice on the options that are available to you to protect your assets and provide for the ones you love.
We take pride in providing superior advice and services in the following areas of estate and succession law:
We all accept that one day we will die. When that day comes, if you do not have a Will your assets may be distributed in a way that you would never have intended. When our solicitors prepare your Will, you can be assured that your assets will be distributed with ease and according to your wishes. Our solicitors have experience in all aspects of estate planning, from considering and advising you on the effect of your death on your assets and liabilities, to drafting and advising you on your Will and the relevant laws affecting your will. With our assistance, you can be confident of attaining a Will designed to achieve the desired management of your estate, finances and assets.
Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a legal document authorising another person, such as a trusted friend or relative, to act on your behalf in your affairs. Our solicitors can provide comprehensive advice and assistance in drafting a Power of Attorney to guarantee the management and protection of your financial and personal welfare in the future.
Whether you wish to exercise greater control over the distribution of your assets, provide for a disabled or underage child or simply protect your family wealth, trusts can be an effective method of preserving property or money for you and your loved ones. At AbsoluteLaw, we offer clear and constructive advice and guidance about the operation and benefits of these structures, helping our clients to choose and establish the appropriate trust for their circumstances.
When a loved one dies, those left behind are charged with the task of administering the deceased’s estate. If you find yourself in such a position, you are likely to have many questions about how to proceed. At AbsoluteLaw, we understand that individuals may feel overwhelmed by estate and trust administration. We will guide you through the issues and process from start to finish, offering advice and assistance with all areas of estate administration, including obtaining grants of probate and letters of administration, discharging debts and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
Contested Wills and Estates
We are skilled at conciliating Will and probate disputes. If you believe you have been unfairly denied an inheritance, or that an estate has been administered improperly or unfairly, we will advise you on whether you have a valid claim and, if so, whether it makes financial sense to pursue it. We also represent executors, trustees and estate administrators in cases where a Will is being challenged. It is our experience that through proper advice and guidance such proceedings can potentially be avoided.
