Write or amend your Will when your circumstances change
Everyone needs to have a Will – and when there’s a major change in your life, it’s a good time to update your Will and make sure it’s current. Remember, a Will helps prevent arguments about your assets and how they are to be divided after you pass away. And costly legal and Executor fees can be avoided by having a Will.
Quick and easy online form
You can literally be done in 20 minutes, just:
- Insert your name and address
- Nominate someone to carry out your wishes (called your “Executor”)
- Specify who you want to inherit your assets (called your “Beneficiaries”)
- List any special gifts (e.g. charities, close friends, etc.)
- Add any special funeral arrangements
Online video instructions and telephone support
There’s a short online video with instructions on how to complete the online form. We step you through the form and explain any legal terms used (like “Executor” and “Beneficiary”). Then we explain how to sign your Will and where to store it.
And you can always call us if you have any questions.
Includes a Codicil form (to make small changes to your Will)
A simple, 1-page Codicil form is included in the Will Kit. Use this to make minor changes to your Will. For example:
- Changing your Executor
- Adding a Beneficiary
- Adding a gift, etc.
Is the Will Kit right for me?
Easy. Just use the online form to make your Will. Then refresh the online form and use it again with your wife’s details. These are called “mirror” Wills – where you leave your combined assets to your wife in the event you die first; and your wife leaves your combined assets to you in the event she dies first.
I’m getting separated (or divorced) …
Your Will is not automatically revoked by divorce. However, new legislation now means that any references to your former spouse in your Will are automatically revoked. So if you divorce, you will need to amend or write a new Will.
Our Will Kit is designed for straightforward situations. For more complex situations – you own property overseas; you are part owner of a business; you are a beneficiary of a family trust; you have a “mixed” family with children from former relationships; you have disabled children – we recommend you consult a specialist lawyer.
I’m getting married (or re-married) …
In most Australian States, your Will is automatically revoked by marriage. So if you marry, it is more than likely you will need to amend or write a new Will.
