Arnotts Lawyers have been taking instructions for wills, probate and powers of attorney for over 30 years, and more recently enduring guardians. A will is a most important document as it is the only time in your life that you may give away your assets to someone else for nothing.It is important that the intended beneficiaries actually receive the gift contained in the will. Wills need to be properly drafted and properly signed and witnessed. Otherwise, it may be that a deceased person’s wishes will not be carried out. We have had experience in disputes over wills and in particular, have been involved in Family Provisions Act matters. Our lawyers are able to assist executors who are defending claims made upon a deceased estate by disgruntled relatives or spouses. On the other hand, we are also able to assist clients who feel they have not received a fair division of estate assets.
