In this age of political correctness, it seems that humour is a dangerous occupation. Each joke must be carefully scrutinised for potential offence to some minority group, and then sanitised of any disrespect to anyone whose delicate sensibilities might be burdened with the weight of somebody laughing at their expense.

Many people find probate in South Australia to be a confusing and intimidating topic. Some deceased estates in South Australia may not require probate, while others may require a different sort of grant if an executor is not named or a Will cannot be located. Some brave (or foolhardy) souls attempt a do-it-yourself approach by trying to administer the deceased estate of a loved one themselves. This rarely ends well. You’ll save a lot of time and energy if you seek the counsel of a lawyer with extensive knowledge of probate & deceased estates in Adelaide. Learn more:

The longer we live, the better our scientists & doctors will become at improving our life-expectancies. Australia now has one of the highest life expectancies in the world (higher even than USA and UK). As a result we can expect to live longer but we must also expect to require increasing amounts of assistance in our later years. We are likely to rely upon an increasing amount of care towards the end of our lives, and this care will be provided by people who will be in a position to influence us regarding testamentary gifts.

What if you want your children from previous relationships to receive a larger share of the estate than your new spouse? What if you’re worried that your spouse will remarry and pass on the bulk of your estate to a new spouse or their children? You may trust your new spouse to care financially for your children from previous relationships, but what if they become estranged after you’re gone? In such cases, your spouse may decide that your children don’t deserve an inheritance and fail to provide for them. Learn more:

Could there ever be a legal expectation of a “use-by date” for humans? We might scoff at such an outlandish notion, and relegate it to science-fiction, but should we be so quick to dismiss it entirely? If Walt Disney wants to spend his own money to cryogenically freeze his body immediately after his death, in the hope that one day medical science will be able to cure him, then most people would probably shrug and say “So what – it doesn’t affect me.” But what if a person with limited assets wanted to do this, with the effect that their entire deceased estate would be consumed by the expense. Would the law (driven by societal expectation) permit that person’s children to over-rule the deceased’s wishes, switch-off the freezer and spend the savings?

A substantial percentage of “weird Wills” end up being contested in Court, causing family unnecessary stress and delay, and eroding the estate with massive Court and legal costs. Be careful. If you are thinking about writing something ‘weird’ into your Will, you’d better seek legal advice first. Your Will and its contents is a serious matter. Isn’t it worth ensuring that it delivers the outcome that you want? Learn more:
