Creating a Will gives us the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our estate will be distributed according to our wishes. But the desire to avoid the expenses normally associated with Will preparation is tempting some people these days to consider using Do-It-Yourself Will Kits. At first look, DIY Will kits might seem to be cheaper and save some time and travel involved in having a legal professional prepare a Will, BUT the savings in time and money could be illusory if there are even minor mistakes or unforeseen events that cause the Will to be invalid. Remember: any mistakes you make will only become apparent after you’re dead, and it’s too late to fix them. Learn more:

Lots of people misunderstand how asset protection works. Some people believe asset protection makes them “judgment proof.” Even if your assets are protected, you may still cop an adverse court judgment. In some cases, efforts you have made to protect your assets can be overturned. Learn more:

Like most developed countries, Australia’s population is ageing as a result of sustained low fertility and increasing life expectancy. This has resulted in proportionally fewer children in the population and a proportionally larger increase in those aged 65 and over. Over the 20 years between 1994 and 2014, the proportion of the population aged 65 years and over increased from 11.8% to 14.7%. This group is projected to increase more rapidly over the next decade, as further cohorts of baby boomers turn 65. Learn more:

Perhaps you intend to create a Will but just haven’t gotten around to it, or maybe the size of your estate is such that you don’t think you need one. “Dying intestate” is the legal term for dying without a Will or leaving a Will that does not adequately deal with all of your property. Learn more:

Given the increased incidence of dementia in the developed world, as a consequence of longer life expectancies, it’s worth thinking through and communicating to your loved ones your attitudes toward your care and quality of life if you develop dementia. Would you prioritise in-home care above all else, or would care delivered in a facility be agreeable if it improved your spouse’s quality of life? Would you want your spouse or other loved ones to try to care for you themselves for as long as possible, or would you rather they delegated those responsibilities to paid caregivers, assuming the family finances could support it?

There are categories of persons who may be eligible to challenge a Will, however, challenging a Will is difficult and rare. It is far more probable that, if a challenge is to be made, it would not be to challenge the Will but to challenge the estate. A beneficiary is sometimes disappointed with their share of what they receive under a will. It may be less than what they feel is fair, or they may not receive anything at all. Beneficiaries can also suffer hardship when someone dies without a will. The main type of challenge to a deceased estate is where a disappointed beneficiary claims that insufficient provision has been made for him/her in the Will. Learn more:

Rod Genders Podcast Episode #1: What Is Testamentary Capacity? Medical science is keeping us alive for longer than ever before, and the Australian population is ageing fast. Dementia already affects approximately 160 000 Australians. Dementia affects about 10% of those aged over 65 years, and 20% of those over 80 years suffer from severe dementia. Frighteningly, Alzheimer’s Australia says we can expect a 300% increase in the numbers of dementia patients in the next 30 years. Senior Australian lawyer Rod Genders discusses how mental health affects a person’s legal capacity to make decisions in their own best interests. Learn more:

Making a Will is a serious business, right? It details how you wish your estate to be distributed, who benefits and by how much. … because our last post Weird Probate Issues was so popular, here we go again … But we can still chuckle at the efforts of other people when they outrageously stuff-up their own estate plans. (We’ll suppress our schadenfreude with the thought that this is all educational. ‘Schadenfreude’ is the German term for the guilty pleasure derived from another person’s misfortune.) Here are a few of the strangest bequests and most bizarre stipulations found in some weird and wacky Wills.

Failing to keep your estate planning documents safe can cause major complications, for you and your family. In South Australia, the simple form of Probate, known as a Grant of Probate in Common Form requires production and surrender of the Last Will and Testament of the deceased. This means that the original signed document must be located as a matter of priority. Otherwise the executor may not be able to deal with the assets of the deceased. Learn more:
