Recent surveys indicate that over half of Australians do not have a Will.
Of these people, 40% had no idea what happens if they die before creating a Will.
Many people thought they were “too young” to need a Will. Others simply didn’t want to think about dying.
Whatever the reason, dying without a Will is dangerous! It creates unnecessary confusion, conflict and costs for your loved ones.
Disputes are much more common without a Will.
You may think you don’t have assets. However, most Australians have life insurance, superannuation and a bank account. Without a Will, there are assets to fight over.
The legal costs of disputing a Will are very high. Your loved ones could be fighting for years and spend tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The costs of drafting a Will are very low. For a small sum you can obtain expert advice, reduce your stress and secure the future for your children.
Spare your family and friends unnecessary conflict, chaos and costs. Create a Will today.
