Simple Estate Planning
A simple estate plan can consist of a Will, Enduring Power of Attorney and / or an Enduring Power of Guardianship and even an Advanced Health Directive.
A Will, generally speaking, takes 2 forms, a simple Will or a Testamentary Trust Will.
A Will is only effective upon the death of the testator (person making the Will). However circumstances may arise where you have not yet legally died, but are incapable of dealing with yourself or your assets. This is when an Enduring Power of Attorney (assets) or an Enduring Power of Guardianship (health and lifestyle) will allow that person to appoint someone who they trust will look after those things for them during their time of incapacity.
