Wills & Estate Planning

What’s the Cost of Making a Will With a Lawyer in Brisbane?

The cost of making a will with a lawyer in Brisbane depends on how you want to make your will and whether it includes enduring power of attorney. As having a will is essential to your estate planning and helps to protect those you leave behind, it is important to have a specialist will lawyer help you to prepare your will. 

While will kits are available and are often very affordable, they are no substitute for the expertise of an experienced legal practitioner specialising in wills and estates planning. As mistakes in the preparation of wills (or not having a will at all) can prevent your loved ones from inheriting what you intend to leave for them, it is imperative that a will is professionally prepared. This is especially the case if your estate is significant, you plan to include many parties in your will, or you are currently separated from your spouse or de facto partner. 

At McCarthy Durie Lawyers in Brisbane, our highly skilled team includes dedicated wills and estates lawyers who can help you with all aspects of preparing a will and estate/succession planning. We provide trusted advice to help you put your affairs in order and make informed decisions concerning your will and estate. Having one of our experienced will and estates lawyers in Brisbane prepare your will is cost-effective and can be even more affordable if both husband and wife prepare their wills at the same time. 

Protect Your Family — Prepare Your Will and Estate Today 

It is easy to procrastinate and put off preparing a will until a later date, but what if you passed away without a will — what would happen to your family? Without a strong will in place, your estate would be distributed in line with Queensland law, which may not be how you intended. To prevent mistakes and ensure your loved ones are taken care of, contact the wills and estate lawyers at McCarthy Durie Lawyers in Brisbane today.
