Wills and Powers of Attorney
There is a larger number of advantages to instructing a Lawyer who is highly experienced in this area. Raewyn can fully explain to you the implications when drafting a Will or giving someone Power of Attorney.
Every year, 1500 people in New Zealand die without a will and over half of all New Zealand adults do not have a will. If you die without making a will, the division of assets is left up to the standard legislation or the Court. This will likely result in your assets being divided up in a way that you didn't specifically want. By letting your family know what you wanted, this will help protect them financially as well as emotionally during this difficult time.
The general rule is, make a will as soon as you have assets or have people in your life that need protecting. Please click here to call Raewyn if you are located in Hamilton or the Waikato and your will is not up to date. Raewyn has a range of experience in drafting wills and can assist you so that you know your family is well protected.
Powers of Attorney
There are two types of enduring Powers of Attorney. One for Care and Welfare and a separate one for Property. If you are in a position where you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, your enduring attorney will make these decisions for you.
