Our Wills & Estate Planning Services

Losing a loved one is heartbreaking, and dealing with estate matters can add to the stress. At Arcuri Turnbull Law, our Deceased Estate Lawyers understand the complexities involved and we’re here to simplify the process for you.

Estate Administration and Probate involve essential legal procedures to manage a deceased person’s estate. These processes grant the executor or administrator the legal authority to handle the estate according to the deceased’s wishes or the laws of intestacy. Complying with legal obligations is crucial during this time.

A Power of Attorney is a legally binding document that allows one person to give another the authority to make decisions on their behalf. These decisions can relate to personal, health, or financial matters, depending on the extent of the power given.

Will & Estate Planning FAQs

It depends on the assets of the Estate. In Queensland, you do not automatically have to apply for Probate if you own property. In New South Wales, if the deceased owns property, then Probate is required.

The process takes about 3-4 months.

We recommend that the funds be distributed after 6 months from the date of death. When Probate is required, this timeframe could be longer.

In Queensland, your estate will be distributed in accordance with the Succession Act Qld 1981. It will be necessary for your next of kin to apply for Letters of Administration of your Estate. This process is similar to obtaining Probate.

In Queensland, your estate will first go to your next of kin, which is your spouse or de facto partner, and issue (children, grandchildren).

No, you do not need to have a new Will prepared each time you or anyone else named in your Will moves address. Your most recent Will is still valid. If you would like however, you can provide the new details to our office in an email and we can add this to your security packet so that your Executors/Beneficiaries can be easily contacted. We recommend that will are reviewed each 3-4 years or more frequently with changes in life like purchase or sale of property, separation or divorce etc.

Yes – we can provide you with a certified copy or copies (as required) of the document as a complimentary service offered by our firm.

You will both need to have new Wills drawn up as separate documents – a Will for you and a Will for your partner.
