Wills and Powers of Attorney

At MCG Legal we take the time to discuss and advise you when it comes to such an important decision as preparing your Will and Power of Attorney. If you have not made a legal Will, the time of your passing can cause a great deal of stress for your loved ones as they go through court to administer your Estate. There are many aspects to any Will and it’s important you allow us time to thoroughly discuss these with you.

Will Disputes

If you feel the Will of a deceased estate does not fairly provide for yourself and the family circumstances of the deceased you can make a claim to contest the Will. This is called a ‘family provision claim’ and is sought to rectify Wills whereby the Will maker had a moral obligation towards a party whose entitlement is not enough for their maintenance and support.

Our Wills and Estate lawyers are experienced in the complicated process of contesting a Will and can represent you with compassion and professionalism.
