Estate Planning

You’ve worked hard during your lifetime, so it is important that you carefully consider what will happen to your legacy when you pass away or become incapacitated, ensuring your assets go to the right people, in the right way. This process is called Estate Planning.

Estate Planning is a three-part process involving:

  1. The identification of your personal assets and liabilities and the assets in your broader estate.
  2. The identification of potential concerns and risks that could change circumstances significantly.
  3. Designing and implementing a structured plan that incorporates your wishes and accommodates all variables.

Our legal professionals will provide professional legal guidance consistent with the latest legislation and developments, to ensure that there are no complications with your estate when you pass.

Probate and Estate Administration

If you are appointed as an executor of a Will or a loved one has died without leaving a valid Will, the Morrows Legal Team can provide you with advice in understanding your role and responsibilities and ensure you meet your legal obligations. Our lawyers can assist you by obtaining a grant of probate, grant of letters of administration or reseal from the Supreme Court of Victoria and all other aspects of estate administration during what can be an emotional and challenging time. Our experience allows us to support and guide you through the estate administration process with sensitivity and professionalism.

Estate Litigation

With Wills being subject to challenge on various grounds, the Morrows Legal Succession lawyers can guide you in navigating this complex and challenging area of the law. We have experience in acting for executors who wish to defend an estate against a claim or conversely contest a Will on behalf of beneficiaries who have been insufficiently provided for.
