To protect your financial interest and that of your family including minor children from financial hardship it is important that you leave your directions in a Will as to how you would like your assets distributed.
If you do not have a Will and were to pass away this is known as ‘Intestacy”. The State legislation will dictate how your Estate will be administered. This can be costly, assets not distributed in accordance to your wishes.
