We Can Help with All Aspects of Will Preparation
If you live on the Gold Coast and want a say in how your property is distributed after you’re gone, you need an expert wills lawyer – you need Crest Lawyers.
A will is a written document that enables you to communicate how you want your property and assets to be distributed after your passing. However, that’s not its only function.
With a will, you can also name a guardian for your children and give instructions regarding your funeral arrangements. The overarching goal is to ensure that things go smoothly for your loved ones after you’re gone.
At Crest Lawyers, we understand how difficult these decisions can be. That’s why we’ve gathered an experienced and compassionate team of Estate planning lawyers to guide you through the process.
Our team will ensure a seamless process and tell you everything you need to do to keep your wishes in place.
Will Planning Services
As long as you’re over 18 and of sound mind, you can write a will by yourself or with help from an experienced lawyer. However, having a good lawyer ensures that you meet all relevant legal requirements and guarantees a smooth transitionary period when you die.
Writing a will yourself leaves room for errors and omissions. This may lead to problems no grieving family should face, such as familial disputes.
At Crest Lawyers, we have a team of expert wills lawyers that offer the following services:
Amendment of wills
Estate planning advice
Application for Probate or Letters of Administration;
Appointment of executors of an estate
Assisting the executors concerning the administration of the estate.
We will detail all implications of making a will and guide you through the entire process of preparing your will. We can also help you safely keep your documentation. And if the need to update your will arises, we can help you make the necessary changes.
Our Gold Coast wills lawyers take our clients through the essential steps of making a will. Once we let you know the requirements of making a valid will, we help you identify the assets that should be included.
This step is vital because it helps you avoid omitting any part of your estate. It will also help you identify assets that do not fall under your personal estate, like jointly-owned assets, assets held by companies, assets held in trust, etc.
When you don’t properly deal with these kinds of issues, it may have dire consequences, such as family disputes that could have been avoided.
After identifying the available assets, we will then walk you through the process of valuing the assets and apportioning them to the persons you wish. Then, we document these intentions.

The importance of having a will that’s legally binding and effective cannot be stressed enough. At Crest Lawyers, we will help ensure that your family and benefactors are taken care of after your passing.
We understand that the passing of a loved one is never an easy experience. That’s why we help to give your family one less thing to worry about by preparing a professional will that meets your wishes and is smooth to execute.
