All Documents Included
Will Wizard® couriers to your door the following important documents in a secure Will Wizard portfolio:
Comprehensive 'Testamentary Trust' Wills
Our easy to use online system merges your basic information with our comprehensive Wills that give your nominated beneficiaries the option to receive their inheritance in a testamentary trust that they control.
We only require basic information such as names and dates of birth. We do not require any asset or financial details. Comprehensive Wills like ours provide broad authorities to executors to take control of your assets in whatever form they take after your death. This means you don't have to update your Wills as your assets change over time. For parents, our Wills also account for any children you have or adopt in the future.
Testamentary trusts are recommended by lawyers because they can provide tax minimisation opportunities and can help protect inherited wealth from third parties threats, such as following a divorce, de facto break-up or bankruptcy.
Testamentary trusts can last for 80 years and can be transferred across generations.
Easy Signing Instructions
Making sure that your Wills are signed and witnessed correctly is a critical step as it ensures your Wills become valid legal documents. Before a Will is signed and witnesses correctly it is just paper!
