Importance of a Will

How To Make A Will

Making a will (your Last Will and Testament) is not as difficult as you may think. But you've probably put it off because you believed you'd need a lawyer to write it and would have to pay a minimum of $500 to get started. It doesn't have to be that way.

Nevertheless, there are a few important factors that must be considered for a will to be valid and legally binding in Australia. They are:

  • The person making the Will must be at least 18 years of age
  • The person must have a full intention to make the Will
  • The Will must be made voluntarily without any sort of coercion or pressure from another person or persons
  • The person must understand the contents of the Will, and approve of what is written
  • Two witnesses (who are over 18 and who are not mentioned as a beneficiary in the Will and not the partner of a beneficiary) must sign, and acknowledge the Will in the presence of the person making the will. They must also see the Will maker sign the Will.

If all the above are true, then the will is legal in Australia.

  • Enter details about your beneficiaries (those who you wish to receive something in your Will)
  • Complete the details for who will be your Executor or Executors - the person who will read and act on your will after your death
  • Then the important part is to allocate your remaining property (estate) to your beneficiaries.
  • There are some other sections that will appear based upon information you previously entered, such as pet details and guardian details.

  • After a successful payment, you can download your Will document package directly to your computer or device.
  • Once you have read through the documents and are happy with everything, you need to sign and date the document in the presence of two witnesses who must also sign where required.
  • Make as many copies of the signed Will as required, but make sure you keep the original signed copy somewhere safe. It is the original copy that will be needed after your death so your executor can request what is called a 'grant of probate' so that your remaining estate can be distributed to beneficiaries.
