On 19 August 2011, the Law Society of NSW will be promoting Will Awareness Day – an initiative focused on providing the community with free legal information on Wills and other estate planning matters, all in the name of increasing awareness of the importance of Wills.
Having a legally valid Will helps you to decide how your possessions will be distributed after you die, which can be an important consideration especially if you leave behind family, friends and other loved ones. If you do not have a Will, do not assume that your possessions will be distributed according to your wishes. Under current legislation, if you die without a Will, your estate will be divided according to a Government formula which may not reflect what you really want.
Choosing to write your will is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and it is important to seek proper legal advice so that your financial and personal circumstances are covered.
Phang Legal will be holding a free information session at the Harris Park Community Centre on 19 August 2011 at 10am. The Centre is located at 11 Albion Street, Harris Park NSW 2150. All are welcomed to attend.
