Do you need a will in Queensland?

A will is an important legal document that allows you to specify how your property and assets will be distributed after your death. In Queensland, as in other states and territories in Australia, having a will is important because it ensures that your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are provided for in the way that you want.

There are several reasons why it is important to have a will in Queensland:

  1. To distribute your property and assets: Without a will, your property and assets will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy, which are determined by the State or Territory in which your property is held. This may not align with your wishes, and could result in your loved ones not receiving what you intended them to. A will allows you to specify exactly how your property and assets should be distributed.
  2. To appoint a guardian for your children: If you have children under the age of 18, a will allows you to appoint a guardian to take care of them in the event of your death. This is important because, without a will, the State or Territory government or Court will decide who will take care of your children, and that person may not be the one you would have chosen.
  3. To avoid disputes and conflict: Having a will can help to avoid disputes and conflict amongst your loved ones after your death. Provided your will is drawn by a competent lawyer, it will provide clear instructions on how your property and assets should be distributed, which can help to prevent disagreement and confusion.

Overall, having a will in Queensland is important because it allows you to control how your property and assets are distributed after your death, appoint a guardian for your children, and avoid disputes and conflict among your loved ones. It is strongly recommended that everyone, 18 years and over, have a valid will in place.

Case Example – David

Defending a defaced will is still valid

David’s will was marked and damaged. According to Queensland law, to be valid, a will must be clean and unmarked otherwise the testator will be deemed as being intestate (not having a will).

Case Example – Celia

Proving a disappointed beneficiary had no case

Celia’s will was challenged by her daughter who had been excluded. We successfully represented Celia’s estate to defend her wishes. To do this, we we able to prove that the daughter was wealthy in her own right.

Case Example – Margaret

Proving an unsigned copy of will existed

Margaret had accidentally destroyed her most recent will but her brother owned an unsigned copy. We were able to convince the Court to accept the unsigned copy as legitimate.
