Frequently Asked Questions

A will is a document detailing how a person’s property is to be distributed on death. A will also appoints someone who will look after the administration of the terms of the will.

In the State of Queensland, if you die without a Will, the law will decide for you. This means:

  • You do not get a say in how to distribute your estate
  • Your loved ones have to deal with the complications with your estate
  • It can lead to significant costs and delays

You can avoid all these above, if you call us today!

A Smarter Will is a comprehensive Will with the option to create a Testamentary Discretionary Trust. For the people receiving your estates (Beneficiaries), this will give them better protection and more flexibility.

  1. Flexibility
  2. Using income streaming to save taxes
  3. Asset Protection
  4. Comprehensive protection by excluding people
  5. Preserving Centrelink entitlements for your beneficiaries
  6. Reducing tax for foreign beneficiaries

In a nutshell, Probate is the official recognition from the Supreme Court of Queensland that a Will is legally valid.

The grant of Probate is a legal document that tells other intuitions (e.g. banks, land title office) that you, the executor(s), are authorised to manage the estate of a deceased person in accordance with their Will.

When principals appoint attorneys to act on their behalf, a power of attorney is made. The power of attorney becomes “enduring”, because even when the principal loses capacity after the date of granting the power, the power of attorney remains in existence, hence being called enduring.

  • Any person over the age of 18 (as suggested by the Public Trustee Qld)
  • Any person who has a serious or life-long illness
  • Any person working in a leadership position (Company directors, Owners or Managers)
  • Any person who has others relying on them
  • Any person who wants to have peace of mind for their future

In Queensland, the Advance Health Directive is a document that shows your wishes with medical treatment when you are not able to make decisions. An example of this is includes a desire to be taken off life support in certain situations.

  • It is an essential part of your end-of-life care.
  • This is a formal document which shows your desires and wishes for your care that truly reflect your beliefs and values.
  • Once a health directive is in place, it cannot be overridden by health professionals or family members, so your wishes are truly respected.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Ascent Lawyers for my personal injury case back in 2019. All the lawyers demonstrated high level of professionalism throughout all the stages of engagement. Ascent Lawyers was not only able to provide tailored legal advice, but they had been extremely informative and transparent during the entire process. This is particularly extraordinary when you consider the no-win-no-fee business model for PI matters. My case, in the end, was concluded with excellent results. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the whole team for their hard-work and professionalism, as well as Kira and Mengpei's close involvement with my case. I think their 5-star google review record does not lie. I would also recommend this firm to anyone.
