The requirements for making a will legally valid and recognised by The Supreme Court of NSW include:

  • The will must be in writing, either typed or handwritten.
  • The will must be signed by the will-maker or by some other person in the presence of and at the direction of the will-maker.
  • The will-maker’s signature must be made or acknowledged in the presence of two or more witnesses, present at the same time.
  • At least two of those witnesses attest (witness) and sign the will in the presence of the will-maker (but not necessarily in the presence of each other).
  • The signature of the will-maker or person signing at the direction of, and in the presence of the will-maker must be made with the intention of executing the will.

Choosing a will kit to prepare your own will should only be considered if your circumstances are simple.

For many people this is not the case.

If the will is not completed by correctly, an application to the Court will be required and this process may cost thousands of dollars.

Obtaining the advice and assistance of a specialist wills and estate lawyer can help reduce the risk of a contested will.

What price are you prepared to pay for your own peace of mind and the peace of mind of your family?

I found Heckenberg Lawyers to be very professional and knowledgeable. Graeme took the time and explained the entire process to me. He was never pushy nor was he just after "his cut" as so many other practices are. He was at all times looking out for the best interest of the estate and not wanting it to be eaten. I found his staff to be extremely thorough and attentive. I would have no hesitations to recommend this practice if you want the best outcome possible.

As the executor of an estate, I engaged Graeme and his team to handle a family provision claim and probate matter. I found Graeme to be professional and knowledgeable. Throughout the entire process, Graeme treated all parties involved with respect. He was always willing to take my concerns onboard and never pushy. Highly recommended.
