2020 was a catastrophe. Natural disasters, job losses, COVID-19…
We’re hoping for a better year in 2021 – a fresh start.
We need to reflect, to re-evaluate our relationships, and to discuss what is important in our lives.
It’s time to think about:
1. Making a Will / Update your Will
A Will ensures that, when you die, your assets are distributed according to your wishes. You can also secure the future of your under-18 children by nominating a guardian; this is particularly for blended families and families with children from different relationships.
Research indicates that up to 50% of Australian adults do not have a Will. If you are recently married you will need to update your Will, as marriage in Australia generally revokes any existing Will.
2. Getting a Power of Attorney and an Appointment of Guardian
A Power of Attorney and Appointment of Guardian allow you to nominate somebody to make your financial, medical and personal decisions on your behalf, in the event that you lose the capacity to make decisions due to illness or other factors. Protect yourself against future ill-health by getting these documents.
Dementia is on the rise, so act now before you forget to do so!
3. Getting a Divorce
Life is too short to be unhappy. If you are in a relationship that you would be better off out of, act now. We can help you with divorce, children’s matters, property matters and so on.

As you reflect, re-evaluate and decide, we leave you with this poem:
So, do it. Decide.
Is this the life
you want to live?
Is this the person
you want to love?
Is this the best you can be?
Can you be stronger?
Kinder? More Compassionate?
– Meredith Grey
Have a very happy 2021!
