Wills, Estates & Succession Planning

Obtaining legal advice on Wills, Estate issues and Succession Planning is essential and can bring you peace of mind.

It’s understandable that succession planning is something people don’t really like to think about, but having an effective will is very important for both you and your family to create the comfort that comes from settling the future of your estate. Laws around succession and inheritance are complex, and there are many important decisions that need to be made and should not be left to chance. From advice on constructing an initial will through to probate and the administration of deceased estates, Clelands Lawyers Adelaide is here to assist you every step of the way.

Disputes can sometimes arise over an estate, and in such situations we are here to provide the advice you need and to advocate on your behalf when a will is contested. This can be a difficult time for families, so it’s important to seek expert advice at the earliest opportunity.
