We offer a full range of services in this area of law. Nobody ever wants to have to think about such matters and we aim to make this process as painless as possible. As with so many areas of law, modern Probate law and Taxation is very complex and it is important to consider wealth management on an ongoing basis. Having dealt with very complex and often novel cases in this area including High Court applications, planning ahead is essential today.
Making a Will is the most important of a number of steps we advise clients in managing their financial affairs. A standard Will costs between €150-€200 plus VAT. Prior to attending our office we will ask you to consider who will be the Executor of your estate, what assets you hold and who you would like to benefit from your estate. Where you have minor children it is always advisable that you talk to the people you intend to nominate as testamentary guardians and trustees in advance of naming them in your Will. Once we have sufficient information we can then advise you about the best approach to drafting your Will.
Providing a Power of Attorney to a trusted person is another very important matter to take care of during your life. With new legislation currently being brought in, we can now advise on a range of documents which you can consider from a ‘do not resuscitate’ power through to a full ‘enduring power of attorney’ giving over all financial and care decision making powers to a loved one or trusted person.
