A Legal Pathway to Will Changes, Variations of Trusts law allows trustees and executors to make alterations to testamentary documents such as wills when all parties involved agree on those changes. The laws governing this practice are relatively complex, but there are advantages to undertaking a variation of a trust. Even a diligently prepared will, particularly one that hasn’t been updated in a reasonable time, can overlook a key issue or miss an important variable. There are ways for a trustee and the beneficiaries to modify a trust or testamentary document to address these needs.When all beneficiaries agree that an important trust variation should be made, our office can help navigate the complex processes of the law.To schedule an initial consultation, contact us today.

Estate Administration

Estate and trust challenges are complex areas of law that often involve litigants and defendants who may be in the throes of family turmoil. These emotionally charged cases are complicated by laws that are often unclear. As a trustee or executor of a will, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the tasks entrusted to you or simply require assistance with some aspects of the administration. Our experienced lawyers are here to help you through all aspects of the process and help ensure the smooth and timely administration of the estate.  Where there is no Will available, we help our clients in the application and acquisition of a certificate of appointment of estate trustee without a Will and making all processes hassle free.
