Defend your Will against challenges, so your wealth ends up in the hands of the people you want to benefit.

You have worked hard to build your wealth so the next generation is financially secure. It should be your choice as to who gets what. You’re aware that certain people can challenge your Will, and you are concerned that this may happen to you.

Andreyev Lawyers will help you understand where the threats are coming from, and put in place robust strategies to defend your wishes.

With your defenses in place, you can rest assured that you have done everything possible to pass on your wealth to the people you intend to benefit.

Understand the risks of a challenge to your Will.

Put in place effective strategies to defend your wishes.

Ensure your wealth goes to the people you wish to benefit.

So you think you have the right to choose who gets your assets when you die?

Most people think they have the right to choose who gets their wealth when they die. However, the Government has decided that certain people can apply to the Court to override your wishes. This includes family members and people who have been financially dependent on you.

We will help you structure your estate planning to minimise the chances of someone successfully challenging your Will.

We will help you do everything you can to ensure your wealth ends up where you intend.

You have made sacrifices to build your wealth. Make sure the effort was worthwhile.

You’re a successful business person who has accumulated material wealth. You feel strongly about being able to make your own decisions in life, absent outside interference.

You have thought carefully about who should benefit from your wealth and to what extent, (and who should not). You believe that the Government and the Courts should keep their noses out of your business. You are aware that the law gives certain people the right to challenge your Will and upset your plan, and you want to take whatever action you can to prevent this from happening.

If you don’t carefully plan for the potential challenge to your estate plan, then chances are it will occur and be successful. The people you wish to benefit will then need to endure the uncertainty and stress of defending your wishes, and may ultimately end up with less than you intend.

Leaving things to chance is not an option.

You want to give your wealth to the people you choose. You want to defend against a challenge from someone who wants to override your wishes.

If you don’t take appropriate precautions then your estate plan will be wide open to potential challenges and interference by people you do not wish to benefit.

How we will help

We will help you put in place effective strategies that contemplate the likely basis for challenges to your Will. This includes taking care to ensure your estate planning documents are valid, limiting the extent of assets that can be subject to a challenge, and appropriately documenting your reasons for how you have allocated your wealth.

With solid strategies in place to enable your estate plan to withstand the foreseen challenges, you can rest easy knowing that your wealth has the best chance of ending up benefitting the people you intend.

You should have the right to choose exactly who gets your wealth when you die. You are best placed to determine who is worthy of your financial support and who is not. The problem is that the Government has determined if you have wealth and someone related to you is in need, then you must support them – as a matter of ‘public policy’. Even when you die you must support the Welfare State.

Although we cannot change the law, we can help you navigate it in the best way possible.

We will help you put in place a legally valid estate plan, which minimises the extent of your assets open to attack. We will also help you document the sound reasoning behind your plan so that the Court can hear your reasoning and take your wishes into account before seeking to interfere with your choices.
