Testamentary Trust Will

Evolve Legal -

At Ramsden Family Law we specialise in providing comprehensive estate planning services, including the preparation of Testamentary Trust Wills. A Testamentary Trust Will is a powerful tool that allows you to protect and manage your assets for the benefit of your loved ones long after you’re gone. With our expertise and personalised approach, we will help you create a tailored estate plan that ensures your family’s financial security and peace of mind.

If you have assets in excess of $1 million dollars, a Testamentary Trust Will is most likely the best option.

Understanding Testamentary Trust Wills

What is a Testamentary Trust?

A testamentary trust is a trust established within a will that only comes into effect upon the death of the will-maker. Unlike a standard Will, which distributes assets outright to beneficiaries, a testamentary trust will creates a separate legal entity to hold and manage assets for the benefit of designated beneficiaries.

Benefits of Testamentary Trust Wills

Testamentary trust wills offer a range of benefits, including asset protection, tax advantages, and flexibility in managing distributions to beneficiaries. By incorporating a testamentary trust into your Will, you can safeguard your assets from creditors, provide for beneficiaries with special needs, and minimise tax liabilities for future generations.

Our Testamentary Trust Will Preparation Process

1. Initial Consultation

Our testamentary trust will preparation process begins with an initial consultation, where we’ll discuss your estate planning goals, family dynamics, and financial situation. During this consultation, we’ll assess whether a testamentary trust is suitable for your needs and explain the potential benefits and considerations.

2. Customised Trust Design

Based on the information gathered during the initial consultation, our experienced lawyers will design a customised testamentary trust that aligns with your wishes and objectives. We’ll tailor the trust structure to meet your specific requirements, taking into account factors such as asset protection, tax planning, and beneficiary needs.

3. Drafting and Review

Once the trust design is finalised, we’ll draft the necessary legal documents, including your testamentary trust will and trust deed. We’ll carefully review these documents with you to ensure they accurately reflect your intentions and comply with all legal requirements.

4. Execution and Implementation

After finalising your testamentary trust will, we’ll guide you through the execution process, ensuring it is signed and witnessed in accordance with applicable laws. We’ll also provide guidance on funding the trust and implementing any additional estate planning strategies to maximise its effectiveness.
