Writing a Wise Will

"A good will is a will drafted by a person that has been described as the wise and just testator - as opposed to the fond and foolish one." - Morgan Solomon, Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers Director

Lawyer Morgan Solomon says more of us are challenging wills, which has led to more people trying to challenge-proof their wills... easier said than done. Morgan says while it's not possible to create a water-tight will, there are ways to make it wise and just, rather than fond and foolish.

Morgan's top tips for a good will:

1 - Provide for everyone who COULD have a claim to your estate even if you feel they're not entitled.

2 -Talk to your family about the decisions in your will.

3 - Review your will every three years.

4 - Get the will drafted by a professional.
