At Melinda Griffiths Lawyers, we are adept in matters relating to elder law, including wills, estates and probate.
End of life legal planning, including wills and estates, can be sensitive and complex matters. At Melinda Griffiths Lawyers, we take the time to listen to your concerns and understand your situation before tailoring our services to meet your unique needs.
Your unique story and experiences are central to our approach, and we will work diligently to ensure that your legal needs and goals are met.
Having a valid will ensures that your assets are passed to those you care about. Without a valid will, your assets may not be distributed according to your wishes.
A valid will reflects your real intentions and ensures that assets are distributed appropriately and reduces unnecessary stress and disputes in the family. We are committed to ensuring your estate plan is legally sound, and that your assets are distributed as you request.
Power Of Attorney
A Power of Attorney allows the attorney to manage your financial affairs. It is important that you obtain advice as to the power that your attorney has on your behalf to ensure you appoint the most appropriate person to act in your best interests.
We can help you understand the different types of Power of Attorney, including Enduring Power of Attorney and General Power of Attorney, and help with the process of appointing a suitable attorney. If you already have a Power of Attorney in place, we can also assist with its administration or revocation.
Guardianship is a legal arrangement wherein a person is appointed to make decisions on another person’s behalf, usually when that person is unable to make decisions for themselves due to age, disability or illness.
We can assist you with all aspects of guardianship, including application, contesting proposed arrangements, and review of existing arrangements.
If someone has passed away the executor must obtain a grant of probate from the court. The probate provides authority to the executor to administer the estate in accordance with the will.
We will work with you to create a comprehensive estate plan that meets your unique needs and goals. This includes drafting wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives, and other estate planning documents.
When a loved one passes away, it’s a difficult and emotional time. We will assist you in the probate process and administration of the estate. This includes obtaining probate, collecting and distributing assets, and settling any outstanding debts.
We help senior Australians and their families navigate legal issues related to ageing, such as guardianship, conservatorship, Medicaid planning, and long-term care planning.
