International Estate Planning

International issues in estate planning are becoming more prevalent in today's global community. It is not just high net worth individuals who have assets or interests outside of Australia. If you have assets both in Australia and abroad, we are able to assist you with your estate planning needs. Our team has extensive experience and can help you in this regard.

In some circumstances, it may be appropriate for people to have two Wills, one to deal specifically with Australian assets and another to deal with interests abroad. We are experienced in this area and do work in conjunction with solicitors in other countries where necessary to ensure our client's international estate planning needs are met.

Having two Wills in two different jurisdictions is not common, but nonetheless is entirely possible and certainly appropriate in the right circumstances. Wherever two Wills are being prepared, it is important for you discuss this with us, because there are potential traps that need to be avoided. For example, great care must be taken to ensure the Wills in the different jurisdictions do not inadvertently revoke each other.
