I had Hayley Kennedy do my divorce and property settlement which included some complicated parenting orders. Hayley was thorough, caring and explained things really well during this difficult time . I appreciated her knowledge and advice that really helped me sort out issues I didn’t even know I should - to avoid problems down the track. Great lawyer!

A testamentary trust is a trust that is created within a Will.  It can be used to specify how your funds are spent, for example leaving money until they reach a certain age or bestowing a family air loom provided a beneficiary gets married. The terms and complexity of testamentary trusts can vary greatly depending upon the circumstances that they address. More commonly, they are created to help ensure ongoing education, maintenance, residence, health care needs and daily support for loved ones. Less commonly, testamentary trust may also provide additional benefits such as tax advantages in certain situations or even help to protect your estate if a beneficiary is in bankruptcy.

At Forge Legal, our dedicated Wills and Estates experts can not only help you make the right choices but also use testamentary trusts effectively to protect the best interests and get the best possible outcomes for your family and loved ones.
