Estate Planning Matter. Our client attended our office in Toukley to update his Will. Although he had recently received a worrying prognosis from his doctor, he was well and alert. Within 48 hours of the appointment, our client was in hospital and advised he only had days left to live.
While our client had a Will in place, his circumstances had considerably changed and the beneficiaries named in his Will were no longer appropriate. We needed to get his updated Will executed before he passed away to ensure all his new wishes would be met.
What We Did
As the client had no close family or friends, Mikaela liaised directly with the hospital and the social workers to arrange a suitable time to attend the hospital. We then saw the client in hospital and executed his new Will.
We managed to have the client’s Will updated four days before his passing, so he was able to go with peace of mind and closure.
