One of the biggest worries for families with a family member with a disability is “What will happen when I am not around? Who will be here to look out for my son, daughter, sister, or brother?”
At DLQ, we help you alleviate that worry by assisting you to prepare a will that accounts for your loved one with a disability’s needs for their lifetime.
We believe wills are most effective if you have done some work on developing your vision and plans for a good life for your loved one - a full life that includes secure and ongoing accommodation, support and financial resources as well as having things like a connection to community, friends, family, a valued role, hobbies, holidays, freedom and choice.
If necessary, we also make sure your loved one’s assets are managed and protected in a way that minimises any impact on their pension and eligibility for public housing.
We can also assist people with intellectual and cognitive impairments to have their will and enduring power of attorney prepared.
Our solicitors specialise in estate planning for clients with disability and their families and are well versed in the particular needs, worries and situations that may arise for you when drawing up a will.
