Things to consider

When making or altering your Will you may like to consider supporting Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd. We have some suggestions to keep in mind while making your decision.

  • When preparing a Will, it is recommended that you seek qualified legal advice from a Solicitor.
  • To make a valid Will you must be at least 18 years of age and of sound mind.
  • Be sure to plan your Will carefully. A Will is a private and personal legal document that needs your consideration.
  • Ensure your Will is current. Consider any changes to your Will and set aside time to make them.
  • Make sure your Will is in a safe place and that someone, such as the executor named or your Solicitor, knows about it. You may consider housing your will at a Bank or legal office.
