  • Reviewing and updating your Will.


  • Reviewing and updating Superannuation Death Nominations so that in the event of your death, that the Trustee is obliged to make payment of your superannuation to your nominated beneficiary.  A Binding Nomination is usually only valid for a period of three years at which time it must be renewed.


  • You may wish to change your name following the breakdown of a marriage or relationship and this can be achieved fairly readily under the law.
