Estate planning is planning for the effective distribution of your assets and affairs when you pass away.

Estate planning comprises of a range of legal documents including a Will, Superannuation Death Benefit Nomination, Power of Attorney, Enduring Guardianship and Advance Care Directive. Setting out what you wish to happen to your assets and affairs in such documents will also likely avoid estate disputes.
