Preparation for many situations and events is a big part of our lives, however, often seeing a lawyer and preparing a will is an expensive, time consuming and thought provoking process. Wills are often something that we leave to another day, and often that day never comes. That day did come for one carer, Naomi Colville.
Naomi started by attending a webinar and soon found herself considering many aspects that she hadn’t considered. Who would be the guardian for the children? What should be done to make arrangements for a child that would never be capable of being responsible for their own finances? And what type of structures accommodated both their children and allowed for protection from various other parties involved in her children’s lives? What did Naomi learn about a disability trust?
The answers are out there and require time, thought and strategies to be determined. And they will need to be reviewed too on average every 5 years.
