Did you know that a staggering 70% of Australian adults don’t have a legally binding Will? It’s a startling statistic!

However, there’s good news for our supporters. The Animal Welfare League Qld has partnered with Gathered Here to offer you an incredible opportunity: a FREE simple Will.

No matter the size of your estate, having an up-to-date Will is essential for your own peace of mind and the well-being of your family. A Will not only provides legal protection for your spouse, children, and assets but also allows you to clearly articulate your wishes in a manner that aligns with your lifelong values.

So, why do so many people neglect, or put off making a Will? One common reason is the misconception that it’s a costly and time-consuming process. In an effort to encourage our supporters to tackle this important task, we’ve partnered with Gathered Here, a top-rated online Will writing platform. They are offering free and legally binding simple Wills that can be completed in less than 10 minutes, with the added bonus of unlimited updates for life.


Simple Will versus a Complex Will – What is the difference?

A simple Will might suit those who have no children, successors, or partners. But what if you have a blended family, own property while your partner doesn’t, or possess assets overseas or in a company? In such cases, things can become complex, and it’s crucial to ensure accuracy rather than leaving behind challenges and stress for your family to handle after you’re gone.

If you are unsure about your circumstances, the Animal Welfare League Qld (AWLQ) advises seeking professional legal advice before making any decisions.
