Making a will
A will is a legal document that says what you would like to happen with your money, belongings and other assets (your estate) when you pass away.
Your will names who you want to give your estate to (your beneficiaries) and who you would like to administer your estate when you pass away (your executor).
Getting help to make your will
The Public Trustee of Queensland provides a free will-making service to all Queenslanders.
Some Queensland Community Legal Centres also offer advice about wills and estate planning.
