How can I make a Will in Queensland?
You can make a Will in Queensland several ways: you can make your Will with a Solicitor, prepare your own Will, or make your Will with the Public Trustee.
Make your Will with a Solicitor
Prepare your own Will
You can prepare your own Will using a Will Kit, purchased from a post office, newsagent, or downloaded from the internet however, it is important to exercise caution with Will Kits, as they may not be suitable for your individual circumstances and are highly contestable in Court. It is also important to check anything you download meets Queensland legal requirements for a Will.
