At the ACT Public Trustee and Guardian, we know that many people die without leaving a valid and up-to date Will, resulting in undesirable outcomes for family and beneficiaries.
Make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
Your Will is an important document that protects the assets you have worked hard to accumulate.
We engage professional, qualified staff to draft your Will no matter how simple or complex. We can also prepare your Enduring Power of Attorney at the same time.
We are the largest single Will-maker in the ACT and have in excess of 17,000 wills in our Will Register and we are centrally located in Civic. If you are experiencing mobility problems, we will happily come to you.

Just like ‘Will it Your Way’, we are keen for young people to have a valid Will in place.
Why should you make a Will?
Every adult should have a Will. A legally effective Will ensures that, in due course, your estate is distributed to the people you care about and in the way you want.
It is extremely important to correctly word your Will, because a poorly worded Will could mean your estate may not be distributed exactly according to your wishes. This can put unnecessary pressure on your family and may lead to unpleasantness, serious dispute or even litigation. If your Will is not valid, your estate will be distributed according to a formula determined by the government. This may result in family members who have little or no relationship with you receiving a share of your estate.
We’ll make sure that we speak in plain English and keep this as straightforward as possible. This is important. That’s why you can receive a discount of 10% on completing a Will if you are between the ages of 18 and 25 when you mention Will It Your Way!
You can find our offices in both Deakin and Gungahlin or call us on 02 6285 8000 for an appointment.
Keeping up to date
We will contact our ‘Will it Your Way’ clients at 21 and 25 to check if we can help you update your Will.
