A single will for a testator to leave their entire estate (aside from gifts of personal chattels and optional charitable donations) to their children in equal shares "per stirpes".
The alternative to "per stirpes" is "per capita", the share of any beneficiary that precedes you in death is shared equally among the remaining beneficiaries. ...
With "per stirpes", if one child were to precede you in death, the other child would receive half, and the children of the deceased child would get the other half.
You can also optionally include testamentary discretionary trusts.
If testamentary discretionary trusts are included, certain key terms for the trusts will be added into a schedule.
Please Note: In NSW there is a new temporary regulation made under s17 of the Electronic Transactions Act, designed to help reduce face-to-face contact for the witnessing of documents such as wills, powers of attorney and statutory declarations during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Other States and Territories have or may be in the process of establishing similar measures.
