In 2016, Southern Waters Legal was about to celebrate its 7th year in business. Up to this point Leona and I had enjoyed great success, which had led to growth but also unexpected HR issues. These issues started to take some of our time away from running the business. We decided to tackle these issues head on and employ a HR Consultant to deal with any HR issues and to take on our ‘headaches’. With HR on board we have been able to focus on what we love, which is running the business and providing the best possible service to our clients. The flow on effect is that we have doubled revenue and staff numbers and halved our HR headaches.
Even though a Will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign, current statistics show that almost one in two Australians do not have a valid Will. According to the NSW Government, 55% of Australians have a valid Will. Of the remaining 45%, some have no Will at all and others have a Will that is not up to date.
A Will is a legal document and it is a statement of your wishes that are to be executed when you pass away. When you write a Will, you appoint an executor who will oversee the processes of distributing your estate in line with your wishes.

When parties separate, one or both parties may seek legal advice. A natural and common concern is which lawyer a person should see.

This gives rise to another common concern, being the amount of legal fees a person is going to spend.
The idea of going to Court often creates a sense of dread for people who have separated from their partners. It is important to know that Court is not the only way to resolve your matter with your former partner. In fact, before a person can file proceedings with the Court, a person must usually engage in a process to try and minimise the need to attend court. These actions are known as “pre-action procedures”.
