Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney

Services

Wills

We understand that for some putting your affairs in order can be a daunting task.  It doesn’t have to be that way.   With our team of expert lawyers, you are in safe hands.  We offer empathy and will find solutions that you ensure that there is provision for your wishes to be followed and your assets protected for your loved ones.

We offer  fixed fees for basic will writing and can offer home or hospital visits in R.C.T. for a small charge.  If you can’t get to us, don’t worry we will get to you.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Whether you aim is to make matters easier for your loved ones or whether you wish for someone to manage your financial affairs, we can provide expert advice on the uses of Lasting Powers of Attorney. They are invaluable documents that allow you to nominate people to help you in some cases now and potentially in the future.   A Lasting Power of Attorney will therefore provide you and your loved ones with protection should the worst happen.

At Full Stop Law, our team can guide you through the options available, helping you reach the right decisions for you and your personal circumstances.

We offer a fixed, transparent fee, and can also visit you at home or hospital for a small charge.

Deputyship

When someone lacks capacity to make decisions for themselves and there is no Lasting Power of Attorney in place, it might be appropriate for the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy to manage the affairs of that person.

Our specialist but sensitive team are on hand to guide you through the application process to become a Deputy ensuring that the process is hassle free enabling you to focus on the person, rather than the paperwork.

Probate

At Full Stop Law, we appreciate that losing someone can be one of the most difficult experiences for our clients.    That is why we have a team of expert lawyers on hand to help you with the legal formalities.

We are compassionate and down to earth but importantly, experts in our field offering you peace of mind when you need it the most.  We aim to present you with jargon-free advice, making every stage of the process as straightforward as possible.

Care Home Advice

If a loved one has to go into a care home, the prospect can be daunting.  You may have queries in relation to housing and how assets can sometimes be used to fund fees.  We can help you work things out and supply information for complex matters that is sometimes hard to find.

At Full Stop Law, we believe that all clients should know what to expect and request accountability and transparency from organisations.

If you are facing this situation, perhaps because you have been told that you need to be cared for in a home or you are concerned for a for a loved one and need to be put on the right track, call us for sound advice.

Victoria Cannon dealt with my divorcé and was professional and knowledgeable throughout. I reached a better conclusion than I thought that I would and I can’t recommend Victoria and her team enough. Everyone was pleasant when I went there and they were really easy to deal with. I was anxious but now I feel totally over the moon with the outcome. I can now live my life!!
