Australia

Online Will Service

My Will Online is a membership based online service $89.95 AUS. Site description:

"The majority of people who need a will have simple requirements and our will kit produces a perfectly valid, unambiguous, plain English, legal will across the Australian states and territories. Using a will kit, rather than a solicitor, to prepare your will is inexpensive, fast and straightforward.”

New South Wales Estate Planning Services is a popular service for residents of NSW subsided by the government to help you complete your estate plans. NSW Trustee & Guardian charges $330 AUS (including GST) to prepare a will and some discounts apply. Site description:

“The fees NSW Trustee & Guardian charge for administering an estate are set by government and are structured differently to charges a private solicitor makes. This is because NSW Trustee & Guardian operates under different legislation. Overall, it is very difficult to compare NSW Trustee & Guardian's costs with those of a private solicitor. Many solicitors charge on a 'time spent' basis and the amount of time spent will depend on numerous factors, such as the complexity of the estate. Some solicitors charge higher hourly rates than others so the fees charged by one solicitor may be quite different to another.”

End of Life Planning, Living Wills, Advance Directives

Advance Care Planning Australia is a free, non profit site providing helpful information for end of life planning. Site description:

"Advance care planning involves thinking about, discussing with your family and close friends, and possibly documenting what types of health care you may or may not wish to receive - if you become seriously ill and/or unable to speak for yourself.
"We provide you with more detailed information about advance care planning as a process, and how you can complete your own Advance Care Plan. If you have any queries or need further information, refer to the Links, Documents and Resources page or your local Advance Care Planning service, or email us at: acp@austin.org.au”

Death over Dinner Australia is a inspirational site taking a novel approach to having conversations about the end of our life and providing helpful information, tools and resources. Site description:

“Death Over Dinner (DOD) Death Over Dinner was originally designed in the U.S. by Michael Hebb and Angel Grant to encourage people to have conversations about end of life and End of Life Care at the kitchen table rather than in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), when it’s too late. DOD is an interactive website that encourages conversation to start with family and friends while breaking bread, and well in advance of an accident or an emergency when people are overwhelmed or unable to communicate. DOD gives people the permission to discuss their choices and thoughts on end of life and End of Life Care. It educates people on the value of making decisions about their wishes, and expressing them to their loved ones, by inspiring a series of uplifting and interactive dinners to transform the seemingly difficult conversation about death into an intimate, shared experience. DOD provides a range of tools, reading and support materials, as well as tips to get the conversation started. Dinner party hosts choose the guests and the menu and let the wine and conversations flow.”
