You should make a will to ensure your wishes are carried out when you pass away. 

You can express how you would like your assets to be distributed after your death. This can include specific instructions for who receives what assets, such as property, money, or personal belongings. 

You can also name an executor to manage your estate and ensure that your wishes are carried out. If you have minor children or dependents, you can name a guardian to care for them after your death.  

Your will can also include instructions for your funeral or burial, and any other specific wishes you may have, such as charitable donations or the creation of a trust. 

It is important to remember that your will can be updated or changed throughout your lifetime as your circumstances or wishes change. You may need to update your will if you get married, divorced, have children, or if one of your beneficiaries passes away. 

Making a will with a reputable law firm like Geelong Legal is crucial as they provide invaluable legal counsel and guidance, ensuring that your wishes are expressed unambiguously, and that your will is legally valid.
