There are many ways to control your affairs and many reasons to do so, but at Christopher Lawn we’re experienced in shaping our services around our clients to ensure you’re making the right decisions for you. 

If you’re hoping to take control of your own affairs, there are many ways you can ensure a safe future for your estate and your family. These include:

  • Writing a will to make sure your wishes are met after your death
  • Assigning Lasting Power of Attorney so your trusted nominee can carry out your wishes regarding health and welfare should you lose mental capacity
  • Creating a trust to provide for the future of your family or loved ones, including vulnerable individuals in your care

This could be a child or an adult without the mental capacity to take care of their own legal or financial matters.
