Estate planning involves maximizing your wealth to then passing it on efficiently in a way that achieves your aims, which would normally include the provision of financial security for yourself and your family and mitigating tax. The scope of options available to you are primarily dependant on your circumstances including the value and type of assets included in your estate, your civil status and your family unit.
This process is concerned with applying for a Grant of Probate to enable to administer the deceased's estate, pay debts and expenses and distribute the assets to the beneficiaries. Inheritance tax, if due, is payable prior to obtaining the Grant.
You may encounter situations when planning and dealing with your personal welfare and health matters will be difficult if you are unable to make decisions due to lack of mental capacity. People of any age can lose their mental capacity -temporarily or permanently- because of an accident or illness for instance, and by making a Lasting Power of Attorney you ensure that the person you choose (your attorney) will be helping you if and when required. Having appointed an attorney under a Lasting Power of Attorney will also prevent potential family disputes as to whom should deal with your health affairs and what decisions shall be made if you lack mental capacity.
I am Marcela Pierabella and I was born in Argentina, where I attended secondary school in the village of Los Quirquinchos, in the Santa Fe province, before completing my law degree in 1997 at the National University of Rosario. After a brief period of practising as a lawyer I moved to Europe to study a Master in Law in Huelva, Spain. I subsequently studied contemporary law in Brazil before settling in London in 1999, where for over 10 years I worked in welfare and housing law in several organisations including Terrence Higgins Trust and St Hilda’s Community Centre.
