Contact our Lawyers

Determining how your assets should be distributed after you have passed away is a matter that everyone should consider. The importance of being prepared cannot be underestimated and it is imperative that a knowledgeable professional assist you throughout the process. 

Wills and Estates is a crucial legal tool to protect your loved ones from potential litigation and probate disputes. The estate planning attorney should possess the appropriate expertise, tailoring the wording of the will to achieve your desired objectives. Having a professional with the requisite skills will ensure that the will is expertly written and the terms are honoured as per your wishes. The quality of a will determines its enforceability and whether it protects against all potential conflicts of interest, challenges, and allegations of undue influence during the probate process. 

At Family Lawyers, our probate will lawyers guide you through the process of drafting a will and can clarify any questions you may have regarding the legal language required of these documents. To ensure that all the potential issues are identified and addressed in your wills and trusts, Family Lawyers will undertake our comprehensive due diligence. We focus on understanding you, your family situation and your goals.

Our Will and Estates service includes all matters related to the testamentary instrument, such as:

  • Drafting and revising your will
  • Setting up a revocable trust
  • Representing you in will and trust litigation matters

Foreigners in Vietnam cannot hold a Vietnamese will (unless they are permanent legal residents). However, The Civil Code of Vietnam recognizes any will compliant to the laws of the testator’s country of origin provided it is in compliance in the jurisdiction where the will was made. Family Lawyers are well equipped when these situations arise, providing you with the necessary advice and support. 

In case of a wills and estates dispute, we have the necessary experience to deal with legal difficulties swiftly and sensitively, sometimes engaging in mediation instead of litigation if necessary. Whilst we understand the significance of fairness and process, we are also attuned to delicately deal with the distress that is associated with losing a loved one. For that reason, we have long been entrusted by our clients for our competence, intuition and discretion.

Having your will prepared and completed by an experienced lawyer at Family Law is the most effective method to ensure that all legal necessities are accounted for. If certain provisions are not met, there is a significant risk that the enforceability of the document at the probate hearing is compromised and your will’s legal validity is challenged at a later date.
