Adventist Wills is a service of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Western Australian Conference) Ltd that is provided for those who are associated with the Church.
This service includes the preparation of a legal will that is checked by a practicing solicitor and is provided free of charge and without financial obligation. If you wish us to prepare your will please go to the website https://adventistwills.org.au/ and complete your profile. When your profile has been completed an email will be sent to our Trust Services Department alerting them so that they can go ahead and prepare your will. When the will has been completed and is ready for signing they will be in contact with you.
Trust Services operates within Australia and New Zealand in order to enable the members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to have a Will prepared for them. The service has operated for over thirty years and is under the supervision of practicing lawyers. There are five directors who are ordained ministers and have received specialist training in the area of Wills and estate-planning and are regularly involved in professional development.
For legal reasons, the service provided is limited to “those associated with the church”. This is understood as referring to church members and others who attend church services. Wills are prepared free of charge and without financial obligation.
Many members wish to benefit the church organization by means of a bequest and when this is the case the Director can ensure that the Will is written in such a way that the bequest will benefit that part of the Lord’s work that is the object of the member’s choice.
Guardianship of minor children often weighs heavily on younger parents and having Christian values reflected in their Will is important to them. Because it is a minister who is taking the instructions for their Will he understands the sentiments of those parents and thereby enables Christian principles to be enunciated in regard to guardianship.
