Making a Will in the Northern Territory
Making a will is the simplest way to make sure that your assets are distributed the way you want them to after you die. If you die without a will, you are treated as an ‘intestate’, meaning your assets are distributed amongst your relatives based on a statutory formula.
The rules for making a will in the Northern Territory are contained in the Wills Act (NT). However, the legal requirements are strict, so you should seek legal advice on how to make a will.
