Estate Planning and your pets
We were pleased to be joined today by a new team member, ‘Bear’ the office labrador. While Bear is not necessarily the most productive staff member at Ballantyne Law Group, he is the most popular. Bear’s visit got us thinking about the importance of pets in our lives, and how through proper estate planning we can ensure that they are looked after when we die.
About 65% of Australian households own one or more pets, and Australians spent more than $12 billion on pet products and services last year.
