National Wills Week

This year National Wills Week will take place from 12-16 September 2022 and Legal Practitioners will be called upon to provide free legal advice and free drafting of wills.

It is important that practitioners understand the challenges relating to the non–recognition of relationships and the challenges faced by communities during COVID-19 and how it impacts on succession and estate planning.

Do you have a Will? What are the requirements of a valid Will? Do I have to amend my Will after divorce? 
Join us for a Facebook Live Chat on Wills on 13 September 2022 from 10:00-11:00.
Ms Ziyanda Nondabula: Assistant Master at the Master of the High Court Durban will be answering all your questions and comments regarding Wills.
