What happens if you die without a will? Who should I appoint as my executor? Who gets my Super?

Today's episode brings you the closest thing to free legal advice you'll find around, with a real live lawyer! In this episode, Kate chats to Marlee Viero, who is currently Wills & Estates lawyer at Nest Legal and has been practising in this area for over 5 years.

Marlee highlights the importance of investing in a will, what you need to consider when getting a will, appointing an executor and what their role is, contesting a will, estate plans and Super binding death nominations.

Note: Marlee speaks about these issues from a Victorian legal perspective, and since our legal system likes to keep everyone on their toes, the laws in your State may differ, so please check what's relevant to you.
