that's true Mish! i think its a balance of everything you have to gather and compile them together to build a solid piece evidence. we just never though having a will would matter till now...lol So even with minimum belonging can still have a will without owning a house etc?

Most definetly. I think a lot of people misunderstand wills - it's not just about what you own. My partner and I are 25 - at the time we owned no property or furniture or anything of substance. I listed my partner down as being the person to take care of my affairs - for example if a decision needs to be made on my behalf because I can't make it for myself (eg I am sedated in surgery or I've had a horrible accident and am in a coma). There are other things you can have included in your will as well that don't have to do with dividing your assets.

I lodged onshore partner visa on December last year. My relationship is real but I don't have much evidence to show my relationship because 1/ I changed my mobile twice so I lose all text and my husband has no Facebook account . My husband uses his work mobile to send me text n call me because it is free.so when he change job he gave that mobile to his boss.
2/ I moved to live with him around one year b4 we lodged application but I didn't changed my address as my brother still live in my previous address so every letter send to me I still can get.but after I lodged application I have a lot of evidence of living together as I keep everything. I don't know that will help or not as I don't have enough evidence b4 we lodged application.

Yep. My husband got a will and he doesn't own property or anything. It is to show who you will leave your things to.

ah! i gotcha i have taken a look at the will kits now, it would seem pretty straightforward, cant believe such a simple thing we didnt even realize. we always thought it was not necessary to have one till later on lol.

sorry, alexlulu12, guess having a will does help as well

however, Mish just want to clarify something with the "will"
would it be alright to write a will own your own? like typed up then have witness on the bottom witness our signing of what we typed up at the A4 size listed of our will together? so kinda a joint will? OR do we have to get one of those will thing from Australian Will Kit ??

also thank you Engaus! for sharing your thoughts on the will it would seem more sense to us now how important will can be

No worries! You can definately write your own will and have it witnessed and it will be a valid document. There's no need to pay anyone to do it for you unless you want

You would need to use a will kit or go to a lawyer otherwise it won't legal.

I am also not 100% sure and someone can correct me on this I believe the will kit ones have to also be lodged at the trustee office to be legal (the lawyers do this for you).

Actually you can't it needs to contain the appropriate legal references. Writing it on plain paper and not using a will kit will not make it valid. Also if you adjust the will kit ones too much it can make them invalid too.

In reality anyone can write a will on anything that can be read, the problems start with interpretation of the person's desires. That is why people prefer to have them drawn up by a legal person.
A will does not have to be registered or lodged with any legal authority while the person is still alive, but has to be produced for probate if that is required by the particular state the person was resident in.
Also in some states getting married invalidates any existing will.
Here is a link to an excellent article that may help

Really? Because my dad's cousin had one that was written on plain paper and was not considered a valid will and then there were fighting over the estate.
