The Pineapple Project

You might have died, but your fb profile hasn’t.

Our online selves live on after we’ve died, so what are the big decisions we need to make about social media before we face death?

Tech journalist Claire Reilly talks us through the digital breadcrumbs of Tinder, Twitter, Tumbler, Bumble, Hinge, Facebook, Grindr and Insty that form the digital sandwich of your afterlife — and how to handle it now so your family won’t get a huge shock when they peer into your DM’s post-mortem.

Wait, can they do that? …

Your sick or ageing loved one is lying in a hospital bed. The doctors are asking for a decision: “What would they want?”. What about the advance care directive? Wait, what is that? And how do I make a decision about someone that’s not me?

Get your wishes in order, and make sure the people around you have theirs in order too. Jacinta talks about being asked in the ICU whether to keep her 97-year-old great uncle alive or not. And Dr Peter Saul talks us through what he calls an ‘authentic death’ in the chaos of an ICU.

So, who gets your kids if you die? And have they actually agreed to take them? SPOILER ALERT: A will written on the back of a coaster isn’t necessarily legit.

Here’s an easy guide to making a will and keeping it updated. We’ll cover all the basics, from the assets you can’t forget about, to nominating an executor — or outsourcing to a lawyer.

Plus you’ll learn what mistakes to AVOID when you’re divvying up your earthly possessions.

Family

Image credit: Abbie Mellé For most Australians, your most significant asset is your home.  Home ownership accounts for almost 50% of average household wealth. So, it’s pretty awesome that if you sell your home, and your home is worth more than when you bought it, the tax office charges you 0% tax on the money […]

Family

It’s really common to get your will done when you may not have completed your family. If your family grows you need to consider the effect on your will.  There are different considerations for biological, adopted, foster or step-children.  Either way I recommend having the conversation – with your spouse and your will specialist. Book in with me anytime for a FREE15 minute discovery call.

Growing family? Your will and providing for biological, adopted, foster & step-children

We are a team of humans, working with humans. That's why it works so well. We get the legal stuff, but we also put client experience at the forefront of everything we do. We're doing law, but we're doing it differently – and we're proud of that. 

Getting sh*t done.

Embracing our 'flearnings'.

Flexibility.

Transparency.

No B.S.

And we don't say that lightly. We actually mean it – because we're big on integrity and being genuine humans.

Our passion [and biz] is fuelled by hard work, and doing what we say we're going to do.

It's not just confetti and wills that excite us [although both really do light our fire].
