Making a Will

Hello. I'm an Australian national living in Zürich. In a short while I shall be a naturalized Swiss with dual nationality.

I am wanting to ask whether I should write a will according to the laws of Australia or do I have to follow the Swiss law.


I have assets in Australia which are to be included in the will.

Thanks

Re: Making a Will

In Switzerland you do either. This has all been covered here before. If you can't be bothered searching, neither can I...

If you are Swiss, you MUST follow Swiss law.
