All adults should have a will in place so as to make the processing of their estate as easy as possible for surviving family members. Make sure when you’re gone it’s peace of mind you leave behind, not a legal quagmire.
To ensure your estate is handled with dignity and as you directed, it’s often wise to seek legal guidance. Matters to be considered include:
- Preparation of your will or that of a family member or friend
- Consideration, where applicable, of the Family Provisions Act
- Your entitlements in an estate if you have been excluded from a will
- Need for a Power of Attorney
- Need for enduring guardianship
