"What Will Happen To My Family When I'm Gone?"
Developing a Will and deciding what happens to your Estate can be a complicated process that's tricky to navigate. There's a lot of legal jargon, paperwork, uncertainty on what information is required and fear of making the wrong decisions when you don't understand the process.
Avoiding it altogether will create even greater challenges.
A lack of planning for the future could mean your family is left to sort things out on their own when you're gone, or worse, have decisions - potentially the wrong ones - made for them without your input and consent.
You should have peace of mind knowing that no matter what happens, your estate is taken care of so your family won't be burdened with it when you're gone.
We know these are tough decisions to make, with little time to make them. We also know the costs can be high when you don't plan.
If you are an executor or administrator of an estate, it can be a daunting task. You deserve to have an experienced guide help you navigate the pitfalls associated with administering an estate. Being an executor has personal liability and you need to protect yourself from claims by beneficiaries or creditors.
Planning The Way It Should Be
When you have the right lawyer helping you through the process by listening, explaining and really understanding what's important to you, you will feel certain you're making the best decisions for your family's future.
A Proper Plan:
- helps you avoid unnecessary headaches and saves you money in the long run.
- is easier for your family. It eliminates the need to make hard decisions under duress.
- gives you control over guardianship. It will help you avoid having the courts decide for you.
- ensures your family member with a long term disability can maintain government supports (like AISH)
