Every person in Ontario, especially those with children, should have a valid Will. The consequences for not having one could mean the current provincial statutory legislation may not dispose of your estate according to your wishes. I personally advise all my clients that having a valid Will is a vital to their Estate Planning goals.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY
You cannot predict when you may find yourself in a serious state of health whereby you are no longer competent to handle your own financial affairs and health care decisions. It is imperative that you appoint someone to do this on your behalf in the event of such a situation. Along with your Will, I advise my client to have their Powers of Attorney drafted and signed as part of their estate financial planning goals.
If you are a Real Estate client, I can make it cost effective to prepare these documents in conjunction with the completion of your Real Estate transaction.

There may be times whereby a loved one has passed away and you discover that you have been named the Executor and/or Trustee of that person’s estate. You will need to familiarize yourself of the legal requirements of handling someone’s estate. I would be more than pleased to meet with you to discuss the requirements of the Administration of your loved one’s estate in a sensitive and professional manner. It may turn out that very little is required for you to do as Executor/Trustee. However, it is important that you speak to me to discuss your rights and responsibilities in this regard.
