WILLS, TRUSTS AND ESTATES
Affordable, Experienced and Dependable Wills and Estate Planning Lawyer in Greater Toronto Area
What are your final wishes?
How do you want your assets managed-either now or after you pass?
These choices are too important to leave to chance or deal with “someday”.
Planning your estate today gives you the ability to express your own wishes about what should occur with your estate after you die. If you do not make a will, the law determines how your estate is distributed through the steps set out in the Succession Law Reform Act (Ontario).
Estate planning includes legal tools such as wills, trusts and powers of attorney. These tools are integral to help you ensure that your long-term wishes are met after you are gone. Estate planning includes maximizing the benefits you can leave to your beneficiaries, appointing guardians for minor children, and specifying who can make decisions regarding your care and property if you are no longer able to do so.
Estate administration involves collecting and managing the deceased’s estate, paying any debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining property to the heirs of the estate, whether pursuant to a Will or an intestacy.
