WILLS & ESTATE

 

WILLS


A will is a legal document which states who should receive which of your assets after your death. It names the persons (Trustees/Personal Representatives) you want to manage the estate. It also allows you to name guardians for any dependent children and your wishes for their financial needs and upbringing.
Your estate includes real estate, cash, vehicles and personal effects stocks and bonds, insurance policies, and pension benefits.
It is a good idea to have a will as illness or accident could claim anybody at any time. A will is the only way to control who gets what you have.  If you die without a will:
    your estate may not be divided as you would have wished; Your remaining assets will be transferred to surviving family members based on rules in the Wills and Succession Act
    your estate may end up being more complicated and expensive for your family to handle;
     if there is no one to whom your estate can be left if you do not leave a will, your estate may end up going to the provincial government.
A will must be in writing in Canada.
We assist regarding:

 

    Preparation of wills
•    Application for Probate and Administration of Estate
•    Advice with respect to estate planning and the distribution of your property in the event of your death.
•    And much more

 

ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY


Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) is a power of attorney in which an adult authorizes a person (attorney) to make decisions on behalf of the adult, or do certain things in relation to the adult's financial and property matters, and that continues to have effect while, or comes into effect when, the adult becomes mentally incapacitated or is incapable of managing their financial affairs. This can include paying bills, depositing and investing money on your behalf, and even selling your house.
It is important that you appoint a trusted person as your attorney. It is also important that the content and execution of the document comply with the provisions of the law governing power of attorney in Alberta.
By executing an EPA now, you ensure that your properties are managed by someone you trust can act in your best interest and who knows what you want and your values. It is a simple and inexpensive way to plan ahead. Otherwise, if you have mental incapacity in future without the EPA, the court process of applying by someone to be the trustee of your property can be lengthy and expensive and can lead to disagreement among family members. 
You can always revoke your Enduring Power of Attorney as long as you are mentally capable.

 

PERSONAL DIRECTIVES
A Personal Directive is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone in advance to make personal (non-financial) decisions on your behalf in case you lose your mental ability to make such decisions due to health problems. These include decisions relating to your health care, housing, medical treatment etc. It does not include decisions regarding your financial matters or properties. You require a power of attorney for this. 
The law in Alberta does not allow your spouse, partner, close relative or any other person to automatically make decisions for you in case you become incapacitated.
If you don’t make a Personal Directive before you become mentally incapacitated, a family member or an interested party will have to apply to the court to be appointed to act or make decisions regarding your personal matters. This process can be very lengthy and costly, lead to disagreement among family members and result in the appointment of someone you would not have appointed yourself.
In order to be valid, your Personal Directive must comply with all the requirements of Personal Directives Act.
We can help to prepare your Personal Directive
