Importance of a Will

Why you should have lawyer to prepare your will.

In most cases, it is advisable to use a lawyer with experience in estate planning and will drafting. They can provide guidance on avoiding unnecessary probate fees, establishing trust funds for minors, delaying the distribution of assets beyond the age of majority, and making provisions for grandchildren.

A lawyer can assist you drafting wills by asking essential questions to determine what you need to cover in your Will and why. Clearly stating your intentions in your Will to ensure they are carried out as you desire; Ensuring your Will complies with the laws of Ontario; Minimizing taxes and other expenses that your loved ones may incur after your passing.

Are will kits sufficient?

No matter how well-designed a will kit is, it cannot replace a properly planned and drafted will. Each person’s situation is unique, and only through discussions can a draftsman obtain enough information to accurately represent a person’s true intentions.
