A Will is one of the most important legal documents that every person should prepare. The Will specifies how your estate is to be distributed upon your death. We have spent a great deal of time and effort ensuring that we prepare Wills of the highest quality and legal certainty.
Certain provinces, including British Columbia, have a statute (law) that a testator (maker of the Will) must make adequate provision for his or her spouse and/or children. In BC, this statute is the Wills Variation Act (the Act).
When preparing your Will, we will provide estate planning advice to ensure you are compliant with the laws of the Province of British Columbia and endeavour to minimize the amount of taxes and probate fees payable upon distribution of the estate. The most important factors are that your wishes are met and the Will is prepared correctly to avoid litigation.
