Give estate administration and planning the attention it needs by retaining a top Edmonton estate lawyer for wills, estates and trusts
If you are not sure about the importance of having a properly written – and regularly updated Will – consider what happens if you do not have the help and guidance of an Edmonton lawyer for wills and estates who understands estate law in Alberta:
- key decisions regarding your estate are not made by you
- your estate will be dealt with in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act
You probably care about what happens to your estate following your death. You also likely have very specific ideas about who should receive the proceeds of your estate. That, in essence, is what writing a Will is all about. It is a legal document that provides instructions on who gets what. You also get to select who will be responsible for ensuring your Will is executed properly, and, if any children are involved, you get to name their Guardian.
Here’s another way to look at wills, estates and trusts planning. Having a Will drafted with a leader among Edmonton estate lawyers makes things much easier for your relatives and loved ones because there is no doubt about your intentions. This, in turn, means there is none of the stress, grief and cost that is almost inevitable when there is no Will.
It’s important to have the document drafted by a Wills & Estates lawyer because it takes a lot of knowledge about estate law in Alberta, especially if the estate includes high value assets.
