Legal Wills Properly Drawn...
Estates Professionally Administered
Making legal wills is not usually at the top of most peoples’ “to do list.” This task usually falls well down the list under the category of “things we should get around to doing, one of these days.” This is understandable, particularly given the busy lives many of us of lead.
Yet many people don’t realize the necessity of having a properly-prepared and up to date last will and testament. In fact, every adult person who owns assets or property, especially if he or she has children, should have one. Where there’s a will there’s a way—your way, because you get to decide how the assets of your estate will be divided and distributed when you die.
Where there’s no will, you lose control. Your estate will be disposed of the government’s way, according to the general law of Ontario governing estates of persons who die without a will. Depending on the circumstances, this could result in totally unintended and potentially disastrous consequences for your family and loved ones.
For most people, legal wills can be simple wills in the sense that, while they should be properly prepared by an experienced wills and estates lawyer, they needn’t be overly complicated in form and content. At Jaluvka & Sauer Lawyers we have over 30 years experience in the wills and estates field.
