Experienced Will and Estate Lawyers Serving Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area
The importance of a well-thought-out estate plan cannot be overstated. Without a valid Will in place, a person has no control over the distribution of their assets after their death. Under Ontario’s Succession Law Reform Act, when a person dies intestate, or without a Will, their assets are divided in strict adherence with provincial succession law, taking away any control the person could have had when they were living. While nobody looks forward to contemplating their own death, the relief provided by knowing your loved ones will be taken care of in accordance with your own wishes is immeasurable.
For those who are appointed as Estate Trustees under a Will, probating an estate can be a stressful and time-consuming process. Many Estate Trustees are still grieving the loved one they lost when they are required to begin the complex probate process, and they often don’t know where to begin. A skilled lawyer will provide guidance from start to finish, ensuring that each Trustee fulfills each of their obligations in accordance with the law.
