wills & estates
There are numerous reasons to have an up-to-date will. They can ensure you have a say in what happens to your possessions after you are gone. They can save time, money, and stress. The best way to avoid these headaches is to plan ahead. We can help you figure out what best suits your needs and develop a personalized plan. The same applies to powers of attorney and health care directives. We will work with you to develop a plan from beginning to end.
We understand estate administration and probate can often be handled by loved ones and friends, not experts. If you have any questions or would like help with the process, please give us a call and we can discuss all your needs.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint an individual to act on your behalf regarding your property. It can only be prepared by a competent and capable individual and once that time passes, it is no longer possible to obtain one. A Power of Attorney can take effect immediately or after a specific event occurs (usually some form of incapacity).
Health Care Directive
In the event you lose the ability to make or communicate decisions regarding your medical treatment, a Health Care Directive prepared in advance will allow you to appoint someone to make those decisions on your behalf.
Probate confirms that a will is valid and shows that the named executor(s) has the authority to make decisions about the estate. If you are an executor or have questions regarding an individual's estate, please contact us and we can discuss your needs. You can also find the Deceased Estate Handbook here, provided by the Public Guardian and Trustee of Manitoba to provide information.
