Why do I need a will?

in Wills

Wills let you explain how you want your assets distributed, and can include things like who you want to be guardian of your children. They also help to avoid family squabbles, and the costs associated with going to court to finalize your estate. The time you spend with a lawyer planning your estate could save your spouse, children and other beneficiaries much time, effort and money. You can use a will to:

  • Appoint a guardian for your children
  • Protect your business
  • Decide who receives your assets
  • Provide for a favourite charity
  • Make a difficult time less difficult

If you don’t have a will, the government will make one for you. If that makes you a little uncomfortable, read on to learn more about wills or contact us for a no-obligation consultation.
