Nobody likes to think about the legal requirements for Wills And Estates, and many people do not think about them until there is a circumstance that forces them to. Unfortunately, it can create a whole host of new problems for you and your family when you wait too long. Benson Law LLP has the team to help you whether you are starting your planning or looking for a solution to a problem.
Dealing with a financial succession plan is never easy, but it is much better to have a solid legal team to help you get your finances in order, so there is no question about your wishes. Lawyers who work on Wills And Estate issues will tell you that your will and estate can be contested if you don’t get everything just right, and it may not go exactly as you had planned.
As always, the best way to prevent any issues is to make sure you have your estate planning affairs and succession plan in order, and that you are keeping up on the latest changes to the law. The team at Benson Law LLP not only has the experience to help you avoid any legal pitfalls, but we also work hard at putting the latest legal decisions and laws to work for you.
It is never too early to start, and Benson Law LLP can determine the right plan for you, incorporating one or more of the following services:
Wills: Making a will is essential to ensure that your wishes are carried out by law. In the absence of a will, the distribution of your estate will be determined by provincial law and, in most instances, result in unnecessary complications.
Powers of Attorney: Should you become unable to make important legal and financial decisions while still alive, protection is provided through having this in place.
Representation Agreements: This is your appointment of a trusted person to make health care decisions for you if you are unable to because of a mental or physical disability.
Trusts: A trust can be established for specific purposes and when put in place, ensure funds are protected for those purposes.
Tax Planning: We will help to develop strategies to minimize estate related taxation for individuals and business owners.
