An overlooked aspect of our life is preparing for our own passing. At ASD Law we can help you prepare for this untimely occurrence by planning the distribution of your estate to ensure that your loved ones are looked after. It is also very important to prepare for a situation where you become incapacitated and unable to make important decisions for yourself.
At ASD Law we can help you create your Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney for Personal Care and Property. We can also assist you with filing of probate applications in the event that youR loved one passes away with or without a will.
A Will is a legal document that deals with the disposition of your assets upon your death, as well as custody of minor children. A Will ensures that your wishes are formalized in writing and will only come into effect when you die.
For a Will to be valid, certain criteria must be met.
- A Will must be in writing and dated.
- The Will must be witnessed by two individuals who are present at the same time. The witnesses must also sign the last page of the Will.
- The testator (person making the Will) must be at least 18 years old, but you can be younger if they are legally married, a member of the Canadian forces, or a sailor.
- The testator must have mental capacity. They must understand what they are doing.
