Will and Estate
Will and Estate
A will dictates your intentions and wishes on your passing and ensures they are carried out. You may be single, legally married, have children, or in a common-law marriage, but you must have a will. At Ramesh Sangha, our will and estate attorneys in Ontario have the experience in preparing personalized wills to address our client’s unique needs and requirements. Our offices were founded in 1980 and we provide domestic and multi-jurisdictional trust and estate advice and services.
Our in-depth understanding of our client’s unique objectives and our experience in planning, dispute resolution, and administration allow us to develop bespoke solutions for your needs. An important aspect of our service is to provide peace of mind to our clients.
Need for A Will
If you were to pass away without a will, you will have no control over how your assets will be divided or how the guardianship of your minor children will be managed. It is the law then that will determine everything:
- Your provincial laws will determine how your assets get divided and who will be appointed as a guardian to your minor children
- If you are married and separated, your entire estate could go to your spouse
- If you are a common-law couple, your spouse may not be able to inherit your estate
- You will also not have any say in how your debts will be paid or how your funeral arrangements will be made
These are just a few of the main reasons why you should consult our will and estate attorney to prepare your will.
Reviewing Your Will
Even if you already have a will, it is important to review it from time to time. We recommend considering the following points about your will to determine if it is the right time for an update:
- The last time you conducted a review
- When did you prepare the will?
- Whether the will was prepared by a professional or yourself
- Is your will properly signed and notarized?
- Is everyone mentioned in your will still alive?
- Has your life undergone any major changes, such as a marriage, separation, birth of a child, or divorce?
- Has there been any change in your assets?
There are many factors that can affect your existing will. Your existing will can become invalidated if you get married. You should also keep in mind that it can stay in effect even when you have been divorced or separated. Our will and estate attorneys can help protect your wishes and intentions.
