Last Will and Testament
A comprehensive full package solution for individuals and for couples
Let’s face it, no one likes to think about dying and what happens to their assets after they’re gone — and that is likely one of the reasons so many Albertans lack wills. In addition to the uncomfortable subject matter, many clients have questions surrounding estate planning: how long it take to probate a will? How much does it cost? Does dying without a will burden my surviving family members with special legal challenges?
Thankfully, confronting our mortality is often the most challenging aspect of estate planning, as the process of ensuring that your proceeds are distributed exactly as you desire is easier and less expensive than ever before.
Three legal documents, one low price
In addition to assisting you with drafting your Last Will and Testament, Virk Law will provide you with two additional legal documents. The first, called a personal directive, allows you to appoint the person or persons that you trust to make decisions in specific areas, such as health care, on your behalf should you lose the mental ability to do so. The second document is called a Power of Attorney and grants a person of your choosing with authority to handle your financial and estate matters. In addition, it’s important to note that you can update or change your Last Will and Testament, Personal Directive, and Power of Attorney at any time; indeed, situations change, and it’s essential that your will is reviewed regularly to respond to these situational changes and alterations.
