Understanding wills in Manitoba
Simply put, a will is a document that provides instruction for how your property and estate should be distributed after your death. A common misbelief is that you do not need a will –however
if you die without a will your assets will be distributed based on intestacy
laws, not your wishes.
A skilled estate planning lawyer at our firm can sit down with you and help you draft a document that specifies how your estate should be distributed. We can ensure that your will reflects your wishes. Further, we can help you update your will every time a major life event occurs such as a marriage, divorce, birth or death in the family, or the acquiring of a substantial sum of money.
Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney gives your family the tools they need to help you during your lifetime when you are no longer able to help yourself. Executing a well drawn Power of Attorney before it is needed avoids the need for the Public Trustee or costly Committeeship Applications and ensures your family can manage your affairs on your behalf.
Health Care Directives
A Health Care Directive, or Living Will, gives you the comfort of knowing that your loved ones will be making sensitive health care decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. Clearly setting out who should be making these decisions will avoid family disagreements and delays in treatment at a time when you need timely and important decisions to be made regarding your health.
