Putting a will in place brings peace of mind

When you begin to face your life's finances, you begin to see that the end of the road will eventually come for us all and it may be a good idea to get something in place that tells your heirs what you want to happen and who gets what. This is called a will and it is an important tool for everyone -- not just those who are well off. For example, who gets the family china? This is worth much more than just money.

A will lets your children know what you want to happen to the things and assets you have left behind. At the law office of Garton & Harris, we know what the law says and how your will needs to be set up in case it is contested.

We listen carefully to what you have to say and ask questions so we have a full understanding of what is to happen upon your demise.

In British Columbia, the Wills, Estates and Succession Act permits for a contested will if people in your direct family are left out of the will completely. They can also bring this to a contest if they feel they have been treated unfairly. We know this because it is our job to be as knowledgeable as possible when it comes to estate planning and wills.

Did you know that you may need an executor? This person will be someone you trust implicitly and have the greatest confidence in to do exactly what you want done. This can be quite daunting and our law firm can help with this aspect of your estate as well. We are seasoned lawyers who have a vast experience in this type of situation.
