Estate administration: Keeping the peace among family members

One of the issues in the back of most people's minds when they think about planning their estates is how to keep everyone happy. That goal may be much easier to attain and estate administration much simpler when British Columbia residents put into place some pertinent things in place when writing their plans. One of those includes choosing the right executor to administer the will.  

Can certain people be left out of wills in British Columbia?

Most people believe they should be fair when writing their estate plans. But when a British Columbia testator (one who writes a will) doesn't have children of his or her own and would like to leave assets to nieces and nephews, he or she may feel like those assets should be divided equally among those relatives. However, wills aren't one size fits all and if a testator feels closer to certain nieces and nephews than others and would like that reflected in an estate plan, he or she has every right to do so.
