Are You Looking for a Calgary Wills & Estates Lawyer?

Will Writing in Calgary

Here’s a fact: If you die intestate or without a will in Calgary, the Alberta Law will dictate who gets what share out of your property, who administers the estate and when they are going to get control over their share.

The scheme of distribution can be very different from what you would have chosen, which is why it is so important that you should prepare a Will. The absence of a Will can lead to unforeseen legal costs and cause a lot of emotional distress to your family, at a time when they would still be grief stricken from the loss.

Also, the preparation of the Will and the related estate planning helps you organize your business, immovable properties and financial assets in such a way that all of your loved ones are fully satisfied and properly provided for. Writing the Will ensures that your intentions are met and the distribution of the estate conforms with all applicable laws.
