Wills & Estates

Ensuring your loved ones know your wishes

At Jackson LPC, we help you fully document your wishes and ensure they are followed in the future.

Wills

In Ontario, if a deceased person does not have a will, their assets will be distributed according to the Succession Law Reform Act. Some people are entirely comfortable having their estate dealt with in this manner, but for most, Ontario laws do not conform to how they would like their property distributed. By having a properly prepared will and informing your loved ones where it is stored, you can ensure that your property is taken care of and distributed after your death in accordance with your wishes.

Wills can be simple or very complex depending on how much property you have and how you would like it to be distributed. All wills appoint an executor, who is responsible for gathering up all your property, paying off your debts using that property, and distributing what remains to whom you choose. Every will also contains how you would like your property divided and who it will be given to. People with minor or dependent children often use a will to ensure their children will have their needs met in the case of a sudden or unexpected death.

Powers of Attorney

In some cases, illness, aging, or an injury may lead to a temporary or permanent situation where you are no longer capable of making medical or financial decisions. Having a Power of Attorney for Personal Care and a Continuing Power of Attorney for Property allows you to appoint people you trust to make decisions on your behalf. Furthermore, you can also clearly document choices you would like your personal representative to make for you, such as medical treatments you wish to refuse or receive.

Without these documents, you may not have any control over who may be appointed to make decisions about your property or personal care. Furthermore, friends or family members who wish to be your decision maker may have to apply to the Consent and Capacity Board or the Ontario Courts in order to manage your affairs. This legal process can be an added layer of stress for loved ones at an already emotional time. By having your Powers of Attorney properly prepared and your decision makers advised on where they are stored, you will provide peace of mind for your loved ones.
