Oakville Wills & Estates Lawyers
Planning for the future, including addressing what happens to your property and other assets when you are no longer here, or what may happen if you get sick and are no longer able to make critical decisions about your finances or your personal care, can be stressful and overwhelming.
Nobody wants to consciously consider the worst-case scenario or looks forward to sitting down with a lawyer and discussing it in enough detail to create a formal legal document that outlines your wishes. However, turning your mind to these issues while you are still able and taking the time to formalize your plan is an important step to take.
At Campbells LLP, our team of compassionate and highly skilled Oakville estate lawyers have been assisting clients with wills and estates matters since 1999. We regularly advise on all elements of forward-planning and can help ensure that your family and other loved ones are provided for, that you maximize wealth transfer to your beneficiaries, that your ultimate wishes are clearly outlined, and that any potential disputes are proactively addressed.
Lawyers Assisting with Estate Planning
The knowledgeable wills lawyers at Campbells LLP regularly assist clients in proactive estate planning, including:
- Power of attorney for personal care;
- Power of attorney for property;
- Applications for guardianship;
- Testamentary trusts;
- Inter vivos trusts (also known as living trusts); and
- Henson trusts and other methods of providing for disabled children.
Effective estate planning is an important element of overall wealth management. It is not something that is reserved for the very wealthy or others with significant assets. In fact, everyone should have a well-drafted, up-to-date estate plan that has been prepared by a knowledgeable lawyer.
Lawyers Assisting with Estate Litigation
Despite proactive estate planning that outlines a person’s express wishes in writing, various disputes involving wills, estates, and powers of attorney still arise. Responding to such disputes requires guidance, advice, and representation from a knowledgeable estates lawyer.
These disputes include:
- Will challenges;
- Defending a will;
- Passing of accounts;
- Dependant support claims;
- Family Law Act claims;
- Power of attorney disputes;
- Consent and capacity issues;
- Removal of guardians;
- Trustee/Executor disputes;
- Removal of trustees;
- Equitable claims; and
- Variations of trust.
With our help, we can ensure that the legacy of our clients and/or the legacy of their loved ones is carried out exactly as they wished, that their health and well-being is taken care of, and that their estate is protected.
