Why do I need a Will in BC?

Sooner or later, everyone must leave this earth. And when they do, they will leave their assets behind. Now, you can decide who will take care of your estate, and who gets those assets, or the BC Government will, through the Wills, Estates and Succession Act.

Without a Will, the Government or the Courts will:
• Decide how much your spouse and children will receive;
• Require that your children’s share be tied up until they turn 19…at a time when your family may need the money the most;
• Determine who will manage your assets; and
• Determine who will be your children’s guardian if your spouse has predeceased you;

We believe that it is important for YOU to decide what to do with your assets, and choose who will handle them, when to distribute them, and who will take care of your children.

With a Will, you can plan and make decisions on:

• What you will do with all of your worldly possessions;
• Choose an Executor/Trustee to ensure that your wishes are carried out;
• Choose a Guardian to care for your minor children until they reach age 19;
• Minimize the potential for complications for your heirs;
• Minimize the taxes that your estate may have to pay.
