Having a will prepared is one of the most simple and effective things you can do for your loved ones. Estate planning is not always the most pleasant of tasks and that’s why our team at Sodagar & Company is here to help. Working with an estate lawyer who is knowledgeable and familiar with the laws that ultimately protect your loved ones, assets and wealth is an important step. Sodagar & Company acts for a diverse set of clients ranging from individuals such as parents, grandparents and children all the way to professionals and business owners who own assets locally and outside of Canada. A clear explanation is always beneficial so that your will reflects what’s truly right for you and your family.
In 2014, the Wills, Estates and Succession Act was implemented after years of discussion and planning. It is important to note the recent changes have been made to the law with respect to: intestate succession, the distribution of assets when survived by a spouse but with no will, the law surrounding survivorship, as well as marriage contracts and their effects on a will. There have been further additions to the powers held by the BC courts as well as the changes in what parties need to prove when involved in estate litigation.
Our lawyers at Sodagar & Company will work with you to make sure your will is drafted and prepared with accuracy. Estate litigation is a common byproduct of an incomplete or poorly drafted will. Many people seek to save money in the short run by drafting their own will, or preparing a will online. The impact of a poorly drafted will is often not shown until it’s too late, and generally at a costly detriment to loved ones. At Sodagar & Company our lawyers take pride in their knowledge, experience, preparation and care when it comes to drafting a will, however complex the will may be so that your family is left to deal with the more significant matters in life.
