A Will governs how your property will be distributed when you die, and names a guardian for your children. A Will allows you to name an Executor: someone you trust to carry out your final wishes so that the property you own is passed on as you intend it to be, and that all final estate matters are looked after. Without an executor, your family may be burdened with delays and extra costs to administer your estate.
Do you already have a Will? It may be time to review it and consider drafting a new one if any of these circumstances apply:
You have a new spouse, are recently separated, divorced or widowed.
You want to name different Executors
Your adult children have had a spousal breakdown
You have recently moved to BC
You wish to change how you would like your estate distributed
