You have done your best to ensure that your family is taken care of in the event of your passing. But, are you aware of what your Will contains, especially if it was drafted years ago? Do you know that your Will needs to be updated, but aren’t sure if the updates are minor tweaks or major revisions? Let us offer you a FREE review of your Will and advise on what changes are recommended, and how to best do them in the most cost-effective manor possible.
Everyone, whether or not they are in a relationship, own a home, or have significant personal assets, should have a Will. It is easy to forget, however, to update or re-write your Will when your family or financial circumstances change. Have you recently moved to Alberta from another province or country? Bought a home? Married or re-married? Divorced? Had a new child, or had a child turn 18? Become a grandparent? Any of these life changes and events may warrant updating your Will to reflect your new circumstances.
If you have recently become a parent, it is crucial to set out in your Will who you wish to be the guardian of your child should something happen to you. If you have become a grandparent, perhaps you want to begin making arrangements to contribute to your grandchildren’s future education. If you have experienced a significant life event since you last updated your Will, it is a good time for West Legal, your Calgary Wills and Estates Lawyer, to review your Will and let you know if you need to make changes.
We offer a free, no-obligation review of your Will. At your consultation, we will let you know of any changes to Wills and Estates legislation of which you should be aware, and will also advise as to whether you require a simple amendment to your current Will, or a new Will entirely. If your Will is sufficient as it is and appropriately reflects your circumstances, we will simply thank you for your time, and hope that you will keep our team in mind for your future Calgary Wills and Estates needs. We look forward to meeting you, and helping you plan for your future.
