We get it: no one wants to think about wills. However, a little time and effort today can prevent stress, confusion, and higher costs later. At Gunn Law Group, you can be confident that your testamentary affairs are being handled with dignity and sensitivity.
At Gunn Law Group we believe that it is better for you to decide what should happen to your assets when you die, not the Government of Alberta. The absence of a will can lead to exactly that and cost the estate additional expenses while increasing family concerns. We will help you prepare a will that ensures your wishes will be carried out while leaving as much as possible to those you choose to receive gifts from your estate.
It is also important to protect you and your assets should you become unable to make decisions for yourself through accident or whatever other manner. A Personal Directive and Enduring Power of Attorney allow you to choose who will make decisions for you when you cannot while directing how those decisions are to be made. We can help guide you to prepare these vital documents.
The death of a loved one is always difficult for those left behind. We can assist executors and family members to apply for probate and administer an estate, including any required court applications.
The lawyers at Gunn Law Group are pleased to assist you with:
Enduring Powers of Attorney
Applications for Probate or Administration
Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship applications
