MAKE OR CHANGE A WILL
The lawyers at Gunn Law Group will help you prepare a will that ensures your wishes will be carried out. It is also important to have a will to give clarity to the beneficiaries and reduce the possibility of disputes. We can strategize to leave as much as possible to those you choose to receive gifts from your estate, and make the administration of your estate as easy as possible.
Your estate plan should be updated as your life evolves. Changes to your relationship status, province of residence, personal wealth, and maturity of dependents may impact your wishes. No matter what stage of life you are at, we can tailor your estate plan to your circumstances.
PROBATE AND ADMINISTRATION OF AN ESTATE
The death of a loved one is always difficult for those left behind. We can assist executors and family members to understand their obligations and make the required court applications to deal with the estate.
DISPUTES AND ESTATE LITIGATION
Disputes over an estate can be very difficult on families. Our lawyers will work to ensure that your interests are protected while minimizing damage to family relationships.
Disputes can arise for many reasons. Executors and personal representatives have obligations they must fulfill. They are responsible for communicating with the beneficiaries and probating the estate in a timely manner. They are also responsible for protecting the estate’s assets.
Disputes can also arise over the validity or interpretation of a will, who should administer the estate, or what a beneficiary is entitled to. The lawyers at Gunn Law Group can assist no matter what side of the dispute you are on.
POWER OF ATTORNEY
Edmonton’s Gunn Law Group’s wills and estates expertise allows us to assist you in your decision to grant power of attorney. Giving a person or persons power of attorney allows them to represent you when performing certain legal transactions.
A power of attorney contract gives the designated individual(s) permission to perform day-to-day administrative tasks like signing cheques on your behalf, as well as more complex transactions such as borrowing money or selling real estate on your behalf.
Choosing to delegate financial responsibilities through power of attorney is an important decision that should be made with the support and advice of legal professionals, and we are here to make this process as seamless as possible.
