Ottawa Estate Planning Lawyers
Planning for your family’s future is of utmost importance, regardless of your stage in life in which you find yourself. While many don’t like to think about it, most people are unsure of the answer to important questions:
- When you die or become otherwise incapacitated, do you know what will become of your assets?
- Do you know who will administer your estate?
- Will loved ones be able to obtain needed benefits?
- Will your loved ones face serious tax repercussions?
Because all too many put off estate planning until it is too late, the consequences can be serious.
If you are considering putting together an estate plan, it is of immense importance to partner with an experienced lawyer who will document everything to explicitly define your wishes and avoid preventable tax burdens and other consequences.
