Wills & Estate Planning
BOUTIQUE KELOWNA FAMILY LAW FIRM
At Maio Law we don’t just help you create a will, we help you understand it. A will might be one of the most important documents for a person to have. Especially when one owns real estate and personal property.
What you need to know about Legal Wills
Creating the proper plan involves a thorough examination of your assets and liabilities and your wishes before and after you pass. Maio Law will also advise you on the various aspects involved in the estate process, from choosing the right executor to ensuring beneficiaries are properly accounted for.
Maio Law has the skill set, ability, and commitment for estate planning to ensure that your Will is valid and legally binding. Throughout the process, Maio Law is here to help answer all of your questions while providing you with peace of mind.
With a will, an individual can control how they wish for assets to pass to loved ones. A Will helps manage, mitigate, or even avoid conflict that may occur within a family that relates to how your assets are distributed upon your death. Without a will, your estate will devolve according to the Wills, Estates, and Succession Act.
Representation Agreements permit someone that you have selected to make personal and health care related decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. The agreement reflects the specific instructions and directions that you have indicated and provides lawful authority to an individual to implement them with respect to your care after you have lost capacity and/or the ability to provide informed consent.
Powers of Attorney is another form of legal document that permits another individual to act on your behalf and make decisions with respect to your financial and legal matters. This document along with a Representation Agreement provides a valuable complement to your Will and forms a complete estate plan that functions to address your future needs and wishes as they arise and in circumstances where you are incapable to deal with them independently.
From intake to execution Maio Law will walk you through each step in the estate planning process to assist in creating your personal will. Maio Law uses the latest in estate planning technology to give you an overview of your estate assets and liabilities. In the planning stage we also work with you, and your accountant if necessary, to ensure tax savings and reduced probate fees.
