Our lawyers can help with planning for the future to ensure that your family is taken care of in the way that you wish and that appropriate arrangements are made for the disposition of your assets. We offer estate planning services tailored to the particular needs of your family. You can save your family members from additional stress and conflict by specifically outlining your wishes in a Will or by ensuring that a Power of Attorney is readily available in the event that you are unable to handle your day to day responsibilities. Our lawyers can prepare detailed Healthcare Directives (commonly known as Living Wills) so that your loved ones are equipped to make important medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so.
Because we have an in depth understanding of all facets of family law in the Province of Manitoba, we are able to provide advice and options for estate plans for individuals, couples and all forms of blended families.
Our lawyers are experienced in assisting with applying for probate of Wills on behalf of executors and applying for Letters of Administration for an estate where your loved one passed away without a Will.
Unfortunately, situations will arise where interested parties cannot agree upon the administration of an estate, there is a challenge to the validity of a Will, or some other dispute related to an estate. We are able to use our conflict resolution skills to assist grieving families after the loss of a loved one, should disagreements occur. These conflicts can be resolved through co-operation, mediation, or through the assistance of the court if it is necessary to proceed with litigation. We can offer you guidance through all stages of the court processes, while still trying to resolve your matter as quickly and efficiently as possible.
