Legal Advice

There are many reasons to engage the services of a lawyer when drafting your will:

  • To provide legal advice on the most effective way to structure an estate
  • To ensure that the will is legally valid
  • To ensure that there is no confusion about your final wishes
  • To ensure that beneficiaries are correctly named

Why I Wrote A Will

Several years ago I decided it was time to write my will.

By outward appearances I was not the usual candidate. At the time, I was barely in my 30s, single, and had no children. I had, however, just purchased a house. The lawyer handling the sale offered to draft a simple will at a very reasonable price.

It’s a simple will. It outlines what to do what my assets and specifies bequests to my family, my local Seventh-day Adventist church, and the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Canada.
