Estate Planning

Wills

The Law Office of Liz McMillan understands that estate planning can be a difficult issue to address. However, we cannot stress how important it is to have a Will and Powers of Attorney.

A properly drafted Will can help ensure that your wishes will be followed upon your death and provide clarity for your Executor or Executrix while administering your estate. A Will can also allow your loved ones to focus on grieving, rather than trying to guess what should be done with your estate.

 

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the right to act on your behalf. The person you appoint to act on your behalf is called an “attorney”.

In Ontario, there are three types of Power of Attorney:

  1. A Continuing Power of Attorney for Property which addresses your financial affairs and allows the person(s) you have appointed to act for you even if you become mentally incapable.

  2. A non-Continuing Power of Attorney for Property which addresses your financial affairs and allows the person(s) you have appointed to act on your behalf only when you are mentally capable. A non-Continuing Power of Attorney may be used when you need your attorney to look after your financial affairs while you are away from home or out of the country.

  3. A Power of Attorney for Personal Care which addresses your personal affairs, such as health care or housing decisions, and allows the person(s) you have appointed to act on your behalf to make these decisions if you become mentally incapable.  A Power of Attorney for Personal Care does not allow the person(s) you appoint to make financial decisions on your behalf.

The Law Office of Liz McMillan can assist with your estate planning needs.
