Wills and Estates
WILLS & ESTATES, POWERS OF ATTORNEY

Nachla Law Office takes an educational approach to Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probates, all of which are FLAT FEE SERVICES. Because we believe in the importance of Estate Planning, Wills and Powers of Attorney, we offer very competitive rates well below market rates to make these legal services accessible and affordable. Wills, Powers of Attorney, Probates and even Secondary Wills are all FLAT FEE SERVICES at Nachla Law Office. Please call/email us today to receive our Wills and Estates FLAT FEE SHEET.

Wills should be updated, and possibly changed, periodically throughout your lifetime in accordance with your circumstances. For instance, your Will is voided if you Marry or Divorce, and so any change in your spousal status requires that you make a new Will.

Probate

Probate is the procedure by which the Trustee(s) or Executor(s) that you have named in your Will is given a Certificate by the Estates Office that enables him or her to administer your Will. The term Probate is still used, however, in actuality it is now called a Certificate of Appointment of an Estate Trustee with a Will, or a Certificate of Appointment of an Estate Trustee Without a Will.

What happens if I should die and I did not make a Will?

Should you die without a Will (Intestate), probate procedures are more complicated, and the distribution of your assets according to Legislation, may not be what you want. A lack of a Will may cause inter-family strife as family members argue about your intentions, which were not set out in writing. Often the greatest cause of concern is that there is no Guardian named for the children, and you have not personally chosen the person that Will manage the funds for your minor children after your death.

Powers of Attorney

There are 2 types of Powers of Attorney, both equally important:

Powers of Attorney are just as important as the Will, and it has become the norm for people to have a Wills Package, that includes the two Powers of Attorney.

Generally, a Power of Attorney is a document in which you name person(s) to act on your behalf in case you lose legal capacity to deal with your own affairs. Powers of Attorney give the person(s) named the right to do everything you can do, in your place, except make a Will.

Continuing Power of Attorney for Property

The Continuing Power of Attorney for Property deals with the management of all assets and debts in the Province of Ontario that are registered or held in your name.

Although there is some risk of abuse of power, that risk is small compared to the risk involved if you lose your ability to deal with your own affairs through illness or accident.

Continuing Power of Attorney for Personal Care
This is also often called "Living Will." In the Continuing Power of Attorney for Personal Care, you state who can make decisions affecting your health and personal care if you are incapable of doing so. That can include giving or withholding consent to medical treatment.

Often, people make a Continuing Power of Attorney for Personal Care for the specific reason that they feel strongly they do not want heroic measures if there is no hope for recovery from a vegetative or dying state. If this is your concern, it is wise to document your wishes in a Continuing Power of Attorney for Personal Care, if for no other reason than to ease the guilt of your loved ones should this issue arise.

What if I should become incapacitated and I do not have any Powers of Attorney?

If you should become incapacitated or otherwise unable to manage your affairs, and you do not have any Continuing Powers of Attorney, the Ministry of the Attorney General for Ontario has a department, namely the Public Guardian and Trustee, that will take over the management of your affairs even though you may be married and have close family. There are lengthy procedures to allow for the Public Guardian and Trustee to appoint one or more people to manage your affairs, however, this may not be the person(s) that you would have chosen. There may be inter-family conflict about who should act as your Attorney. Generally, having the Government step in and manage your affairs costs money, because the government charges for the management services.
