Wills and Estates

Wills and Estates

Your will is your primate estate planning document that speaks to your wishes at the date of your death. It outlines your unique instructions for how you intend for your estate to be handled or distributed, who you wish to handle such distribution, and who you choose to be appointed as guardians for your minor children. In certain circumstances, a Testamentary Trust within your will may also be appropriate for a minor child who is a beneficiary. At AG Lawfirm, we fully discuss those circumstances with you and advise you on what suits you best.

Without a Will, your assets will be distributed according to legislation which may not be according to your wishes and could result in higher administration costs. It is also crucial to review your Will on a regular basis to ensure that it remains according to your interests or whenever your life circumstances change, such as financial changes, marriage, or the birth of a child. 
 
At AG Lawfirm, we review individual life circumstances to provide you with the best suited estate planning options that are based on your needs and the applicable legislation.
