Information to help you prepare your will:
Preparing Your Will
Discussions with your family and professional advisors will help you make decisions best suited to your needs and wishes.
Will Planning Questionnaire
Consider what your estate is currently worth, but also consider future sources of wealth.
Seek Legal Advice
You should meet with a legal advisor when you are ready to put it all together.
If you don't have a will...
Without a will, provincial law decides how your estate will be distributed and that may be very different from what you want.
Usually, your spouse receives a certain amount of your estate, and the balance is then divided among your spouse and children. Portions for children under 18 will probably have to be paid into court.
If you don't have children and if you aren't married, everything will usually go to your parents, brothers or sisters.
Should you be looking for legal assistance to complete your will, FBC has forged a partnership with a leading Canadian legal firm, Miller Thomson, to offer preferred pricing on legal services for our Members.
