A will is a legal document where an executor is appointed, beneficiaries are named and an individual’s wishes regarding the distribution of their assets is outlined. In Ontario, if you die without a will, the law will determine who receives your property, your estate may not be administered by someone you choose, and your assets may not be distributed to person(s) you wish benefit. A professionally prepared will can remedy these issues.
In addition, at some point you or someone you love may become temporarily or permanently incapable of making decisions. Planning for incapacity is crucial and essential.
At Swiderski Law Professional Corporation we help our clients to ensure their persons and property are legally protected in the event of incapacity. We help our clients to plan for incapacity generally through two types of powers of attorney; power of attorney for property and power of attorney for personal care.
A continuing power of attorney for property allows you to give others the legal authority to make decisions regarding your property and finances. A power of attorney for personal care allows you to give authority to others to make decisions about your health care, nutrition, shelter, hygiene and safety.
