Planning for the future can feel intimidating, particularly when it comes to Wills and Estate Succession. At Paperclip Law, we understand how important it is to ensure that your loved ones and your legacy, are properly protected in the event of your death.
You Will Need A Will
We all know that no one likes to think about unfortunate circumstances. For those you care about, creating a will early on can help eliminate a great deal of unnecessary stress and confusion during one of the most difficult times of their lives. Working with an experienced legal team makes it easy to ensure that your Will clearly communicates your wishes, handles any outstanding debts, and distributes the estate as you wish as tax-efficiently and headache-free as possible, and that everyone’s best interests are kept in mind.
Transparency + Accessibility = Peace of Mind
At Paperclip Law, we believe that Will and Estate Law should be simple, clear, and accessible. We’re here to guide you through each step and offer our expertise so you have full confidence that your final wishes are upheld through the early and proactive planning of the allocation of your estate’s assets and debts.
We assist our clients with a wide variety of will and estate matters, such as:
Incapacity Planning (or Lifetime Planning)
Incapacity and lifetime planning ensures there is a clear directive for your wishes should an unexpected health issue arise. If you become unable to handle your own legal affairs, having a plan in place guarantees that your chosen representative, medical team, and other related individuals have clear directions to follow.
Legal documents and considerations in this area include:
- Powers of attorney
- Representation agreements for health care
- Living Wills
- Committee applications (for those who are no longer capable of managing their affairs, but have not or cannot appoint a power of attorney)
Estate planning encompasses all details pertaining to the allocation of your personal assets upon your passing. Having the right documentation and structure in place helps to protect beneficiaries against any unnecessary confusion or stress during this difficult and emotional time.
Related services include:
- Life insurance trusts
- Acting as an executor or trustee in your will or trust
- Serving as an alternate executor or trustee as needed
Ensuring your wishes are carried out after you’re gone is one of the best ways to provide peace and reassurance to your loved ones. Our estate administration services are designed to provide clarity and reassurance during this time of transition. We are happy to answer any questions that may arise and provide as much (or as little) assistance as required.
Our support includes:
- Guiding executors and trustees through the process and necessary steps of carrying out your wishes.
- Probate applications for those who have passed away with an originally signed will.
- Administration applications and variations of probate in the event of someone passing away without a valid will, or in the absence of the originally executed will.
