Wills & Estate

The most important thing you can do for your family is to have a plan in place. And it doesn’t have to be complicated.

The Importance of Wills and Estate Planning

Planning for the future of your loved ones can be a daunting undertaking. Issues of tax implications, asset allocation, and other legal concerns can all be overwhelming. Dealing with matters relating to your family can also be a sensitive issue. Our team of wills & estate lawyers understand all this. They’ll help you navigate this complex, but necessary process, ensuring your family is fully protected.

Services We Offer

Wills

Wills allow you to distribute your assets according to your wishes. Without one, the Alberta legal system determines how your estate will be distributed. We’ll help you draft up your will that will benefit your family when you pass.

Power of Attorneys

The Power of Attorney document allows someone of your choosing to represent you in any legal decisions regarding your assets. If you lose mental or physical capacity, you’ll have someone you trust to handle your financial affairs on your behalf.

Personal Directives

Should you lose mental capacity, a personal directive allows a representative to make health-related decisions for you. These decisions can include treatment options, where you’ll live, and who’ll be your guardian.

Trusts

Setting up a trust can give you many benefits, including better protection of your assets, tax advantages, and control of your inheritance. We’ll assist you on all aspects of preparing a trust tailored to your circumstances.

Estate Administration

Stringam assists executors and personal representatives with all aspects of estate administration. Estate administration involves the process of distributing someone’s assets upon their passing.
