Prince George Estate Lawyer - We've all heard the old saying, "The only things that are certain are death and taxes." We are constantly reminded of both issues by the daily news, and by businesses and institutions advertising their wealth-management services.
Our wills and estates lawyers advise our clients on all factors of estate and personal planning. Our services consist of codicils, preparation of wills, power of attorney, living wills and guardianship issues. We work together with a diverse range of trust arrangements to accommodate clients' particular needs.
Our lawyers working on wills and estates problems with rely heavily on the experts within our company on family law matters. Amongst the services we offer consist of marriage contract preparation and cohabitation agreements. We act as counsel in issues of divorce and separation, property division, custody, and support. We know that matters associated to family law and estate law are amongst the most inclined to litigation. Individuals and families are susceptible and need personalized service with understanding to all the problems involved.
We represent clients in family law proceedings and dependent relief, will contestation and interpretation, variation of trust proceedings, passing of accounts, acting as litigation guardian for minors, and litigation trustees. Due to the nature of these areas, our goal is to help clients attain their objectives through mediation as well as various alternative types of dispute resolution instead of through litigation.
Clients benefit from our skill in complex tax planning as we assist families with their retirement planning, wealth planning, avoiding or minimizing of probate tax, and various taxation related to death. Presently there is an unprecedented transference of wealth taking place, both on a corporate and individual level, from one generation to another. We offer services to assist family businesses in matters of other corporate reorganizations, estate freezing, succession, shareholder and partnership agreements, as well as general compensation
Other services we provide comprise helping clients with gifting programs, life insurance trusts, education savings plans, immigration trusts, creditor-proofing mechanisms, guardianships or trusts in problems of disability, domestic and off-shore trust planning, and charitable giving planning.
When death happens, we can assist with the administration of the estate for those representatives of the estate. We may be appointed either by the deceased through a will or court appointment to act as the directly nominated estate representative.
