The Steps of Estate Planning

As you plan your estate, you should prepare for the main steps of writing a will and creating an estate plan. When you meet with your Dukeshire Law Office probate lawyer in Calgary, this preparation will help you create a robust will. The main steps of estate planning include:

  • Naming an executor: Choose the person you trust to distribute your assets. Usually, your main beneficiary or spouse acts as executor since they are familiar with your assets.
  • Choosing beneficiaries: Ensure the people closest to you receive the assets they deserve.
  • Appointing a guardian: If you have underage children, you will need to choose who takes care of them should you pass away.
  • Accounting for your assets: Determine everything you would like passed on to your beneficiaries. This can include monetary assets or special belongings.
  • Arranging power of attorney: Name who makes decisions on your behalf if you aren't able to do so yourself.

Your lawyer can help navigate estate laws to craft a binding will. Call 403-286-7008 to meet with our lawyer and start the estate planning process today.
