Talk to a Pax Law Lawyer today!

Wills or estate plans often include three essential documents or the Last Testaments. A will or a Last Testament provides you with an opportunity to decide who looks after your affairs if you become incapacitated in one way or the other, or after you die. This legal document will also indicate your wishes as to who inherits your estate. Proper drafting of a will is essential to its validity, effectiveness, and functionality. In BC law we have the Wills Variation Act which permits courts to modify wills should it be necessary. Our expertise can ensure you that your Will will perform as you intended to do so. Should you not have a valid will upon death, the local laws will determine how your affairs will be administered and who will inherit your estate.
