A will is the most important part of your estate plan. It puts your plan in place so that your loved ones will receive the assets that you intended to give them upon your death.

The Benefits of Writing a Will
There are major benefits associated with having a legal will. Without a will, provincial legislation will make the decisions for you. Why not take charge. You decide the:

  • Executor of your estate
  • Beneficiaries of your estate
  • Guardian of your Children under 18
  • The age when your childeren will receive their inheritance

Understanding the Limitations of Your Will
There are some assests that may not be included in your will ie. insurance and investments.
W. Russell Monteith can help you assess these items as part of your estate plan in order to establish who will receive these assets upon your passing.

Concerned About Your Children's Future If You Are The Victim of Misfortune?
A will allows you to protect your children's future. Ontario legislation provides for parents, in their Will, to designate someone to have custody of their children who are under age18.

Also in your Will, you can set up a trust fund to provide for your children's support and education.
