The death of a loved one is an emotional and difficult time for everyone. But when matters are complicated by legal challenges to the estate, this stressful time can become even more trying. In such a situation, it is important to work with an estate litigator who can help protect your rights and make sure that your loved one’s wishes are honored to the fullest extent possible.
Our legal team is here to help you navigate this complex area of estate law and will assist you with:
If any aspect of your loved one’s estate is challenged in the courts, our lawyers will work on your behalf to get the matter resolved in an effective and time sensitive manner.
In Ontario, disputes over wills and trusts must first go through mediation to see if the matter can be dealt with outside of the court system. Our mediation team has the expertise to help and support you in negotiating the matter. We will review options with you and advise on the best course of action to settle the dispute.
Beneficiaries may not always feel that their loved one’s trustee or executor is acting in their best interests. If this is proven to be the case, they can be removed from their position through the court system. Removing an executor however can be legally complex, and it’s important to have an estate lawyer to help you through this process.
Transferring the accounts of your deceased loved one to their beneficiaries is another area where you may require the assistance of an estate lawyer. For example, there may be matters of estate equalization that must be attended to first. Additionally, there may be estate taxes which first need to be paid out of the estate. By working with estate lawyers, you can help ensure that your rights are protected and avoid any surprise tax bills after the estate has been distributed.
It is essential that your loved one’s will and estate go through the proper probate process. This helps to ensure that there are no other wills in existence and that the will is not challenged after the estate has been distributed.
