Wills & Estates

Wills & EstatesWorried about the future? So are we.

At Foisy Law Offices we understand the importance of ensuring that your family is provided for. Our lawyers understand the complexities of estate planning, but are ready to provide simple and practical advice when it comes to making arrangements for illness or death.

Last Will and Testament

A properly prepared Will ensures that your wishes and intentions will be carried out after your death. A Will also helps minimize expenses and delays in executing these wishes; limiting stress on family members after your death. In the absence of a Will, your estate may be distributed in accordance with provincial legislation.

Not sure where to start? Foisy Law Offices will ensure that your Will properly reflects your wishes.

Already have a will? Circumstances change. We recommend updating your will at least once every three years, or with any major change in financial or family situation.

Enduring Power of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney (or EPA) allows another person, often a close family member or relative, to act on your behalf and manage your legal and personal affairs if you are unable to do so. Preparing an Enduring Power of Attorney before it is needed can save your family considerable headache in a time of crisis.

Personal Directive

A Personal Directive, sometimes referred to as a 'living will', states your desired course of treatment and health care wishes, in the event that become seriously ill and are unable to make these decisions for yourself.
