This seminar, the first in a series of three covering succession planning, is a must for anyone who has made or is contemplating making a will.
It will focus on the importance of having a will in place, cover the keys elements of a valid will, the areas that give rise to problems with wills, and offer solutions to these pitfalls.
Topics will include spousal, children and co-habitant rights, cross border issues, guardians, trustees, executors and trusts (for minors and incapacitated beneficiaries).
The effect of divorce and separation on wills, and what happens when there is no will, will also be addressed
