The following are some questions that our wills and estates lawyers in Winnipeg receive all the time.
What Is Probate?
In simple terms, the process of determining whether or not a will is valid by the court is probate. The process goes beyond just the will's validity and covers the meaning of the will's terms. Once the court confirms the will's validity, it will issue a Grant of Probate to the executor/executrix.
What Is a Power of Attorney?
When you give someone Power of Attorney, they have the authority to act on your behalf. It can be general, which means the person can do whatever you're legally allowed to do. It can also be specific, which means they only have the authority to perform particular acts.
Why Should I Have a Power of Attorney?
Assigning a Power of Attorney gives you control over decisions regarding your property and affairs if you lose your mental capacity or mobility.
What Is a Health Care Directive?
A Health Care Directive also called a living will, lists out medical procedures you do or do not want. It covers the scenario where you're unable to make these decisions yourself.
