As the sayings goes, the only thing sure in life is death and taxes…so….
Recently my good friend Avideh ( Av-a-day) who is a Wills and Estates lawyer, was on the Global Trouble Shooter, highlighting some new changes to Alberta law that could have some shocking results.
Here are a few of the not no pleasant details.
If you have kids and no will…and you die…your kids will go to foster care until your family gets a court order to get custody.
If your significant other is living with you in your home and you die, they have the right to say in your house and be supported until the estate is settled.
If you are in your second marriage…and you die, you need a clause in your will to protect the estate set aside for your kids.
