Writing your Will may be one of the most important things you'll ever do. A properly drafted Will can help ensure that your property is divided the way you intended and benefits the people you intended.
This booklet describes what a Will is and the important points to remember when making a Will. It also explains the duties and responsibilities of the people appointed to look after your property when you die.
The law regarding Wills and Estates is described here in general terms. This is not meant to be a legal authority on the subject, nor a self help kit on making a Will or distributing an estate. For specific legal advice you should consult a lawyer and may also require advice from other professionals, such as an accountant or other estate planner.Original Publisher: [Saskatoon, Sask.] : Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan, 2013Language(s): English
