Fighting Terms of a Will

Jacklynn Pivovar discusses how to avoid unwanted claims through proper estate planning

In this presentation you will learn about how some estate claims arise and how to avoid them. This includes information about the formal requirements for a valid will, the use of will kits, family support claims, property owned jointly with someone else and how things like “capacity” and “undue influence” may affect the intention of a person making a will. You will learn about the potential problems often seen in estate disputes and how to avoid them before they happen.

Hosted by: Jacklynn Pivovar, LLB, Partner, Miller Thomson LLP
