Culos & Co. Law Corporation is fully equipped to assist you with multiple estate planning options, including:

WILLS

This is an important part of planning for your family’s future. If you die without a Will, your property and assets will be divided according to B.C Law, and the costs to administer an estate can increase.

If you have minor children, it is especially important to appoint a guardian for their care should anything happen to you.

REPRESENTATION AGREEMENTS

A Representation Agreement will allow you to have another person help you make decisions (or, if you lose your capacity, to make decisions for you) on matters of health care, personal care, living arrangements and certain legal obligations.

POWERS OF ATTORNEY

A Power of Attorney can be an efficient and inexpensive means of providing for management of necessary business in the event of later incompetence. It gives the designated person the power to take care of financial and legal matters on your behalf. This can include paying bills, banking, or selling real estate for you.

COMMITTEESHIPS

A Committee is a court appointed person to make personal, medical, legal and/or financial decisions for someone who is mentally incapable, and does not have an effective Power of Attorney and/or Representation Agreement.
