  • Drafting Wills – 2013


    Authors: Dennis Pelkie QC, Barbara Stratton QC, Doris Bonora and Lexy Wong

    If you missed the sold-out “Drafting Wills” seminar, you are in luck! This package includes an audio recording of the full day session, as well as the accompanying course materials in electronic format. This audio recording includes seminar sessions on the following topics:

    Drafting with Intention
    Learn about drafting wills to deal with ‘intention’ and what practices you should consider changing including using detailed memos to file, letters of intent, or video-recording of the testator.

    Estate Planning Agreements
    Learn how and when to bind spouses contractually to their wills and go beyond the mutual will contract.

    Drafting for Unknown Matrimonial Property Provisions
    With the uncertainty of the matrimonial property provisions under the Wills and Succession Act, learn the appropriate procedures with respect to matrimonial property.

    Will Substitutes
    Learn how to draft to keep property out of the estate, and draft inter vivos and testamentary trusts for the next generation.

    Drafting Considerations
    Learn about common drafting considerations including survivorship, divorce, inheritance advances, gifts, and executor fees.

    Please note that while these materials are current as of the date of the original seminar, they relate to legislation not yet proclaimed and, as such, they are subject to change prior to the anticipated in force date.

    Note: As it is discussed and recommended by the panel, we have included the paper Can You Do a Binding Covenant Not to Amend Your Will?, by Patricia L. Daunais QC from May 2006 as bonus material.
