Do I need a lawyer?
Most people can prepare their own wills without the cost of retaining a lawyer. However, there are some situations when it is recommended that you do retain a lawyer. You should consult a lawyer if you are:
- about to be married, separated or are in the process of getting divorced
- the owner of a large, complex estate
- very old or suffering from mental or physical disabilities
- the owner of real estate outside your province or country of residence, or
- disinheriting a child or spouse.
