One thing the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us is that life circumstances can change overnight. Even with the best planning, we cannot entirely avoid the challenges that are inherent to life. We can, however, make plans to weather those storms.
Having a will and a representation agreement is a very practical way to “weather the storms” of life. While having a well-prepared will and representation agreement is important from a legal point of view, preparing these legal documents also compel us to consider what we want for the end of our lives and compel us to have important conversations with our loved ones while we still can.
For these reasons, we encourage our clients to begin considering their end-of-life plans earlier rather than later. In the same vein, we encourage our clients to have the important conversations with their loved ones earlier rather than later, and to keep those conversations on an on-going basis.
Our team at Kitsilano Family Law is able to assist in drafting simple wills and representation agreements. Feel free to get in-touch with us about your options.
We wish you the best during these challenging times.
