Wills and Estates

wills and estatesPreparing a will is usually not at the front of our minds, but the importance of a properly executed will cannot be understated.  Our estate services will not only give you piece of mind, but will also protect your loved ones from undue stress and hardship.  We can help with a wide range of services that will ensure a plan is in place to see that your wishes are followed through such as:

Preparation of Wills – Without a properly executed will, your estate would be administered according to general rules laid down by government.  We can help you prepare a will that reflects YOUR intentions and wishes.  Our years of experience will help you prepare for things that you have not even thought about yet.

Powers of Attorney – If you lose the mental capacity to take care of your affairs, you can protect yourself by appointing someone you trust to act on your behalf by giving them power of attorney.  We can help both you and your appointed person in drafting the necessary documents and explain the responsibilities and limitations for someone with power of attorney.
Administration of Estates or Trusts – We understand that being an executor of an estate or a trustee can be overwhelming with the legal hurdles involved.  The experts at Kidston & Co. have the knowledge and valuable experience to help you through it all and be there if disputes arise.

Everybody’s personal situation is different, but whether you have a simple estate to divide among the children or business interests to arrange succession for, we can help you find the solutions you need.  We will even bring up those issues that you haven’t even thought of yet.
