A Will ensures that your final wishes with respect to land, investments, money, or personal belongings are respected. If you have children under the age of 18, through a Will, you can appoint a guardian and make any trust arrangements for your child's (children's) ongoing care and support. A well drafted Will makes the distribution of your estate more straightforward and can prevent family conflict in the event of your death.

If you would like us to prepare a Will for you, please contact us at 403-265-5440 or click on the following Will questionnaire links to download the appropriate file. Upon completion of the Questionnaire, either fax 403-262-1367 or email it to us at: email@stewartlegalservices.net

Enduring Power of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney allows you to appoint a person to act as your agent if you are unable to act for yourself regarding real estate, financial, or other property matters.

Personal Directive

A Personal Directive allows you to appoint a person to act on your behalf while you are living, in the event you are unable to make your own decisions, in regard to personal matters like health care, accommodation, and other matters not affecting your estate. It also allows you to specify your wishes if you were to be in a vegetative state with no chance of recovery and whether you wish to be kept free from pain even though it may dull consciousness or shorten the length of your life.

Specific Power of Attorney

A Specific Power of Attorney allows you to appoint a person to act for you in a specific capacity. This is most commonly used when an individual is selling or purchasing a home but is not in the country at the time of closing the purchase or sale.
