Avoid These Estate Planning Mistakes

The will and estate lawyers of Morrow, Morrow & Crosbie can help you avoid the following estate planning mistakes:

  • Not creating a will — Did you know that only a third of Newfoundland adults actually have a will? While you may have the intention of your assets being distributed to your children, spouse, charity, or other entities, without a legal will, the courts ultimately decide where your assets will go. 
  • Not setting up a trust — By setting up a trust, you will protect the amount and identity of those who receive your will. To ensure your estate plans remain private, it’s always best to establish a living trust. This type of legal document details the amount entitled to certain individuals. 
  • Failing to update estate plans — Have you recently married, welcomed a new family member, or become single? These are all events worthy of updating your will and estate plan. All too often, individuals who go through a messy divorce accidentally leave their assets to their ex-spouse by not having a real estate lawyer update their will and estate documents. 
  • Forgetting disability or impairment plans — Many believe that estate planning only involves the distribution of property after they’ve left the earthly realm. But, a comprehensive will and estate plan should include power-of-attorney instructions in the event that you should become temporarily or permanently incapacitated.
