It’s often hard for healthy adults to consider a future in which they may not be able to care for themselves, their children, spouse or elderly parents. There may even be fear or reluctance to address the issues or a sense that the process will be overwhelming. At the Peter Millard Law Office, we want to help you manage your wills and estates around Kawartha Lakes. We create a practical, positive approach to planning for the security of your family and your business and to see that your wishes regarding long-term care and end-of-life are clear. We will consider such issues as:
Appointing a guardian for your children and/or a trustee for property that you leave to them
Choosing an executor to administer your estate and ensure that your wishes are carried out
How to minimize estate and probate taxes
If you need to provide for family members with special needs, if you have a business that must be divided or if you have many kinds of property that need to be distributed appropriately, we are experienced in dealing with such issues and will walk you through the decision-making process and ensure that your wishes and intentions are clearly articulated for your heirs and executors.
