ESTATE PLANNING IN QUEBEC

We do not choose to come, we do not choose to go, but we can choose to transmit.

Life is as diverse as the people living it. Each estate is thus different. Life is like a word, it goes, property is like a writing, it stays. To whom would you like to transmit it?

This is what the Law states in case there is no Will:

  • The common law Partner does not inherit.
  • The married spouse or the spouse in a civil union inherits 100% of the estate only if the deceased did not have any children, grand-children parents, brothers and sisters or nephiews and nieces.
  • The estate inherited by a minor must be managed by the surviving parent.
  • If the estate has a value of more than 25 000 $, the surviving parent must offer a surety to guarantee his-her administration of the estate and obtain the proper advice of the tutorship council and the court’s authorizations.
  • In case the second parent of the minor is predeceased, it is the Director of youth protection or the Public curator, depending on the case, that becomes the legal tutor of the minor child.
  • The liquidator chosen by the heirs must have the court’s authoriztion to mortgage or sell an immovable of the estate.

A notarized Will allows you to:

  • Get the proper legal advise to best plan the transmission of your estate.
  • Bequeath your property to whom you want.
  • Support any cause that is important to you by a legacy to any foundation, charity or NGO of your choice.
  • Choose the liquidator and give him/her full power of administration for an optimal settlement of your estate.
  • Choose a legal tutor for your minor children in case the other parent is predeceased.
  • Protect the estate of an hadicaped person or that has special needs.
  • Forecast the long term administration by the establishment of trust.
  • Plan an organ donation after your death
  • Decide of your own funeral arrangements
  • Better protect your heirs against legal action to dispute your Will.
  • Immediately apply the provisions of your Will, this type of Will being the only one that does not require to be probated.
  • Garantee the integrity of the document, the original copy being kept by the notary.
