ESTATE PLANNING (WILL PREPARATION)
For persons or couples with minimal assets, I recognize the importance of having a Will and Powers of Attorney, so I offer a special discounted fee as a service to my community: $200 - 400 + HST, otherwise:
For one person:
Estate planning, Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney for Property, and Power of Attorney for Personal Care: $400-700* + HST
For a couple (husband and wife):
Estate planning, two Last Wills and Testaments, two Powers of Attorney for Property, and two Powers of Attorney for Personal Care: $700-1,000* + HST
* The process of getting a Will done at my firm includes estate planning, takes approximately a month and a half, includes several face-to-face meetings, gives you a chance to organize things on your end (with my help), gives you a chance to ask many questions, and ends with the signing of all required documents. See Will Making Process - Explained for further details.
