DO YOU NEED A WILL?

Your will is like an instruction manual for your loved ones that becomes activated upon your passing. It tells your loved ones:

  • Who is designated and authorized to execute your wishes
  • Who will be elected to care for your children
  • What will be done with your property and other assets
  • What kind of funeral and burial
  • Arrangements should be made

If you pass away without a legal will, these decisions are often left to the discretion of the court or public curator. Instead of carrying out your wishes, your loved ones may be left in conflicts which often lead to complex and costly legal proceedings. Completing your Will offers you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your wishes will be followed and your loved ones protected when you pass.

Questions? We've Got Answers!

What is a will?

A will is a legal document that sets in writing your wishes regarding the division of your personal property and assets after your death. It allows you to provide information concerning issues such as: The distribution of your property and your assets The appointment of the person who will carry out the terms of your estate (the liquidator) and his or her successor, if any The remuneration of the liquidator, if applicable The choice of guardian for your minor children Funeral and burial arrangements

Who can make a will?

Any person sound of mind can prepare a will. However, with regard to minors, only low-value goods can be included in a will.

Can a couple create a joint will?

No, a will is an individual document, even if you are married. Under Quebec law, a will must be able to changed by one person only. In other words, if several people prepare a will and want to change it later, one person cannot make decisions on his or her own, a state of affairs the law aims to prevent.  However, an exception exists: marriage contracts prepared by a notary authorize a joint will.

In our marriage contract, a clause stipulates that all property and assets shall be left to the remaining spouse. Do we still need a will?

If you wish for all of your property and assets to be transferred to your spouse should you pass away before him or her, you are not required to write a will. WARNING: such a clause is only valid if the marriage contract is notarized. However, it may be advisable to prepare a will. In addition to recording your wishes as to the division of your property and your assets, a will serves to appoint a trusted person as liquidator as well as communicate your wishes regarding your funeral and burial arrangements, and custody of your minor children, as the case may be. Also, should you want to leave property or assets to your children, other family members or friends, you must draw up a will. A will allows you to elect various heirs and deem what portion of various assets you wish to bequeath to each, which a marriage contract cannot do.

What types of wills are recognized in Quebec?

Three types of wills that exist in Quebec. Holographic Will: A holographic will is a document written entirely by hand and signed by the Testator. The advantage of such a will is that it is simple to complete and costs nothing. However, with this kind of will, you expose yourself several risks. Since it is not signed before witnesses, this  type of will is the most common to be contested  and may then not be validated by the court. Will signed before witnesses: A will signed before witnesses is a document prepared by a lawyer and signed by the you, the Testator, and two witnesses (who must not be heirs). One advantage of this type of will is that witnesses can authenticate your wishes. On the other hand, a will signed before witnesses must be homologated upon your passing as it is not considered a priori as authentic.

What will happen if I die without a will?

Dying without a will leaves numerous questions unanswered regarding your funeral and burial arrangements, division of your assets and guardianship of your minor children, as the case may be. If you pass away without a will, it is up to the court to choose a liquidator for your estate and determine how your belongings and assets will be distributed. In many cases, family conflicts can emerge, resulting in lengthly and costly court battles.  We recommend that each person complete a will to record their wishes and update it regularly to ensure that in the event of their death, their wishes will be respected and their family will be spared conflict and litigation that may result.
