If you die “intestate”, meaning without a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to the law of the jurisdiction in which you live. In Ontario, relevant legislation outlines an order of distribution regarding who gets what if you die intestate and have no children or grandchildren. However, this order may not reflect your desires.

As you can imagine, the absence of a will can present many challenges for people who are at the same time grieving the loss of a loved one. Depending on the complexity of your estate assets, family relationships and other factors, these challenges could become an administrative nightmare. A valid will, ideally prepared by a lawyer, will help your estate to settle quicker and best ensure your assets go where you desire.
