Will and succession
Your notary is here to guide you in your procedures.
A will is an essential document that allows your last wishes to be heard by your heirs, despite your absence. Even if it not obligatory to have a will, it is advantageous for you and for your family to have one. You can express your wishes regarding the distribution of your estate following your death. Since it is the only authentic will in Quebec, the notarized will is the safest and most useful document for your family.
Preparation and drafting of a will
A notary is an ally in the preparation and drafting of your will. He will ask you the right questions to know all the information to include in your will. Who will be your heirs? Who will be the liquidator of your succession? Who will be the guardian of your minor children? What are your instructions for your funeral? These are just a few of the questions your notary will ask you.
After having gathered all the essential information, your notary will draft the document in a clear and precise manner. The will must leave no room for misinterpretation by your liquidator or your family.

What happens when you die and do not have a will?
When someone dies and does not have a will, it is the law that decides who will be the heirs. You are not married, and you do not have a will? Your children will inherit your patrimony. If you have a common-law partner and you have children, your partner, your parents, your brothers, and sisters will not inherit. Are you childless? Half of your property will go to your parents and the other half to your brothers and sisters. You are not married, and you do not have kids or alive parents? Your brothers and sisters will inherit.
