FAQs related to Wills & Estates:

Generally speaking, you are free to leave your estate to whomever you want. Only a spouse (including a common law spouse) or your children (including adult children) can contest your Will. They must apply to the Supreme Court of British Columbia within six months after the Will has been probated. If you disinherit a spouse or child, you need good reason and proof, or your estate may be vulnerable to attack.
