The family unit is ever changing and transforming.  Lawyers practicing in either family or estates law must be aware of the impact their advice can have in the many areas of a client’s life. Questions arise, such as:

  • Should a lawyer act for one party in a domestic contract and then draft wills for both parties if the clients consent?
  • What types of instructions should be acknowledged in writing?
  • What should be included in a checklist for security for support after death for Separation Agreements?
  • Who  is  the "spouse"  of  a  deceased  for  pension  rights  and  for  Succession  Law  Reform  Act  (SLRA) claims?  What is the effect of a pension survivor benefit on SLRA claims? What can we learn from Carrigan (Version 4 from the Divisional Court)?

 Join seasoned Family and Estates lawyers who will discuss these, and other, common pitfalls and solutions.
