A Legal Will (last will and testament) helps to Protect yourself and your Family by helping to ensure that the right people are provided for when you pass on.
A Will is not a Power of Attorney. Wills comes into effect once a person has passed. A Power of Attorney is in effect while a person is alive.
You have 2 main options:
1) Have a lawyer draft a Last Will and Testament for you. This is the proper way and ensures your documentation is prepared properly and in accordance with the governing laws of Manitoba.
2) Take your chances and attempt to draft your own Last Will and Testament, following all of the formalities of the Wills Act of Manitoba. Do-it-yourself Last Will and Testaments leave you with no insurance against your own mistakes. Your work will not be reviewed by a Notary, you are on your own as to the form, content and validity of your self-drafted Last Will and Testament. If you make a mistake or mistakes: A. Your intentions may not be upheld; B. Your document may not be of use re any institutions; C. Your document may be inadmissible as a valid Last Will and Testament to the Court of Queen’s Bench, Probate Division, Manitoba; etc. In short, you may leave your Estate in a mess. In general, a Notary does not notarize a Last Will and Testament but, can in some cases agree to notarize Affidavits of Execution. Our office though does not notarize do-it-yourself Last Will and Testament documents.
If you decide to do-it-yourself, take heed of the warnings on websites that facilitate the do-it-yourself drafting of Last Will and Testaments. Such websites usually explicitly state that they do not substitute for the assistance of a lawyer.
