Toronto Estate Planning Law Firm

Estate and Probate Solutions for Individuals and Families

Individuals and families have numerous wealth protection needs. Common questions and concerns include:

  • How can I shield my estate and my children from taxes upon my death?
  • How can I protect the inheritance I leave my children in the event of my children's matrimonial breakdown or divorce?
  • How can I pass down or transfer special assets such as a business or cottage?
  • I have real property located in more than one country. How is foreign property transferred upon death, and can a will drafted in one country conflict with a will drafted elsewhere?

At O'Sullivan Estate Lawyers LLP, we provide a variety of solutions to all of your concerns. Through domestic contracts, we can protect your property against claims in the event of marital breakdown and death. Using trusts and multi-jurisdictional wills, we can minimize tax obligations and ensure that property in other countries is transferred efficiently and at minimum expense. And through our probate fee minimization strategies, we can help shield your assets from high probate taxes and an increasingly expensive and regulated probate process.
