Make It Simple!

Get your affairs in order folks. Avoid probate if at all possible. In BC it is a 12 to 18 month process if not longer and the only winners are the lawyers!

    1. The primary thing is to put all bank accounts, deeds and titles (home and vehicle) in joint names so the surviving partner (or executor) has immediate access to money and can sell things without waiting months/years. Willea had never been married or been in a relationship so everything is in his sole name.
