Wills

HAVE YOU BEEN TREATED UNFAIRLY IN A WILL?

If you are a spouse or child who has been unfairly treated in a Will, the Wills Variation Act in British Columbia provides a statutory scheme under which some challenges to a will can be made. Sinclare & Company is pleased to be your guide to understanding the British Columbia Wills Variation Act, and can provide experienced representation for clients in WVA proceedings.

[110]     Section 2 of the Wills Variation Act reads:

“Despite any law or statute to the contrary, if a testator dies leaving a will that does not, in the court’s opinion, made adequate provision for the proper maintenance and support of the testator’s spouse or children, the court may, in its discretion, in an action by or on behalf of the spouse or children, order that the provision that it thinks adequate, just and equitable in the circumstances be made out of the testator’s estate for the spouse or children.”

Mr. Christopher Sinclare understands that Will disputes can be complex and are sure to be complicated with many differing emotions. Such matters require experienced legal counsel who can deal with clients in a sympathetic manner. If you believe that you have been unfairly left out of a Will, or that the terms of a Will are unfair, please contact the Sinclare & Company Law Offices at 250.338.6766
