Estate Litigation 101:  Will, Guardianship and POA Challenges

Estate Litigation 101: Will, Guardianship & Power of Attorney Challenges

Even with careful estate planning disputes can arise: a will may be challenged, a Power of Attorney accused of misusing funds, or children may disagree about parents' long-term care. Lawyer Paul Andrews covers what you can do. Of interest to those with an estate plan, children managing their parents' affairs, families coping with dementia, and anyone expecting to benefit from a will.

This event is free to adults, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online or by phone at (613) 549-8888.  Saturday, October 26, Sydenham branch, 2 p.m.  (This is a repeat of the presentation from Thursday, October 10 at the Central branch.)
