Knowledgeable Estate Lawyers for Will Interpretation

Will interpretation issues will generally arise if there is any ambiguity in a will or the intentions of a testator are unclear.  A beneficiary can apply to challenge a will if that beneficiary is displeased with the way in which a will was interpreted by the executor. Executors should consult with an estate lawyer early in order to protect themselves from costly personal liability and prolonged estate litigation.

The team of knowledgeable lawyers at Eisen Law can provide you with the necessary guidance to help you navigate your responsibilities, assist you in making informed and knowledgeable decisions, protect beneficiaries, and avoid significant risk. We have many years of focused and specialized experience as well as significant courtroom experience and can guide you through this often daunting process.

Do you need assistance with will interpretation?

The executor of a will must act prudently and be careful when administering a will, particularly if there is any ambiguity in the document or if interpretation issues arise. If necessary, an executor can bring an application to an Ontario Court to interpret the will. In doing so, the executor may be protected under the Trustee Act. Consulting with an estate lawyer is an important step that an executor should take to protect themselves.
