Losing a loved one can be an emotional and stressful time. The Government of Ontario has posted the webpage “What to do when someone dies” to help you cope with the loss with as little stress over the practical matters as possible. The webpage provides helpful information on many issues such as: funeral arrangements, death registration, Wills and estate administration. While a funeral director can typically help you with issues such as funeral arrangements and death registration, a lawyer is there to help with the administration of the estate. Estates administration can be a complicated process and guidance from a lawyer can be extremely beneficial.
