 Consult a Disinhertance Lawyer to Protect Your Rights

In British Columbia, the Wills Estates and Successions Act (WESA), introduced in 2014, plays a pivotal role in governing affairs after someone’s passing. One significant aspect of this legislation is the provision for children to apply for variations to their parents’ will if they feel they have been inadequately provided for.

If you find yourself unfairly excluded from a will, our team is here to provide compassionate and strategic representation. We understand the delicate nature of these cases and work diligently to protect your interests and your assets.
