No one enjoys thinking about their death, but it might be more necessary than you think. Have you thought about what will happen to your family after you are no longer there to provide for them? Do you know how your estate and assets will be distributed among your family? Do you know who will make important decisions about you and your family when you no longer can?

But what if Mom likes her church or a charity more than you. This is a problem when parents leave their estates to charities rather than their own children. Two BC Court of Appeal cases have tackled this issue.
