The death of a loved one can either bring a British Columbia family together or cause contention. When the process of settling the estate results in confrontations, questions and suspicions, the parties involved may consider estate litigation. However, that may not always be the best option or even be necessary.
Owning a family business anywhere, including here in British Columbia, requires a great deal of work and dedication. Over the years, the needs of the business could change many times, and it could experience ups and downs. Other family members may pitch in and make valuable contributions to the family business that help make it a success. When the owner passes away, those family members may expect to see a larger inheritance as compensation for the unpaid work put into the company.
