The webinar was presented by our panelists, Principal Walter MacCallum, Special Counsel Ilana Kacev. Clare Hesbrook facilitated the session.
Elder abuse is on the rise, life expectancy is increasing and Covid-19 has placed added financial pressure on a vast sector of the population. Those factors can inevitably lead to the elderly being at risk of financial abuse and families fighting over the distribution of estates.
In this webinar, our panelists discussed the types of claims that can be made on a person’s estate or Will as well as disputes that might occur during an elderly person’s lifetime when it comes to the management of their financial affairs. Our presenters will discuss these claims as well as strategies that will makers as well as their families can take to minimise and avoid such claims to try and maintain family harmony.
Our panelists covered:
- Myths v facts about who can or cannot make claims against an estate;
- Practical strategies and tips relating to having a correct estate planning structure in place; and
- Insight into why people make such claims and how they can be minimised
