Yesterday, the first “Will Party” of 2018 was hosted in Hamilton. This is sort of like a tupperware party but instead as a lawyer I take instructions from each of the invitees to prepare their Wills and Powers of Attorney.
How it works is you invite a bunch of your friends who are in need of a New Will and Power of Attorney. I know this is something that everyone puts off but everyone needs. You provide the drinks and munchies and a private room for me to meet with everyone separately. I am able to take instructions from each of the party goers to prepare their Wills. We can then have a signing party or they can stop by my office to sign all of the documents.
Benefits of attending the party- Obviously, you get to spend time with your friends, they will be providing nibbles and drinks. You will be able to meet with a lawyer to take instructions from you in order to prepare a Will and Powers of Attorney. It is also convenient as you do not have to take time off from work to meet.
What does it cost? A simple Will and two powers of Attorney per person costs $500 plus tax. If you provide more complicated instructions the price will increase but we can talk about that when we meet.
What do you need to do? Get a host to book a party!!!
Show up at the party with two pieces of identification. I will need to take a picture of your ID. (I cannot take a health card) Driver’s license, passport, library card, credit card, bank card are all acceptable.
Once the party is booked, I will send a form to the host to distribute. You can work on the form the best that you can. This will give me a head start when we first meet, so I can be very efficient and will have time to meet everyone.
After our meeting, I will prepare the documents at my office. The draft documents will be e-mailed to you so that you can approve them. You can then arrange a follow up party to sign the documents or you can book an appointment at my office to sign the documents another day if that is more convenient for you.
