  3. 3. In some cases, a person will leave it up to the executor to determine a suitable charity. In other cases, a person may wish to leave something to a specific charity. In those cases, it is a good idea to describe the charity unambiguously by using the legal name of the charity. This can be confusing and sometimes requires some research, since some large charitable organizations have several legal charitable entities associated with them. An example of this would be an organization like the SPCA or the United Way. Answer 1 http://www.CalgaryLegal Wills.com/

  5. 5. That used to be the case in Alberta, but is no longer the case in this province. However, in other jurisdictions, getting married may have the effect of nullifying a pre- existing will. To be on the safe side, you may consider making a will “in contemplation of marriage” to a particular person. Answer 2 http://www.CalgaryLegal Wills.com/

  7. 7. In Alberta, a divorce may have the effect of rescinding a gift made by will to a former spouse. To be on the safe side, upon divorce or separation you should consider changing your will to exclude your former or estranged spouse or to explicitly include that person notwithstanding the breakdown of the marriage.
