Contact us at 1 833 987-3722 so we can answer your questions and provide you with access to the questionnaire.
You will be asked to complete the online questionnaire about your needs and wishes in preparation for the virtual interview with the legal officer, either the notary or the lawyer.
You will then have a virtual interview with a notary/lawyer to validate your needs and answer your legal questions.
The notary/lawyer will prepare the will and the mandate of protection in anticipation of your incapacity, which could include, if you wish, a general power of attorney.
Finally, you will have a second meeting with the notary/lawyer by videoconference so that he/she can read and explain the documents produced with you. If everything is in order, you will be able to sign electronically in his presence.
In Quebec, the notary will then register the technological acts in the Register of testamentary dispositions and Register of Protection mandate of the Chambre des notaires du Québec. Outside Quebec, the official documents will be kept in the lawyer's office in accordance with the applicable regulations.
