KFPL Live -- Estate Litigation 101: Will, Guardianship & Power of Attorney

Start Date:
End Date:
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Sydenham Branch Kingston Frontenac Public Library 4412 Wheatley St. Sydenham, ON

With today's aging demographic the estate litigation world is expanding. In spite of careful estate planning and the choosing of a Power of Attorney, sometimes disputes arise.  Perhaps someone wants to challenge a will, or feels that the person with power of attorney is using the funds for their own benefit.  Sometimes a newly incapable parent needs to be placed in long-term care but their children disagree about the choice of home. How can these issues be resolved?

At this installment of the KFPL Live monthly speakers' series, local lawyer Paul Andrews will discuss issues in estate litigation which are becoming increasingly important as our population ages.  Mr. Andrews will cover the procedural steps in disputing Powers of Attorney, applying for guardianship, or making will challenges, and he will review the grounds on which those strategies can be pursued.  This talk will be of particular interest to everyone with an estate plan, children who are managing their parents’ affairs, families coping with dementia, and anyone who is expecting to be a beneficiary under a will.

This presentation will take place twice:  first at the Central branch on Thursday, October 10 at 7 p.m. and then at the Sydenham branch on Saturday, October 26 at 2 p.m.  Both sessions will be the same and both are open to adults and seniors. There is no admission charge, but seating is limited.  To avoid disappointment, please register in advance at or by phone at (613) 549-8888 as of 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 28.
