Her husband just died. She didn’t know what to do. She consulted Ms. Hodgson. Ms. Hodgson guided her through the estate administration process, including obtaining probate and transferring all of his assets into her name. Ms. Hodgson then ensured that she met with other professionals, including an accountant for her husband’s year of death tax return and trust returns and a financial advisor to ensure her future financial well-being. They were looking to move, with the expectation of a new family member. Together with Ms. Hodgson, they found their dream home. Ms. Hodgson negotiated the Offer to Purchase and “closed the deal” as their solicitor, ensuring title was in order. Following the move, they met again with Ms. Hodgson to plan in case of a family disaster. Ms. Hodgson took instructions for Wills and Powers of Attorney and set up a Minor’s Trust and a Life Insurance Trust, ensuring their planning was in order.
