    Last Will & Testament

    Hi all Morbid thoughts abound. I'm currently looking into having a last will and testament drawn up here in Canada. I was wondering if anybody could share an experience or give some advice. I asked around and was quoted $350 a piece for an uncomplicated one if I go through a lawyer. Price seems a bit high but this was the lowest I could find at the moment. I also found Axess Law, which are a cheaper option at about $99. But these are like walk-in lawyers. And another cheap option are these online will kits. Although I feel they're a bit dodge. "What if something goes wrong" comes to mind a lot with these kinds of thing. Personally I would like to go for the face-to-face lawyer route. Is $350 reasonable for one will? (That will then be $700 for both hubby and I). If not, can anybody recommend lawyers in the GTA area who charge reasonable rates perhaps? Another issue seems to be if you have international assets, etc. That seems to be covered in some other way.

    Applying for Express Entry

    Hi everyone 😊 My husband and I are in the process of applying for EE. We have 443 points would it be advisable to both submit profiles and see who gets chosen first. I was not aware I needed to send my degree to Wes as well so I will be doing that soon. My husbands report should be ready on the 20 August and we are writing out ielts on the 18th. Should I get our work references ready in the mean time? This whole processes is a bit overwhelming and any advice would be appreciated. ❤️
  3. Hi All, I am in the process of getting divorced, I would like to revert back to my maiden surname. My application was done in my married name, I would like to send a case specific email stating that I would like to revert back to my maiden surname. I do not have a clue where to start. How do I go about this? Do I get hold of the South African Consulate to change my passport etc? Any help will be very helpful. Thank you!
  4. Hi there I'm planning on leaving for Canada for a pretty permanent stretch. I'm planning to leave in Early-Middle December (depending on the cheapest flight I can find). I've found out so many useful things in this forums. Since you guys can be pretty helpful, I'm hoping you can give me some advice with the following questions: I'm already a Permanent Resident (PR), does this mean I can fly at a cheaper rate? (Someone told me about this and I just want to confirm if it's true or not.) Which airline is the best? (My best experience - when traveling towards Canada - was with Air France, but I'm not sure if some airlines are sympathetic to those who have PR status and those who don't.) Which is cheaper...Early December or Middle December? Is there one place that can compare prices for you? (It can be overwhelming consulting all the different airline websites.) Any tips to help with the jetlag? (Last time I was in Toronto I suffered for 2-3 days from it.) What is the one thing you should have packed for the airplane but didn't? Any advice or things to watch out for when traveling alone? (I'm most likely going to be travelling alone, and meeting my brother in Toronto.) Which is the ideal Winter month to travel in? Is there anyway to get a free ticket? (My mother always told me the best things in life are hellishly expensive. However, I could never say no to something I could get without opening my wallet.)If you guys could be kind enough to answer even one question, I'd be grateful! Jonathan
