Yes, you can legally use a "do it yourself" will kit to create a will in Alberta. Unfortunately, a will can be declared invalid if it contains ambiguous terms, unclear wording or inconsistent provisions. Many people execute wills that contain red flags because they don't have a lawyer to point out their mistakes.
Hiring an experienced wills and estates lawyer who can make a will for you can safeguard against having an intestate estate. It provides solid estate management, which helps ensure that your assets, children and pets are taken care of the way that you want after you've passed away.
