Can Your Legal Representative Change Your Funeral Arrangements After Your Death?

Can Your Legal Representative Change Your Funeral Arrangements After Your Death?


If you’ve gone through funeral pre-planning in Ottawa, you may be worried that your legal representative will make changes to your plan. A legal representative is an important person in your funeral plans. We encourage you to choose someone who will respect your wishes, but keep in mind that you need someone who can deal with any problems in your plan and amend it suitably after your death.  

If you have pre-planned and prepaid for your funeral, you may be wondering why any changes would need to be made. But as we’ve seen over the past few years, things are always changing. The COVID-19 pandemic, for example, threw everyone’s life plans into a spin. Individuals and families were required to adapt, modify, and even completely change plans with regard to many aspects of life, including funeral arrangements. If there are any issues with your pre-arranged funeral plan, your legal representative may need to step in to adjust your plan a little. You may have forgotten to include something in your plan. Your family may have ideas about your funeral that need to be dealt with. Your legal representative has the authority to make decisions and coordinate with the funeral home in Ottawa.
