Estate Planning

Last Will and Testament: Some are under the misconception that they just do not need a Will or any sort of Estate Planning. This thinking is just wrong. If you’d like to have some say where your assets will end up, you need a Will. If you have minor children, you definitely need a Will. If you like to leave some items to one person and away from another, it’s your choice. Wills can be fairly simple, inexpensive and hassle-free. Virtually all of my clients feel more at peace when they’ve finally taken care of this “last wish”.

Even if you’re still not sold on having a Will drafted for yourself, there are two important documents that are very relevant to your well-being because they come into play while you’re still alive. Those documents are a Durable Power of Attorney and a Health Care Surrogate.

Power of Attorney: If you’re alive but unable to take care of your financial affairs, you can nominate someone to do this for you. So, while one is sick, his or her power of attorney is able to pay the monthly bills, deposit checks and maybe even sell the home if there is a medical financial need. This form avoids the need for someone to be appointed as your guardian.

Health Care Surrogate: If you’re alive but unable to take care of yourself, you’re nominating someone you trust to make those medical directives for you. This is usually a spouse, a relative or a close friend. This form encompasses decisions about where you should be: In a hospital? At home with Hospice? It also can include end of life decisions, commonly called a “Living Will”. Your nominee will ultimately make decisions if someone is persistently vegetative (a coma situation) or terminal with days to live.

We can help with all of the above and we offer a free consultation. If you need us, we’re here!
