Wills & Revocable Trusts
A Will is a written document that states an individual’s wishes as to how assets should be disposed of upon their death. Without this important document in place, you have no control over how your assets will be divided as they will be divided according to your state’s laws.
Some benefits of having a Will include:
A Living Trust is a planning method that offers benefits for all individuals, especially those who are older or who have substantial assets. This document is used to avoid probate and protect the trust owner and beneficiaries.
Some benefits of having a Revocable Living Trust include:
Relevant lawyers take a client-centered approach in everything we do. It's our DNA. Our lawyers have a forward- thinking mindset in navigating the complexities of divorce and family law, as well as the social and economic circumstances that are often related to family law matters.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney (POA) is a document that gives another person the authority to act on your behalf regarding financial, medical, and personal business matters. In the event you are unable to make these decisions yourself, a Power of Attorney of your choosing will act on your behalf to carry out your specified wishes.
Some benefits of having a Power of Attorney include:
Powers of Attorney can include General, Limited, Durable, and Springing.
Advanced Healthcare Directive
An Advance Healthcare Directive, also known as a Living Will, enables you to do two things:
First, it allows you to choose someone you trust who will have authority to make healthcare decisions for you in case you are incapacitated.
Second, it allows you to explain how you want certain medical care or procedures to be handled. This document helps loved ones, and medical personnel make important decisions during a crisis, even when you're unable to make your wishes known yourself.
