Have you just gotten married? Had a child? Bought a home or started a business? Then you should have a Last Will and Testament.
When you enter into any relationship in which others are depending on you for all or some of their livelihood, you should also protect them in the event of your death by executing a Last Will and Testament. Also known as a simple or living will. If you die without a will, the state’s laws regarding distribution of assets will determine who your beneficiaries are. Items that you might have intended to go to specific individuals will instead go to those identified by the court. We can help ensure that doesn’t happen.
Contact an estate planning lawyer today – you are never too young or too old to execute a Last Will and Testament.
Health Care Agent
If you became ill or were injured and critical healthcare decisions needed to be made while you were unable to make them yourself, who would you want to speak on your behalf? Appointing a Health Care Agent and documenting your wishes in a Living Will can help ensure that your wishes are carried out, even when you can’t speak for yourself. A Living Will can also reduce the burden on your loved ones by letting them know what you expect from them.
We can help you understand your options regarding Health Care Agents, Living Wills, Power of Attorney and other critical legal tools that protect your rights and interests when you are incapacitated. Contact an estate planning attorney today.
