No two people are alike; therefore, everyone’s estate planning needs are different so a personally designed and carefully crafted Estate Plan is essential to preparing for your future and protecting your assets in the event of illness or death.
The most common aspects of an Estate Plan are:
Simple Will: the most basic form of estate planning which outlines what happens to your property and assets after your death.
Power of Attorney: In the event of injury or incapacitation, this document allows someone you designate to manage the affairs of your life. A Power of Attorney can be temporary or permanent.
Living Will: If you suffer from an illness or injury that prevents you from communicating or making decisions, this document informs your medical providers and family about what types of medical care you want to receive, and more importantly, what types of medical care you do not want to receive.
Health Care Proxy: This document gives you the right to choose who you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you are ever disabled and unable to communicate your wishes.
