Estate Planning

father-and-daughter_sepiaWill: It is always wise to have an estate plan in place to ensure that your wishes upon your death are met.  If you want to control how your assets are distributed upon your death and who should receive your estate, it is essential that you have a valid will. If you do not have a will intestate laws will dictate how your estate is distributed.

Power of Attorney: It is also crucial that you have a Power of Attorney in place so that your financial and medical affairs may be handled by a trusted person you choose in the event you are unable to do so.

Living Will: Executing a Living Will also ensures that your wishes regarding your medical care are followed in the event you are unable to express your desires at a later date.

Having a Power of Attorney and Living Will in place could avoid the need for guardianship litigation to ensue.
