Estate Planning
Estate Planning

Estate planning involves more than simply drafting a will or establishing a living trust. Sometimes events happen while you are still alive that render you no longer able to make decisions about your finances, assets or healthcare. An important component of effective estate planning is to address those possibilities by having a Durable Financial Power of Attorney and an Advanced Healthcare Directive (also known as a Living Will). Creating these documents can help protect your estate and health care decisions from misinterpretation.

If you fear that your family may misconstrue your desires concerning your health care, it is important to draft a living will and appoint someone as your power of attorney.

  • Durable Financial Power of Attorney: In this document you name a person you trust to make financial decisions in the event you no longer are able to do so

  • Advanced Healthcare Directive (Living Will): This document describes your instructions about health care and disposition of your body once you die or become incapacitated.
