Health Care Directive
A Health Care Directive (sometimes referred to as a “Living Will”) is a document that provides legal instructions regarding your preferences for medical care if you are unable to make decisions for yourself. A Health Care Directive will guide your family to make the health care decisions you want if you become terminally ill, seriously injured, in a coma, in the late stages of dementia, or near the end of life. Planning ahead will allow you to receive the medical care you want and relieve your family of decision-making during a time of crisis and grief.
Power of Attorney
A durable power of attorney is an estate planning document that allows a person of your choosing to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated. Health Care Directives and Powers of Attorney are not just for the elderly—accidents can happen at any age, so it’s important to plan ahead.
A Will is a written document which states how you would like your assets distributed, who you wish to be the guardian of any minor children, and how your debts will be paid upon your death. Having a Will allows you to ensure your assets and debts are dealt with how you choose. If you die without a Will, the State will divide your assets and make these decisions for you, including who will be the guardian of your minor children. Give yourself peace of mind and let us guide you in creating a Will that meets all legal requirements.
