Estate Plans Cover More Than Inheritance
Many people think of estate planning in terms of inheritance and distributing property. However, this is only part of the value of creating an estate plan. A plan can also act like an insurance policy. You can name someone to act as a power of attorney, in the event you become incapacitated and can no longer make medical or financial decisions on your own.
In fact, a valid power of attorney will preclude tens of thousands of dollars that would be spent to petition courts to make decisions for you. Again, the kindest thing you can do for your loved ones is to plan in advance for an emergency so they can tend to you in an incapacitated state.
Why Name A Power Of Attorney?
You probably never sit back and think that everything you take for granted could become out of reach. Unfortunately, the unexpected can happen. Our lawyer helps clients think beyond today and prepare for the possibility of a debilitating accident or illness. We are highly compassionate when helping clients work past emotional hurdles to establish a plan.
A power of attorney permits the person you name to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf without court involvement. This saves your family tremendous amounts of stress and time trying to discern what you would want.
You can also name someone under a limited power of attorney. This person would be responsible to make decisions for a limited amount of time, for example, to complete a real estate closing taking place during a surgical procedure.
