ESTATE PLANNING

What is an estate plan?

An estate plan is a collection of documents, each serving an important and different purpose.  They are designed to communicate your wishes regarding your assets, healthcare, whom you wish to administer your estate, and whom you wish to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitiated.

 

Estate Planning Documents include:

  • Power of Attorney - This document allows you to name someone to manage your property and financial and legal affairs in the event of an incapacity.  It is also used to name someone to make healthcare decisions if you are unable to do so.

  • Advanced Care Directive (Living Will) - This document is a directive from you to your physician indicating your wishes regarding treatment in certain limited medical situations.

  • Last Will & Testament - This document tells the courts how you want your property distributed after your death. It also allows you to name a guardian for minor children and pets and provide instructions for your funeral.

  • Trust - This document describes how property will be managed by someone for the benefit of you or a third party.
