Nearly everyone over the age of 18 needs to have in place at least four basic estate planning documents:
- Medical Power of Attorney
- Financial Power of Attorney
- Living Will
It is best to have an experienced, licensed lawyer who is familiar with the laws of the state in which you live, review your situation with you, answer your questions, and provide a custom drafted estate plan for you. Additionally, by using an attorney you trust, if you should have any changes to your estate plan in the future, the attorney can do so quickly and easily without having to redraft all of your estate planning documents. The benefit of having an estate plan is that it allows you to:
- Plan for your and your family’s future;
- Make your wishes known regarding how you want your assets distributed;
- Make your wishes known regarding end-of-life circumstances;
- Direct who you want to manage your medical affairs should you become incapacitated;
- Direct who you want to manage your financial affairs should you become incapacitated;
- Direct who you want to be appointed as your guardian and/or conservators should one be necessary;
- Direct who you want to care for your minor children if something should happen to you and/or your spouse;
- Direct who you want to manage your assets on behalf of your minor children should something happen to you and/or your spouse; and
- Direct how you wish for your last remains to be disposed of (ie. where do you want to be buried, what type of ceremony do you want).
