In order to help clients fully protect themselves and their family members, these estate plans include several types of legal documents. Below are descriptions of the types of estate planning tools that the firm can assist you with creating and managing.
Last Will and Testament
With a last will and testament, a person can document how his or her estate should be divided and distributed after his or her passing. It is essential to create a last will and testament unless you want your estate to be subject to probate and divided according to state laws.
Revocable Living Trust
Through a living trust, the person who established the trust can personally benefit from it during his or her lifetime while also securing assets that loved ones can benefit from in the future.
Power of Attorney for Financial Affairs
By setting up durable power of attorney, you can appoint someone to make legal decisions on your behalf, either immediately or when a debilitating event occurs in your life. This arrangement can be important if you have finances and investments to manage and wanted a trusted family member to take over the responsibility.
Creating a guardianship plan will legally establish who should have custody of any minor children who are left behind upon your passing. Oftentimes, guardianship instructions are incorporated into a will, but guardianship also can be established in a separate document.
California Advance Health Care Directive
A California advance health care directive allows you to make decisions about the healthcare you receive when you are incapacitated. For example, this directive allows you to choose a primary physician in advance and determine what type of end-of-life medical care you want. This document also gives you the ability to designate someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf.
Importance of Planning Ahead
Because there is no way of telling what will happen in the future, it is best to go through life being prepared. If you would like to be proactive and take steps that can help protect you and your loved ones down the road, it is in your best interests to consult an attorney as soon as possible.
