Your estate plan is a personalized tool that lets your loved ones know exactly what you want them to have when you’re gone. While it is important to spell out who is going to get what, there are many other considerations that come with an estate plan.
For this reason, you need to make sure that you are setting things up in a manner that makes all of your wishes known. We understand that writing out an estate plan might not be at the top of the list of fun things to do. We can help you to get everything all planned out and conveyed in a legally valid manner that your loved ones can understand.
It is sometimes easier to work backwards when you are coming up with your estate plan. Get everything set up in your will so that there is a plan for your assets. While you are writing out the will, you might realize that some assets are better suited for a trust. We can help you to get the will written and trusts established.
Once you have those steps done, you continue to go backwards with your thinking. Your final days are the next consideration. You have to think about what type of medical care you are willing to have. This might include the need to be placed on life support or to receive intravenous nutrition.
We can also help you to plan for someone to make financial and medical decisions for you if you can’t make them for yourself. Creating a medical power of attorney can help ensure the right people make your medical decisions. This can have a big impact on your life when you need help the most.
