Creating a Will
A will appoints guardians for your children, dictates how your property and assets will be distributed after your death, and states your final wishes for your body. Creating a will now will protect your family from legal battles and disputes and ensure your children are taken care if you die unexpectedly.
We can help you determine beneficiaries and appoint an executor so you can be sure your wishes will be met.
According to your will, the executor will take charge of distributing your assets to your loved ones after your passing. If you are the executor of a will, we can give you legal advice to guide you through probate court and assist you in properly transferring the deceased's estate to their beneficiaries.
Power of Attorney
If you come to a point where you are unable to make important decisions, a power of attorney can make those decisions and act on your behalf.
In regards to health care, a power of attorney consists of your written wishes regarding your end-of-life care should you become incapacitated.
With our knowledge, we can guide you through the necessary paperwork to designate a power of attorney, making sure to observe the related laws and regulations. With a power of attorney, you can trust your wishes will be honored.
