Is A Will Enough?
When many people think of estate planning, they probably think of a will. While virtually everyone should have a will and it is an important part of an estate plan, there are other, equally important, elements.
Advance directives, powers of attorney and living wills are all essential to a comprehensive plan. Our attorneys at Strother & Strother, PLLC, can explain how each of these legal instruments functions and how they can help to complete your estate plan.
What About Incapacity?
When most people are healthy, they give little thought to what would happen if they suffered some calamity that left them incapacitated. While estate planning issues are sometimes thought of as concerns of the elderly, incapacity is something that could happen to any of us at any time.
Advance directives and powers of attorney can help prevent that moment of crisis from causing an additional crisis for your family of not know what to do or having the legal authority to do it. They provide clear direction and grant legal authority to your spouse or another family member to spend money or pay your bills.
Our lawyers have worked with many clients on estate planning matters, including:
- Advanced Directives
- Living Wills
- Power of Attorney
We take the time to explain what each document does and then draft the appropriate materials for your specific circumstances. A comprehensive set of these documents is a great gift to your family, as it ensures they have one less worry. They are a way to reduce the stress on everyone involved and ensure your wishes are carried out.
