Planning your estate to ensure your loved ones are provided for as you desire is an important but sometimes daunting process. It is something that many would like to ignore but is of the utmost importance to address sooner rather than later. If you have children it becomes even more important to have an estate plan drafted as soon as possible in order to address guardianship and trust issues that will arise. My job is to help you think about what is most important for you and your family. Whether it be to provide for your spouse/partner, children, charity or family pet, together we can craft a plan that fits your specific desires.
Additional considerations in estate planning include what to do in the event you suffer a catastrophic injury/illness that renders you unable to make decisions. These can be addressed by executing Power of Attorney Forms for Health Care and Property. Having these forms executed relieves a huge burden from loved ones in very trying times and ensures that your health care directives are carried out.
