Estate planning is one of the best gifts you can leave your family when you die, yet most people put off making a will. At Bean, Smith & Burnett, Attorneys at Law, we are sensitive to your need for privacy about your financial affairs and assets, while getting enough information from you to be able to give you legal advice on making your will specific to your situation. In a will you name an executor who will be in charge of distributing your assets according to the bequests in your will.
There are two other documents that are important to have, in addition to a will, that deal with handling your finances and health care when you are not able to take care of them yourself. A situation can happen at any age, by an accident or a medical problem that leaves you unable to make financial and health care decisions for yourself.
A durable power of attorney allows you to name an attorney-in-fact who will act on your behalf in financial matters when you are unable to make those decisions yourself. An advance care plan allows you to let your doctor and family know your wishes regarding life-ending medical conditions. It also allows you to let your doctor and family know your wishes regarding life support, feeding tubes and organ donation when you are suffering from an end-stage medical condition.
