Powers of Attorney
For some families, the
most important part of the estate plan won’t involve the eventual transfer of
assets through wills or trusts. Instead, the focus will fall on powers of
attorney, living wills and health care directives. Careful planning for periods
of disability, legal incapacity or extreme end-of-life medical conditions can
spare your family hard and painful decisions in the future.
The death of a loved one
often brings emotional distress to a family. In addition to dealing with the
loss, disagreements over the estate can strain even the most loving of family
relationships. We can assist your family in navigating through the difficult
probate and estate administration process.
When a person dies, his or her estate must be
gathered and distributed. Often, the deceased names a person in his or her will
as the administrator, executor or personal representative. This person becomes
responsible for making sure the estate is administered properly, including:
Preparing all required documents for filing with
the probate office, Paying outstanding debts and taxes, distributing the
remaining assets, Filing tax reports and legal documents.
