An estate plan provides peace of mind and protection for your loved ones. Just as no life care plan is the same, no estate plan is the same. We work with clients at every stage of life–from new parents to great-grandparents–and at every income level, to ensure that their wishes are followed during and after their lifetimes. Every document we prepare includes an in-person consultation with an attorney to ensure that our clients’ unique needs are met.
Estate plans at Elder Law Solutions may include preparation of the following:
Last Will and Testament to name your Executor and instruct him or her on how to satisfy your debts and last expenses and then distribute your property after you pass away. If you have small children, a will allows you to decide who will care for your children if you are no longer here to do so yourself.
Trusts (including Living Trusts) to help avoid the cost and delay of probate and to help manage, control and distribute property during life and after death.
Durable General Power of Attorney to name your Attorney-in-Fact and empower him or her to manage your finances, pay your bills, and attend to other financial and property-related matters while you are living if you are unable to do those things yourself
Living Will Directive and Health Care Surrogate Designation to express your wishes regarding life-prolonging treatment and appoint another individual to make health care decisions for you if you no longer have decisional capacity.
