Will Preparation: Preparing a will can cost just a few hundred dollars and serves as a critically important document in your estate. A will performs several critical functions. It outlines how your assets will be distributed at the time of your death, in it, you can can appoint a specific person who can carry out your wishes, and it can nominate guardians for any minor children. Taking the time to draw up a will can be a gift to your family in that it articulates your wishes in a clear way. Finally, it can even make the probate process easier.
Health Care Directives: You may have strong feelings about how you would want your health care handled, should something happen to you and you were left incapacitated. A health care directive provides guidelines to your health care providers about what type of life saving measures you want taken/not taken and can appoint a person of your choosing to make your health care decisions if you are unable to.
Power of Attorney: Appointing a power of attorney gives that person legal to take action on your behalf. This person can make both financial and legal decisions on your behalf and is recommended for all adults in the event of an unexpected illness or accident.
