- Will Preparation: Preparing a will gives you the ability to communicate how you would like your assets distributed at the time of your death. A will can also make the probate process easier, if you specify that the probate happen informally. A will also lets the courts know who you would like to name as the guardian of your children.
- Health Care Directive: A health care directive communicates to health care providers what kinds of procedures you do not want used to save you, if you are unable to communicate. You can also use a health care directive to name a personal representative to make these decisions for you, should you be unable to do so.
- Power of Attorney: Designating a power of attorney gives someone you trust legal authority over the decisions you would make (including financial decisions). A power of attorney most often makes sense as a person gets older, but can be very important if you get sick or incapacitated at any age. Without a power of attorney, your family will have to go through the courts and request that a guardian be named.
