Plan for Your Family
If you are interested in providing for your loved ones, a comprehensive estate plan can select beneficiaries and distribute property according to your wishes. Additionally, a will can name a personal representative (executor) to carry out your last wishes and a guardian to care for minor children or disabled heirs. You can also help your family avoid the probate process by placing all of your assets in a living trust, which will be overseen by your hand-picked a trustee without any court involvement or court appointments necessary. With more than 20 years of experience, the Crown Point estate planning attorney at Kent A. Jeffirs, Attorney at Law, PC is well-equipped to assist you in selecting the estate planning tools that are best for you.
Prepare for Your Own Future
Estate planning isn’t entirely about planning for your estate and loved ones; it is about planning for yourself as well. Should you become incapable of making or expressing decisions, powers of attorney and advance health care directives can allow your loved ones to make those decisions for you without a court-appointed guardian and provide health care professionals with information about the types of care and life-prolonging treatments you would like to receive or withhold. A comprehensive estate plan will include a will or a trust, a power of attorney for financial and legal matters, a health care power of attorney and a living will to ensure that you receive the care that best meets your requests, and Kent A. Jeffirs, Attorney at Law, PC, can counsel you and draft those legal documents that will best meet your needs.
