When people hear “estate planning,” many automatically think of the elderly. In truth, it’s never too early to establish a plan to protect your family, wealth, and legacy, should the unthinkable occur. This means having the crucial legal documents in place that convey your intentions for your finances, property, children, and healthcare.
Wills & Trusts
The two most important documents you can create to protect your family’s interests are a will and a trust. The two can be used separately or in combination with one another to help ensure your children are cared for and your wealth, property, and assets are allocated properly when you are gone.
There are a few key differences between a will and a trust. The Jaeger Firm’s experienced estate planning attorneys can help you understand these differences and establish the best plan for your individual situation. You worked hard for what you have, and together, we can make sure it all goes to the right place when you’re no longer with us.
Durable Power of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney (POA) is another important document that ensures you have control over what happens in your life. In the unfortunate event you are no longer able to make your own decisions, a POA names a person you trust to handle your affairs for you, namely decisions regarding your bills, finances, insurance, and investments. Our expert estate planning attorneys can help you with this crucial decision, ensuring you and your estate are always in good hands.
Living Will & Health Care Surrogate
The last essential set of documents every adult should have executed is a Living Will and Appointment of Health Care Surrogate. These documents establish a trusted individual to make decisions for your health care if you are unable to speak for yourself. They also illustrate your wishes regarding life support and organ donation. You deserve to have a say about these critical life decisions, and the Jaeger Firm can make sure you do.
