Fast Solutions For Estate Planning Emergencies
You want to have an effective estate plan. This means you need to have one that answers any and all questions that your family or other parties may have about your wishes. In order to do this, an estate plan has to consist of more than just a will or a trust. There are other provisions that must be made in case you become incapacitated. One of the most difficult decisions for a family to make is what to do if you are determined to be in a vegetative state. If they do not know what your wishes are, then they do not know if the decision they make is the right one. If you specify what you want beforehand through a health care directive, then they know what you want.
We will sit down with you and carefully discuss the different strategies that can be used to help you accomplish your goals. Once you determine what you want your approach to be, we will prepare all documents and execute them so that your emergency plan is in place.
Effective Planning For You And Your Family
There are several elements that you may wish to have your Minnesota estate planning attorney include in your emergency planning. They include:
- A living will
- A durable power of attorney
- Healthcare directives
- Appointment of a guardian for minor children
All of these documents can make sure that everything is taken care of according to your wishes. This brings you peace of mind in case the unexpected would occur.
