GUARDIANSHIP AND CONSERVATORSHIP
What will you do if you or a loved one becomes disabled? Do you have a plan of action in place?
Statistics show that you will likely need long-term health care at some point in your life. According to a 2009 estimate, more than 42 million Americans provide care to an adult with limitations in daily activities.
If you become mentally or physically disabled, such that you are unable to manage your own affairs, the probate court will appoint someone to take control of all your assets and personal affairs.
This process is called Living Probate and is often expensive, time-consuming, and humiliating.
Incapacity planning involves making decisions in advance of a physical or mental disability where you are unable to take care of yourself. In your plan, you state your wishes regarding how you will be cared for and you give somebody else, such as a spouse or adult child, the power to make financial and health care decisions on your behalf.
Depending on your particular situation, incapacity planning could include a number of techniques to spell out your decisions regarding everything from paying your bills to making critical medical decisions. This includes creating a Durable Power of Attorney for financial matters, Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and a Living Will.
Whether you are facing the possibility of a Living Probate or want to create a plan to avoid that from happening, we can help. Call us today or click here to request a consultation with one of our knowledgeable attorneys.

Problems can occur when people don’t correctly coordinate all of the aspects of passing on their estate.

With the right estate plan, you can rest assured that your family won’t have to endure a public process and face high probate costs. The government will also not be able to take a large portion of what you’ve spent a lifetime building. But you need to be aware of the many options that exist in estate planning – and you must choose your estate planning attorney wisely.
