Creating Peace Of Mind
In estate planning, we work with clients to keep future planning simple and understandable.
1. The Will
Everyone needs a clear, current will. They’re not expensive, and they are the best gift you could possibly give to your loved ones after you are gone. With a will designating who gets what, your estate will be manageable and dispute-free. Without a will, Pennsylvania imposes laws to distribute your assets in a one-size-fits-all manner.
2. Powers Of Attorney
This is a simple and inexpensive document that empowers a designee to make financial and medical decisions when you are unable to do so.
These documents are especially important if you become incompetent. If you do not have these documents, your family may have to file a suit against you claiming that you are incapacitated. Talk to us about powers of attorney.
3. Advance Health Care Directives
This document states what kind of medical care you would want to receive if you are too ill to communicate your own wishes. This document lets you indicate how you want providers to intervene as you near death. By establishing your wishes, you remove the burden of your loved ones having to guess what you would choose in those circumstances.
Considering Long-Term Care
Our elder law practice at Wolfe, Rice & Quinn, LLC, includes topics such as long-term care and issues related to possible future long-term nursing home care. We work with seniors and with their adult children to prepare a legal pathway for them to follow as they get older, in order to minimize financial exposure as their life circumstances change.
Our Gettysburg will attorneys use their legal experience to ensure that you derive the benefits from public and private institutions to which you are entitled.
