There are lots of great times to make a Will or to update your existing Will – when you’ve just gotten married, had kids or bought a house. We can customize all of our Estate documents to your exact specifications!
A Will sets out how all your property will be distributed, to whom, and at what time after you die. It can also appoint guardians for any minor children you have. A Will can provide great peace of mind that your affairs are settled and your loved ones are looked after.
A codicil is used when you want to make a small change to your Will without redoing the entire Will. This can be making a small change like changing an executor, beneficiary, description of property, or it can be used to add or delete a clause from your existing Will.
A Personal Directive is also known as a “living will”. This document appoints a Personal Representative to make medical decisions in accordance with your wishes if you become incapacitated. This document gives you the power to decide on which treatments you do or do not wish to receive when you lack the ability to speak for yourself.
Power of Attorney (Enduring/Springing)
A Power of Attorney appoints a Personal Representative to deal with your finances, property and business interests if you become incapable of making your own decisions.
Power of Attorney (Land)
This is a specific Power of Attorney that grants your Personal Representative authority to deal with a specific piece of property on your behalf.
