Will Drafting Services

The COVID-19 pandemic has many people concerned about whether they have all of their affairs in order. During uncertain times like these, having a valid will in place is one of the most important things you can do to protect your legacy and the future of your loved ones. Your will states how you would like your assets to be distributed to your heirs and other beneficiaries.

A comprehensive will should include the following:

  • A personal representative or executor of your estate
  • The names of the beneficiaries you want to inherit your property
  • The names of any alternate beneficiaries
  • Specific directions regarding how your personal assets should be divided
  • Detailed directions for how debts, expenses, and taxes should be paid
  • Other special instructions for maintaining real estate properties

Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney grants a person of your choosing the authority to manage your personal and business affairs in situations where you are unable to do so yourself.

Under a power of attorney, the person you choose to handle your affairs can perform the following tasks on your behalf:

  • Access your bank accounts
  • Pay your bills
  • Purchase and sell real estate
  • Handle stocks and bonds
  • File income tax returns
  • Manage your personal business interests
  • Make important estate planning decisions

Advance Directives

A health care proxy, also called an advance health care directive or a living will, details your exact wishes regarding important health care decisions and medical treatments you want or don’t want if you are incapacitated and can’t speak for yourself.

Your advance directives should include the following:

  • Health Care Agent: You will need to name a person you trust to make medical decisions for you in case you are ever seriously injured or become terminally ill.
  • Authority of Agent: This legal document gives the agent the power to make health care decisions that align with the specific instructions you have left for them.
  • Health Care Directions: These are the specific directions you want your agent to enact under emergency circumstances. These directions need to be clear and specific and must cover all of your preferences for several different health care scenarios.
