We are experienced at setting up wills including:
- Living Will
- Health Care Power of Attorney
- Financial Power of Attorney
- Personal Property Memorandum
So many people with whom I speak nowadays seem to think they need to own property (lots of it) and have plenty of money before they are eligible to have a Will... this could not be farther from the truth.
The harsh realitiy of the matter is that a Will is more than leaving your "stuff" to someone upon your death.
It is about making decisions about who you trust to handle your finances if you should become incapacitated.
It is about making decisions about who you trust to make medical decisions for you if you are in a coma, as well as who makes those tough calls with the doctors concerning life support.
If you have children under the age of 18 it is about appointing a guardian and conservator for them.
This and much more is what goes into a Will!
