If you become incapacitated, you won't be able to manage your own financial affairs. Without proper planning in place the court is liable to intervene and appoint someone on your behalf (i.e., conservatorship and/or guardianship). This process can be time consuming, expensive, and stressful.
Proper incapacity planning operates to prevent court intervention. It enables you to hand-pick trusted individuals, and empower them to act on your behalf. Moreover, it binds your appointed individuals to follow a specific set of instructions designed to meet your stated goals and objectives.
We assist clients in preparing the right documents that enable them to retain a lifetime control without court intervention. Through the use of trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives, our clients are able to:
- Maintain control over financial, legal and property matters;
- Maintain control over personal health care and medical matters; and
- Control the care and nurturing of minor children and other dependents.
