Wills, Powers of Attorney, Medical Directives & Probate

Planning your estate to provide for your loved ones when you're not around may seem the last thing you want to think about.  But doing it now will remove a burden on your loved ones later.  Having clear written instruments to carry out your wishes ensures that you, not the state, will decide how your estate will be distributed.  A will or a trust is especially necessary for anyone with minor or dependent children.  Also, designating a durable power of attorney ensures someone you trust has the authority to properly protect your assets and act on your behalf if you are incapable of doing so.  Finally, if you have specific wishes relating to your medical care it is important to have those in writing and provide it to your primary medical provider.
