Crafting An Estate Plan That Is Right For You

When it comes to estate planning documents, usually the first and only thing that comes to most people’s minds is a will. While a will is certainly a fundamental component of any estate plan, there are other documents that should be considered in order to provide you with a comprehensive estate plan that will ensure your wishes are honored.

At Blackacre Law LLC, our attorneys can help identify your goals and provide you with the estate planning documents that are best suited to your needs.

Wills And More

Our lawyers help with the creation of a wide range of estate planning documents, including:

Wills: A will states how your assets are to be distributed upon your death. The existence of a will makes the administration of your estate significantly easier and provides you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your assets will be divided how you see fit.

Power of attorney: A power of attorney enables you to name a trusted representative you can make financial decisions on your behalf should you ever be unable to make decisions on your own. For example, a serious accident may result in your being temporarily or permanently incapacitated, or if a cognitive decline renders you unable to make sound financial decisions by yourself.

Health care power of attorney: Similar to a power of attorney, this document enables you to name a trusted representative who can make health care decisions on your behalf should you ever find yourself in a situation where you are unable to do so.

Living will: Also known as an advance health care directive, this document states your preferences for how end-of-life care choices are to be handled. For example, whether you want to be kept alive through a feeding tube or otherwise have your life functions maintained by artificial support.

Having the above documents can help ensure a comprehensive estate plan that is designed to cover most situations. When you meet with us, we will tailor a plan that is designed to best suit your needs.
