At Linka Howe Peterson, we have the knowledge and experience to guide our clients through the process of planning their estate. We encourage our clients to consider the following elements:
- Who do you wish to act as the Executor and Trustee of the estate?
- If your first choice of Executor and Trustee is unable or unwilling to act, who would you wish to act in their stead?
- Who would you wish to be the guardian(s) of your underage children in the event your spouse/partner or the children’s non-custodial parent passes before you?
- Are there specific items that you wish to give to specific beneficiaries?
Other instruments to consider are Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives.
A Power of Attorney grants named individuals the authority to manage your affairs in the event you become incapacitated by illness or injury. A personal and/or a property attorney can be appointed. A personal attorney can make decisions on your behalf. A property attorney can manage your property.
A Health Care Directive allows you to direct who may make health care decisions on your behalf in the event of a severe injury or illness and what measures may be taken to prolong your life.
