Kalamazoo Powers of Attorney
Comprehensive estate planning is about more than making sure your wishes for your assets are clearly laid out. In the event that you are incapacitated or otherwise unable to make decisions about your health and/or finances, it is important to have a plan in place to ensure someone you trust has the power to make those decisions.
Powers of attorney are quickly becoming a must-have document in any estate plan. But, as with any estate planning document, a poorly drafted power of attorney has little value. At Willis Law, you can rely on our experienced estate planning lawyers to make sure your power of attorney documents are tailored to your unique circumstances and goals.
Why Powers of Attorney?
Not only do powers of attorney create a plan for allowing someone to act on your behalf when incapacitated, they also help individuals and families avoid probate court and the appointment of a guardian or conservator, which can be a very complex process.
Health Care Powers of Attorney
Health care powers of attorney allow you to designate an individual you trust to make decisions about your health care, including your preferences on how to handle end-of-life issues. If you already have a living will in order to make your wishes clear, it is important to still have a health care power of attorney in place to make sure someone you trust has the authority to carry out your wishes and make those treatment decisions on your behalf.
Durable Power of Attorney
This document will allow you to designate someone as your financial power of attorney. This will facilitate the management of your financial affairs by someone you trust while you are incapacitated.
