Securing Your Family’s Future: Estate Planning Insights
Estate planning isn’t just for retirees – it’s a crucial step at any stage of life to safeguard your family’s future. At Boehmer Law, our attorneys understand the sensitivity of this subject and offer comprehensive guidance for your estate planning needs.
Understanding Estate Planning
Your estate encompasses everything you possess, from financial assets like retirement and bank accounts to properties and investments. An estate planning lawyer assists in distributing these assets among your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are clearly conveyed and executed upon your passing.
Wills And Trusts
Delving into estate planning often involves consideration of wills and trusts. A trust, a vital component of your estate, simplifies the transfer of assets to your family members without undergoing probate, providing them access to your will’s items without delays or freezes.
Power Of Attorney
Designating a power of attorney and drafting a living will are integral parts of estate planning. Our attorneys at Boehmer Law handle these sensitive topics with care and skill, ensuring your wishes are respected and legally binding.
Advance Healthcare Directives
Advance healthcare directives, often comprising a living will and healthcare power of attorney, play a pivotal role in estate planning. A living will specifies your preferences for medical care in unforeseen circumstances, guiding healthcare professionals when you cannot communicate your wishes. It outlines treatments you do or do not wish to receive, ensuring your values and desires guide medical decisions.
Additionally, a healthcare power of attorney designates a trusted individual to make medical decisions on your behalf if you’re incapacitated. This person advocates for your preferences, ensuring that your healthcare aligns with your wishes and values.
Crafting these directives empowers you to control your medical care in situations where you cannot express your desires. Our attorneys understand the importance of these documents and will work with you to ensure they accurately reflect your wishes and are legally sound.
