During the 2022 holiday season, we created the “12 Days of Planning“ series. For 12 consecutive days, we shared digestible content to introduce you to the most common planning concepts. The information was connected to an estate planning promotion. Though the promotion is complete, the information remains valuable. Click to watch.
This document provides end-of-life instructions. Whereby the Healthcare Proxy allows one to make medical decisions for another who is temporarily incapacitated, the Living Will provides instructions for what to do when someone is deemed permanently incapacitated, or incapacitated without a reasonable chance of recovery.
Grants a person the authority to act on another’s behalf; specifically, sign contracts or forms, engage in business transactions, and have access to financial accounts.
A Trust is similar to a Will in that it is a legal document that provides a set of instructions with respect to who is to care for minor children, how assets (or money) and charitable gifts are to be distributed.
In its simplest form, a Will is a legal document that provides a set of instructions with respect to who is to care for minor children, how assets (or money) and charitable gifts are to be distributed.
Similar to a financial POA, in that it grants a person the authority to make decisions on your behalf, but the authority lies in medical/health decisions, not financial.
Basic Estate Planning Documents
We know you want to create an estate plan, and we know you want it to be easy…and easy on the pockets. We heard you and created “The Basics”. We are able to save you time and money by offering a streamlined process whereby you complete our form, we draft your document based on the form, we meet once (virtually) to finalize your document and you handle the signing and notary (if applicable) on your own. That’s it!
If you have minor children, out-of-state assets, rental property, a business, total assets worth more than $5.93M, or you want to leave your assets to anyone other than your spouse (if applicable) and descendants (if applicable.; descendants include children and grandchildren), then “The Basics” is not for you. But if your estate is simple, your partner/spouse and children inherit everything, and you are willing to do some work on your own, then this may be an option.
Legal document that allows you to control what happens to your assets and name who will manage your estate after you pass.

Health Care Proxy (HP)
