Wills and Estates
A Will is the document in which a person states what is to happen with his or her assets after he or she passes away.
A Will is therefore a very important document and the importance of doing it right should not be taken lightly. Not having a Will when a person passes away causes great stress and frustration to family members and often causes a lot of family fights and disputes.
To avoid any further stress and issues associated with death, let a lawyer assist you to draft a Will which will correctly reflect your wishes and you can relax knowing that it is done right and there is one less thing that your family has to worry about after you’re gone.
Enduring Power of Attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney is another document which forms part of what is generally referred to as Estate Planning Documents.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document in which you appoint an Attorney (any one or more persons you wish to appoint) who can make decisions for you when you no longer can make your own decisions.
This is a very important document which can really assist your comfort in life when you can not make decisions for yourself any more.
Advance Health Directive
An Advance Health Directive is another document which forms part of what is generally referred to as Estate Planning Documents.
Advance Health Directive is a document in which a person states what kind of medical treatment he or she wants, or perhaps don’t want, in different circumstances.
An Advance Health Directive is a very important document because it assists your appointed Attorney under and Enduring Power of Attorney appointment in making decisions for you which you would prefer.
An Advance Health Directive takes away a lot of the stress and burdens of an Attorney appointed under and Enduring Power of Attorney associated with important health care decisions.
It is therefore important to do the right thing… if you put the responsibility on a family member or friend to make health decisions for you… make it easier on them by doing an Advance Health Directive which will help them make the right decisions for you.
