Do You Need a Will in Place Before You Leave for Vacation?
Has the Loss of a Loved One Made You Decide It’s Time for Your Own Will?
Do You Want to Make Changes to an Existing Will?
You’ve worked hard to build your estate. You deserve to choose how and to whom that estate is distributed. Whatever the reason, you’ve decided that now is the time to review your estate. If you have assets that need to be distributed at the time of your death, you need an estate plan. If you have minor children who need to be cared for in the event of your death, you need an estate plan. We can help you with your simple estate planning needs.
There are many decisions that need to be made.
- Who will distribute your assets at the time of your death?
- Who do you want to receive your assets?
- Who will care for your minor children?
- Who will handle the finances for your minor children in the event of your death?
- Your children may not be minors but you do not want them to receive a windfall at a young age. Can someone manage the assets in your estate until they are older?
- Who will handle your finances if you are incapacitated and unable to do so?
- Who will make your medical decisions if you are unable to do so?
An estate plan ensures that your wishes regarding each of those questions are honored. We can provide you with a will, power of attorney, medical power of attorney and living will. Having these documents in place is the best way to ensure that your wishes are respected in the event that you become incapacitated and at the time of your death. At the Law Office of Ellen M. Ross, we can help you feel at ease with the process while we craft an estate plan that addresses the issues that may arise so you can feel confident knowing that your wishes, when you are unable to make them due to incapacity or death, will be honored.
