Taking care of end of life decisions is not always on the top of your to do list, but the importance of making these decisions prior to “something happening” is essential in helping your family through a crisis or emergency situation.

Mari Alice will discuss specific estate planning options and needs with you.  There are four basic documents she can put in place for you – your last will and testament, a living will, a medical power of attorney, and a general durable power of attorney.  These documents will give you peace of mind that in the case you are medically or physically incapable of making decisions for yourself that you have elected someone to manage and care for your medical needs and/or your financial needs.

18.  This is the magic number for thinking about estate planning.  Why?  When a person turns 18, he or she is an adult in the eyes of the law, and even if they are living with their parents and/or covered under their parent’s insurance, a parent no longer has legal authority to act or speak on their behalf.  To bridge the gap when an adult is away at college, is still living at home, or covered under their parent’s insurance, the adult child can give a parent legal authority over his/her medical and/or financial matters through a power of attorney.
