Estate Planning is no longer limited to Wills and Trusts.
Estate Planning now is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person’s lifetime, for the management and disposal of that person’s estate during the person’s life, and after death, while minimizing tax consequences.
Estate Planning also includes establishing a plan for managing a person’s life, healthcare, and affairs in the event that person becomes incapacitated or too unwell to care for him or herself.
Finally, Estate Planning includes providing directives for health care during one’s life, as well as carrying out that person’s wishes in regards to his or her remains after death.
At Pakpour Family Law, a client’s Estate Plan typically includes:
- A will,
- Durable Power of Attorney,
- Advanced Healthcare Directive,
- HIPPA Authorization,
- and other documents.
While we are happy to assist our clients in any way they seek, Pakpour Family Law sees you as a whole person, requiring an Estate Plan that ensures minimal disruption to your life and those of your heirs in the event of your death or incapacitation. Therefore, we typically prepare these documents together for one flat rate.
The important thing is that you have the peace of mind to carry on, knowing that your affairs will be in order should the unthinkable occur.
