There is no more difficult a situation, than that which involves the sudden, or even gradual, disability of a loved one. It is best to plan for that disability before it renders a person unable to participate in decisions regarding their financial affairs and healthcare. The truth is that every adult should have a plan in place with a minimum of a durable power of attorney for financial affairs and a health care advocate power of attorney for healthcare decisions.
If a plan is not in place and a person becomes disabled the family is left with pursuit of a guardianship and conservatorship in the probate court. This is an expensive with ongoing public court supervision. Our planning services allow you to avoid this situation, save money, and maintain family privacy.
