When Do You Need a Will?
If you have children, or own real property, then you need a basic Will. It always surprises me, when people I know confess that they have not taken steps to provide for future planning of their assets. I know. Not really a subject you want to bring up at a social occasion. Let's face it. Talking about death is not the best subject. But it is important to sit down with a professional attorney, and find out what your options are to provide for your family in case the inevitable happens.
There are also Durable Medical Power of Attorney documents that I typically advise my Estate Planning clients to get. But you have to draft such documents before hand in advance of any incapacity. Therefore, it is imperitative to be proactive before any alzheimers, demensia, stroke, or coma sets in. Such documents are important for you to decide who can make medical treatment decisions for you, in case you become incapacitated.
Drafting a Will, Trust, Power of Attorney, Guardianship, Advanced Directive and Burial Instructions are some of the documents I advise clients to include in a comprehensive Estate Plan.
