Who Will Make Decisions For You If You Become Unable? Understand Your Powers Of Attorney Options.
Is an estate plan complete without durable powers of attorney (POA) for health and finance and an advance health care directive? After over 50 years of estate planning, we do not believe it is. Why?
Because these two legal documents allow you to appoint someone you trust to make health care decisions and/or manage your finances in the event you are incapacitated or unable to do so. This is the point of planning, to prepare for every contingency. At the Law Office of Raoul J. LeClerc, we have decades of experience with California POA documents. Let us provide you with peace of mind by allowing us to create a plan to meet your long-term needs.
Power Of Attorney Documents Can Help You Avoid A Conservatorship
Over the years, we have seen many people wait until they become ill or are of advanced age before considering these most valuable documents. But, the reality is that tragedy can strike anytime and at any age. This is why you want to appoint someone with a financial power of attorney. This person will be able to manage your finances if you are unable.
You also want to appoint someone with a health care power of attorney. Also known as a health care proxy, this person will be able to make decisions regarding your medical care if you are unable to.
With these documents in place, your loved ones can provide immediate assistance without having to petition the court for a conservatorship. A conservatorship is a meticulous process that requires both time and money.
Creating Your Power Of Attorney Documents
Having a power of attorney in place is one of the most economical tools a client can sign to ensure the person of your choice has the authority to manage your affairs. We can discuss with you how these documents pertain to your specific situation and how to choose and designate a person. We will ensure that all of your documents are completed in order and appropriately shared (with your designated person, spouse and medical provider), and securely filed.
