Helping Clients Plan For The Possibility Of Physical And Mental Incapacity
One important issue to consider during the estate planning process is how you want medical and financial decisions to be made in the event of your physical or mental incapacity. Trusts, powers of attorney and living wills are tools that are often used to address these concerns.
I am Randy L. Williams, an experienced Loveland attorney drafting powers of attorney and living wills on behalf of clients throughout northern Colorado. I can help you carefully consider your incapacity planning options and draft documents appropriate to your specific situation.
Drafting Documents Based On Your Individual Needs And Concerns
A power of attorney is a document that gives someone else the authority to act on your behalf. A durable power of attorney is a type of power of attorney that enables someone else to continue acting on your behalf if you become legally unable to make your own decisions.
Powers of attorney are powerful documents that should not be treated lightly. A power of attorney could give someone else immediate and indefinite authority to act on your behalf.
If you only want to give someone a power of attorney for limited purposes, it is important to work with an experienced lawyer to craft a document that meets your individual needs.
A living will is a document expressing your wishes regarding life-saving and life-preserving medical treatment. Your living will essentially gives instructions to the person who holds your power of attorney or anyone else who may need to make medical decisions affecting you.
