What is estate planning?
Estate planning often deals with how someone’s assets and possessions are distributed in the event of someone’s death. Another important part of estate planning often involves outlining, in detail, your wishes for your medical care if you sustain a serious injury or long-term illness which prevents you from being able to make decisions. Some of the most common legal documents utilized as part of estate planning include:
- Last will and testament
- Living will
It can be difficult to decide the best time to start thinking about estate planning. Of Counsel attorney Secola suggests that couples and new families consider drawing up a will as soon as possible. Having a will can protect your spouse or child should anything happen to you, regardless of how many assets and how much property you currently own.
If you have accrued substantial personal wealth, it is important to create plans to manage it. Of Counsel attorney Secola can help you with a will, trust, and more. He can also handle estate administration.
What is elder law?
As we grow older, many of us may experience significant physical, mental or emotional changes. Many older adults may need assistance in the final years of their life or long-term term care due to a mental or physical disability.
It’s important to carefully consider planning for a disability or end-of-life care. By creating a plan, you can insure long-term care provisions and cover end-of-life arrangement expenses. You can also express your wishes should you ever be unable to make future decisions on your own. If necessary, we can also work with you with your family in dealing with probate court.
