If you were to become incapacitated or pass away suddenly, would your family and assets be protected? If you can't answer confidently, then it's time to contact attorney Charles C. Tucker.
A will or revocable trust (living trust) allows you to leave legally enforceable instructions to provide for the people you care about and to handle your property and business. In a financial power of attorney, you appoint people you trust to pay your bills and look after your assets in case you can't. With a medical power of attorney and advance declaration (living will), you communicate your decisions about your medical care and choose the people who will talk with your medical providers about your care if you are unable.
You, like most people, would probably rather not think about death or the possibility of becoming incapacitated. Maybe you are putting off taking the necessary steps to prepare. But if you put it off too long, you may lose the chance to communicate your wishes. Setting up a proper estate plan in advance will help you and the people around you know that your decisions have been communicated in a legally binding manner and that those decisions will be carried out by people you have selected.
