At Whitestone Young, PC, we recommend that individuals consult with our attorneys for their estate planning needs. We understand that it can be difficult to consider end-of-life decisions, but estate planning documents can help you clearly specify your wishes regarding power of attorney, or establishing a decision-making proxy.
Commonly, a comprehensive estate plan consists of several documents working in conjunction. Those documents can include:
- Wills: These are typically used to specify the distribution of physical assets.
- Trusts: These are typically used to specify the distribution of money and can include special-needs trusts.
- Powers of attorney: These documents are designed to identify a proxy who can make either financial or health care decisions if you have lost the capacity to do so yourself.
- Health care directives: Through an advance health care directive, individuals can state end-of-life decisions, including do not resuscitate (DNR) orders.
No matter your age, health or wealth, it is crucial to consider your estate plan. Having these documents in place can help your surviving loved ones avoid unnecessary disputes regarding property transfer or other disagreements about the distribution of assets. Our Fairfax attorneys can answer your questions and provide the legal guidance you need.
