We are pleased to introduce a new service we hope will be helpful to our clients and the younger generation members of their families.
Most people know that they need to have a will, power of attorney, health care proxy and a living will. They know they should plan their estates to ensure their assets, large or small, get distributed according to their wishes. However, for most young adults, this is not the first thing on your to-do list. They might think it is too expensive, or that they do not need it – not yet, anyway.
The plain truth is that young couples, especially young couples with children, are often in greater need of proper planning.
Whether you are a member of a married or unmarried couple, traditional or same sex, with or without children, these simple documents can make a big difference in your lives. If your partner becomes ill and you are not married, no amount of coaxing will convince an ER doctor to let you make critical decisions. For young parents, an untimely death can leave your children in the care and custody of those whom you may not know – or those you do not want to raise your children.
Our Right from the Start(SM) plan offers the basic information and documents that will ensure that you start out with the legal documents you need. The plan is priced to work with younger budgets and includes four basic documents:
• A Basic Will, including a trust that provides for assets to pass first to your spouse and then to the children in trust until an age you deem suitable.
• Powers of Attorney
• Living Wills
• Health Care Proxies
The price includes meeting with an attorney and preparation and filing documents.
