Setting an Appointment
Now that we’ve flipped the calendar page to a new year in a new decade, many of us are filling our planners with annual appointments, schedules and activities. Perhaps the most important appointment you can make in this new year is one you might not have previously considered: who will you appoint to stand in your place should you become unable to act on your own behalf? You may think that your estate is not large enough or complex enough to require an elaborate estate plan. That may be true … but your estate plan may be needed in order to express your wishes and to appoint someone to make financial and/or healthcare decisions if you are incapable. If you are the parent of minor-aged children, regardless of the wealth you may (or may not) have accumulated, perhaps your most important decision is who you would appoint to act as your children’s guardian should the need arise. It doesn’t matter the size of your estate – these are questions that require planning and an affirmative statement of your intent for your wishes to be known and acted on in the future.
So, consider who you would appoint -- who would you trust to act in the best interests of you and your family? While you are at it, why not set an appointment to come in for a free consultation! We can help you identify your legal needs, whether large or small, and provide you with an estate plan that is best suited for you. If you are a First Responder, active Military, or a Veteran, we’d love to show our appreciation for your service to others by offering special pricing on estate plan documents through February 28, 2020.
