Prior Lake Power Of Attorney
An imperative element in a will and estate plan is appointing the representatives who will have power of attorney in the event of you being incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself. Powers of attorney are important for individuals and heterosexual and same-sex couples alike. It is also very important to note that elderly people with the capacity to understand and sign these documents should have them in place.
At Julius Law Offices, our Prior Lake power of attorney law firm can assist you in determining how you want your finances and health care matters dealt with, as well as exactly who will be handling them. We will delve into what the duties of each representative entail, and encourage you to think about who you feel would be up to the task. Understanding the responsibilities of each representative makes it much easier to choose people for each role.
Establishing Financial And Health Care Powers Of Attorney
Through our Prior Lake power of attorney law firm, you are able to appoint financial powers of attorney to one or two representatives, while also specifying what exactly each representative is allowed to do; such as paying bills, writing checks and selling property. The power of attorney is only rendered valid while you are alive; after your death, the personal representative/executor of your will handles your financial matters.
Health care powers of attorney allow you to appoint a health care agent who will make medical decisions for you in the event you are incapacitated. We can draw up a health care directive or living will in order to specify exactly what type of end-of-life/terminal care you desire. You may also leave burial or cremation instructions if you so choose.
With same-sex couples, health care powers of attorney are especially important. These insure that your partner is allowed the right to be with you and make health care decisions if you are incapacitated. We will make certain that you and your partner have all your rights secure under the Minnesota Patient Bill of Rights.
We offer a flat fee to create a will, powers of attorney and health care directives for an individual or a couple. Flat fees may be available for additional estate planning needs. Please speak with a lawyer Prior Lake power of attorney law firm to learn more.
