Make The Right Choices For You And Your Family
Wills, trusts, powers of attorney or living wills? Not sure what option is best for you and your family? A properly crafted estate plan will not only protect your loved ones and honor your wishes when you are gone but also protect you and your wishes while you are alive, incapacitated or unable to make proper financial or medical decisions for yourself.
My name is Maria K. Boyles. Make an appointment with Solid Rock Law Firm, PLLC, for me to assist with developing a comprehensive plan for your particular need and circumstance. Your plan can be simple or complex – every situation is different. I will help you understand the choices you should make to protect your loved ones.
What Documents Should My Estate Plan Have?
Your needs are different from anyone else’s. The documents you should incorporate into your estate plan will vary depending on your finances, your wishes for your beneficiaries and many other factors. However, some of the major documents that every basic estate plan should include are:
- Wills: A last will and testament states how you want to distribute your assets among your beneficiaries.
- Powers of attorney: This grants someone else the power to make legal decisions for you if you lose your capacity.
- Advance medical directives/living wills: You can let your medical team and loved ones know your wishes when it comes to your medical treatment.
- Trusts: Using a trust can pass assets on to a beneficiary while avoiding taxes and probate.
Although discussing the end of your life can be difficult, I do my best to make you feel comfortable. I provide friendly and honest counsel that you can trust.
