There are so many people who simply put off meeting with an attorney to have estate documents prepared because it requires thinking about death. It is understandable, but it is something that should really be thought about whether young or old, married or single, or persons with or without children.
Planning ahead for that "unthinkable", actually once done will provide a sense of peace of mind. The basic estate documents needed for the vast majority of people are a Last Will and Testament which sets forth one's intent of how debts are to be paid and how their assets are to be distributed: to who and in what percentage. A Power of Attorney allows another to help manage a person's affairs if while living, when one becomes incapable because of a physical or mental infirmity. The third is what is called a Durable Medical Power of Attorney. This document provides for one's intent and wishes in the event one is unable to make certain medical decisions, to include whether to be continued on life support. All of these provide for an orderly method reflecting one's wishes and will be in all but rare situations upheld and enforced.
Lovejoy Law Offices prepares these documents for its clients at a very reasonable price because it recognizes the significant importance of having them in place, and of the fact that people would rather put off thinking about or acting on this "unthinkable" thought of one's passing. Contrary to what many are told, the process of probating an estate is not an expensive endeavor. In fact in the long run, it is less expensive if you have these estate documents in place and it makes it much easier for your family upon your passing as well. It also is not accurate that by having a Will and it being probated by the courts, that you are "airing your assets out in public". A person's Will does not have to be filed with any court and it can be changed and revised at any time during one's lifetime so long as that person is still mentally competent.
