Flat Fee Estate Planning
Our flat-fee estate planning means you know up front how much your plan will cost. Plans range from a simple will to a complete revocable living trust plan with financial powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, a health care directive, and deeds to transfer real property into your trust. We will discuss which plan best meets your needs during our free consult. The most common estate planning documents are discussed in more detail below.
Will and Living Trust
Most people know that a will directs the disposition of your assets on death. Wills may also nominate a guardian for your minor children. A will also determines the person that will handle your estate when you pass. A living trust can help with the ease of administration of your estate, but are not right for everyone. In our initial planning meeting we will discuss which option is right for you.
Health Care Power of Attorney
If you are unable to make your own health care decisions, the health care power of attorney will allow a trusted person to make those decisions on your behalf.
Financial Power of Attorney
A financial power of attorney allows someone to make financial decisions on your behalf. This person is called your agent. You may give your agent powers immediately or only upon your disability. In our initial planning meeting we will discuss which form of financial power of attorney is right for you.
Health Care Directives
This document lets your medical providers and your loved ones know what you would like to do if you are in a terminal condition and unable to make end of life decisions for yourself. A health care directive can give your providers and your family peace of mind when making end of life decisions on your behalf.
