Living Wills (Advanced Healthcare Directives)
Why Should You Hire a Legal Expert to Create Your Living Will
The Collaborative Process can provide a forum for you and your loved ones to discuss your preferences in advance and ensure that your wishes are carried out. An experienced estate planning attorney will help you navigate Pennsylvania Estate Law and develop a living will (advance healthcare directive) which will speak for you when you can no longer speak for yourself.
Advantages of a Living Will
In the event you become incapacitated or ill, it can be a very unsettling time for your loved ones. By creating your will in advance, you are removing the decision making and financial burden from family, creating a less stressful situation for all those affected. It also ensures you get the care that you prefer without question. A living will will provide specific information about estate and business succession plans. A certified financial advisor and law professionals will ensure you and your family understand necessary estate taxes, the probate process, and more.
Delegating Financial Affairs to a Power of Attorney
It is also important to designate a power of attorney to take care of your financial affairs in the event that you are unable to.
