Importance of a Valid Will 

A valid will is one’s voice beyond a lifetime, ensuring wishes are respected and their loved ones are provided for; aiming to save from family stress, uncertainty, and unnecessary costs. Crafting a will tailored to the individual’s unique circumstances offers protection to their assets and beneficiaries while minimising potential legal challenges. 

The Necessity of Reviewing Your Will 

Life’s milestones—marriage or divorce, the birth of children, significant financial changes and death of a named executor or beneficiary, and more —necessitate a review of an individual’s will. Keeping the will updated ensures that it accurately reflects the individual’s current wishes and circumstances. 

Understanding Powers of Attorney 

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants an individual the authority to make decisions on someone’s behalf -personal decisions related to care, welfare and health and/or financial decisions such as managing finances- should one become unable to do so. The firm can assist in determining the type of Power of Attorney, there are two types, that is right for the client’s circumstances, any specific restrictions the client wishes to include, and preparing the documents for them. 

The Role of Advance Health Directives 

An advance health directive, sometimes called a living will, is a formal way to give instructions about one’s health care if the individual is not able to communicate them on their own. An advance health directive outlines what medical treatment or health care the individual wants if they can no longer make decisions on their own. It can be general or very specific. 

Executor and Estate Administration Support 

An executor is a person with the responsibility to manage somebody’s estate according to the terms outlined in their Will. The role of an executor can be overwhelming, particularly in the grieving period. Estates vary in complexity and the executor’s duties can be far-reaching, and it is beneficial to be guided by an estate lawyer.
