Wills & Powers of Attorney Glennons Hill
Wills are a crucial part of your personal and business assets and require careful planning and consideration. With blended families, children suffering from disabilities and life changes our team will provide advice and assistance in the preparation of your Will in determining who is responsible for your Estate (Executor) and who will receive your assets (Beneficiaries).
Drafting a Will is crucial in order to confirm that all your loved ones are addressed, and all your assets are dispersed in line with your intentions after your passing.
The process of drafting a Will can be overwhelming, but our team can assist you through each phase to diminish the risk of your Will being disputed. Typically, a Will may be challenged if a family member is omitted or not adequately accounted for. Other kinds of claims might be due to allegations of lack of capacity, undue influence, or breach of trust.
Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)
This is a legal instrument whereby you assign a reliable individual (known as “the attorney”) to make personal, financial, legal, and property-related decisions for you, should you lose the mental capability to make such decisions.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is given to someone that you trust to make the right financial and personal decisions on your behalf.
Some responsibilities that an attorney can perform on your behalf include: settling your bills, signing documents, buying or selling real estate, and handling shares or bank accounts.
Medical Treatment Decision
Everyone has the prerogative to decide about their own medical treatment. But, if you find yourself unable to make these decisions either for a short period or permanently, you can select a medical decision-maker on your behalf. The process of appointing a person for this can be daunting, yet our team is prepared to guide and support you on whom and when you should designate a trusted individual to make medical decisions for you.
Advanced Care Directive
Is a legally binding document that empowers you to make clear arrangements for your future health, care and end of life matters. This document records your decisions and wishes for medical treatment. It also stipulates what medical treatment you do and do not want in case of emergencies. You will need to consult your doctor when completing an Advance Care Directive document.
