Wills & Powers of Attorney Panton 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.
Although creating a Will can be intimidating, our team can navigate you through every step to decrease the chance of someone contesting your Will. Wills are usually disputed if a family member feels they were neglected or not sufficiently considered. Other sorts of disputes can emerge from perceived lack of capacity, undue influence, or violation of trust.
Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)
This legal document enables you to nominate a trustworthy person (named as “the attorney”) to handle your personal, financial, legal, and property matters if you lose the mental capacity to manage them yourself.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is conferred upon an individual you trust to make suitable financial and personal judgments on your behalf.
A few of the roles an attorney can fulfill on your behalf are: settling your bills, signing papers, executing property transactions, and managing shares or bank accounts.
Medical Treatment Decision
Each person has the right to make their own medical treatment choices. Yet, if you are incapacitated and unable to make decisions, whether temporarily or permanently, you can designate a medical proxy who can make medical decisions for you. Selecting someone to make these decisions can be challenging, but our team can provide guidance and support in determining who and when to appoint a trusted individual to handle your medical decisions.
Advanced Care Directive
It’s a legally binding instrument that enables you to set forth explicit provisions for your future health, care, and end of life scenarios. This document contains your decisions and preferences for medical treatment and outlines what kind of medical treatment you want and don’t want during emergencies. You should seek the advice of your doctor when drafting an Advance Care Directive document.
