What Can Be Expected at My Initial Consultation?
You should be prepared to answer some important questions when meeting with an estate planning attorney, including the extent of your assets, who you want your assets to go to and when, and how you want your assets managed in the event that you cannot manage them yourself. You should know who you would want to nominate to care for your minor children and who will make decisions for you when you can no longer make decisions yourself. It is always helpful to have a list of your assets at the time of the appointment.
Estate Planning for Business Owners
Our attorneys guide business owners, as vital decisions are made regarding their business succession plans. A business succession plan can involve directives for business continuity in the event of your death, disability, divorce, or departure from the business.
Advance Healthcare Directive
An advance health care directive or living will is a legal document that asserts your medical choices and designates a person to make your healthcare decisions when you are incapacitated. Without an advance health care directive, your loved ones are left with difficult decisions, such as whether to consent to experimental treatments or to prolong life through artificial nutrition.
The stress involved in deciding and disputing your unknown desires will likely take an emotional toll on the people involved. Therefore, it is crucial that you have an advance healthcare directive in place.
Power of Attorney
A durable power of attorney names a person to make your financial decisions when you can no longer do so yourself. Designating an agent through a durable power of attorney delegates the power to handle your real and personal property, as well as any tax-related issues, while you are incapacitated. This is a smart move to make, and with the help and guidance of a qualified attorney, you can be confident that your financial interests will be protected.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Apart from helping clients plan for their elder years, the attorneys at Cecil Cianci Law, PC also help individuals and couples with their prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. As part of the estate planning process, our lawyers want to help our clients protect their assets, and this includes a discussion on whether a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is desired and even necessary.
