The Stasny Law Firm serves clients in both estate planning (including the drafting of Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, and other documents affecting both property and health care), and in the probate or administration of estates after a person’s death (which may involve the probate of a Will, the determination of a person’s heirs, and other matters involved in passing on property and administering a person’s estate).
Estate planning is a process that involves making critical decisions that can affect you and your loved ones for years. It can involve major decisions about your future health care, the care of your minor children, the fate of major assets such as your home, retirement assets, mineral interests, and others. It can involve questions and possibilities that you may never have considered.
Some of the documents that we discuss with clients and use in estate plans include:
- Last Will and Testament:
- Durable Power of Attorney:
- Medical Power of Attorney for Healthcare
- Directive to Physicians and Family or Surrogates (aka “Living Will”)
- Marital Property Agreements
- Designation of Guardians
We can also advise clients about the naming of beneficiaries on assets like life insurance, 401(k)’s, IRAs, and other assets that may operate entirely apart from any Will or Trust you may have. For more information, call us for an appointment.
