Incapacity Planning

IF THE UNTHINKABLE OCCURRED AND YOU WERE UNABLE TO HANDLE YOUR OWN AFFAIRS, WHO WOULD STEP IN ON YOUR BEHALF?  WOULD THE COURT HAVE TO DECIDE?

Incapacity Planning? The same questions could be asked of spouses or your aging parents.
Would you or someone
else be able to immediately step into their shoes to handle their affairs?

We are frequently asked to prepare Emergency Powers of Attorney for people’s loved ones. Unfortunately, they often come to the realization that the party needing the Powers of Attorney is unable to sign the documents due to their incapacity. This gives rise to many difficulties as they try to navigate their loved one’s affairs. Frequently it requires going to court and declaring the loved one incompetent and having a guardian appointed. This is usually a very long and expensive route to take.s

Incapacity Planning Can Avoid added Hardship in the 
worst possible times!

Dealing with incapacity would be devastating on so many fronts, but even more so if you hadn’t taken the time to plan for your incapacity.

Who would make decisions for you about your care, pay your bills, access your accounts, communicate with insurance companies, and address so many other crucial matters?

In the absence of proper planning, a Guardianship proceeding would likely be required so the court could appoint someone (and quite possible not the “someone” you would have chosen!) to care for you.
