Basic power of attorney information


Most Kent area residents are not thrilled at discussing what would happen to them or their estate if they become incapacitated. It makes sense, because who really ever wants to think about the end of their life or a time when they are not able to make decisions? But, that time will come for each of us and careful planning will ensure a person's needs and wishes are met including health care decisions.

A power of attorney is a personal representative who can act on the grantor's request if the person becomes incapacitated. The power of attorney document spells out what the person can do on the grantor's behalf. This can include financial business, paying of bills and other important tasks. If a person doesn't have a power of attorney set up a guardianship may need to be established which can be expensive. It is important to have a power of attorney before anything happens to a person so that they are prepared for the unexpected.

A legal professional who is skilled in estate planning can help a family who needs to establish an estate plan, create a will or trust, establish a power of attorney and many other estate planning needs. An attorney understands how each family is unique and has their own needs. They know how to protect a family's assets, help a family create a plan to pass their assets to the next generation or to a charity of choice and making sure children are protected. Planning ahead for the future is smart in making sure that a family's goals will be met with a legal solution.

Estate planning is for every family. There are many estate planning services that can be created for a family's unique situations. A power of attorney is a basic document that all families should establish to create a peace of mind about the future.
