Everyone needs a will. Why?

Because if you don't, a judge may decide what happens to your property, not you.

My wife and I have had wills for decades. In a series of documents we have told each other and everyone else, where we want our property to go, and how we wish to be cared for if we are incapacitated or about to pass on. We've decided whom we want to make medical decisions, and other decisions about our property, when we can't. And we've told the doctors what we want them to do when our time has come to leave this life. If we had children who needed to be cared for, we would establish a trust for income and guardianship for their custody, to take care of them if we both died at the same time.

Our main documents are:

  • Wills
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Medical Powers of Attorney
  • Directives to Physicians

You may wish to speak with a qualified attorney about any of these very important documents.
