Securing Your Healthcare and Financial Preferences for Your Later Years
Nobody wants to look too far into the future, but it is important that you are prepared when it comes. Should an accident or illness disable or incapacitate a loved one, it is important to know your options. Our skilled attorneys will represent you in matters of requiring guardianship or conservatorship, or becoming a guardian or conservator yourself. We will make sure you have all the information that goes along with these responsibilities and are fully aware of your rights. Your healthcare and finances will be in good hands when you apply for guardianship under our representation, and even if you become incapacitated, your estate will remain as strong as ever.
Plan Your Future Wishes In Advance With a Living Will
While we here at Higinbotham Law Offices provide excellent legal representation in cases of guardianship for dire circumstances, we recommend not letting it progress to that dire state. You have the ability to tell your doctor the type of care you wish to receive before accident or illness incapacitates you. Our excellent attorneys will assist you in forming an Advance Healthcare Directive, better known as a “living will”. This document will inform your healthcare professionals of your wishes in case of disability or incapacitation. Another option we can help you to form is a durable power of attorney. A durable power of attorney allows you to select someone you trust to act as your agent. This type of agreement will prevent your loved ones from paying court costs and filing yearly reports, as they would have to do if they became a court-appointed guardian instead.
