Understanding Estate Planning Documents
When developing your estate plan, it is important to know what you have at your disposal to protect your assets and plans for them. Instead of going through estate planning on your own, and leaving your assets at risk, The Law Office of Annalie Alvarez can help you understand how to defend your wishes with a thorough estate plan.
Estate Planning Tools At Your Disposal
There are many features of estate planning that can help you defend the assets you worked so hard to earn. As our attorney, Annalie Alvarez, builds a plan you can count on, she makes the most out of these factors, including:
Last Will and Testament
Outlines what to do with possessions, whether the deceased will leave them to another person, a group or donate them to charity. It also describes what happens to other things that they are responsible for, such as custody of dependents, management of accounts and financial interests.
Permits the disclosure of personal health information to an individual of your choosing for a purpose that would otherwise not be permitted by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
Durable Power Of Attorney And Designation Of Medical Surrogate
Allow someone you appoint to make financial and medical decisions for you in the event that you are unable to make those decisions for yourself.
States your wishes regarding life-sustaining medical treatments during end-of-life situations.
Allow an individual to designate who they wish to be named as their ward or caregiver of their property, and person.
