Wills & Estates
It is awkward to think about death especially when you feel like you’re in the prime of life. It’s the one thing we are all guaranteed yet it is one of the major things we tend not to plan for. However, consider that planning for death is perhaps the ultimate act of love and protection for you and your family members.
Sometimes we believe the less we have, the less need there is for estate planning. But that is not so. The less you have, the less your dependents are likely to have and therefore what you can give them or give them access to takes on great importance. It is no different if you have much to leave for your loved ones: you and they need to be sure that your legacy will reach them, without unforeseen intervention.
Powers of Attorney speak to your wishes concerning your health care and property only while you are alive. They become invalid as soon as you pass. At this same time, your Will becomes effective and speaks to your wishes for your loved ones as soon as you pass. It is therefore necessary to have powers of attorney for your health while you are alive, another for your property while you are alive, together with a will to speak to your wishes upon your passing.
