Elder Law Attorney Serving Chester County And Southeastern Pennsylvania
What is estate planning? It is a broad term that describes a vast and enormously important area of legal representation. Traditionally, an estate plan involves the creation, implementation and defense of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, and other planning documents.
These documents determine how your assets will be used and/or distributed if you become incapacitated or die. They can also set parameters for your medical care, so that you won’t be kept on life support, or receive other extraordinary treatments to prolong your life unnecessarily. They can also enable you to set aside money for yourself or your spouse or partner if one of you needs expensive nursing care. These days, estate plans can be both powerful and flexible, and the options are almost as expansive as your imagination.
A knowledgeable estate planning attorney can help you devise a plan designed to accomplish more of your financial and personal goals than you thought possible. A well-crafted and comprehensive estate plan by Law Office Therese L. Money, LLC can also provide clarity during the probate process, reducing the potential for a will contest or other protracted probate litigation.
