Lake County Lawyer For Power Of Attorney

Building an effective estate plan calls for more than simply considering who will receive which assets upon death. A truly effective estate plan also makes provisions for your own future as well. Addressing questions about who will make decisions for you in the future should you be unable to is a critical element of an effective estate plan.

A durable power of attorney allows you to designate a particular person as being authorized to make certain decisions for you such as those regarding:

  • Finances – We all face the possibility that one day we may need someone to take responsibility for our finances. Many people live long after they are no longer able to manage their finances. Choosing who will bear that responsibility for you now can allow you to make the most informed choice. It can also provide you with peace of mind that should you need someone to assume such a role, it will be someone you trust.
  • Health care – Deciding now who will make health care decisions for you in the event of incapacitation allows you to choose that person wisely. For some, the responsibility of making health care decisions for a parent or other loved one may be too much to bear. Choosing now allows to wisely consider all potential options as well as allows that person to prepare for that role if it should arise.
