INCAPACITY PLANNING (OR LIFETIME PLANNING)
Incapacity and lifetime planning ensures there is a clear directive regarding your wishes should an unexpected health issue arise. If you become unable to handle your own legal affairs, having a plan in place guarantees that your chosen representative, medical team, and all other related individuals have clear directions to follow and respect your wishes.
Legal documents and considerations in this area include:
- Powers of attorney
- Representation agreements for health care
- Living Wills
- Committee applications (for those who are no longer capable of managing their affairs, but have not or cannot appoint a power of attorney)
Estate planning encompasses all details pertaining to the allocation of personal assets upon your passing. Having the right documentation and structure in place helps to protect beneficiaries against any unnecessary confusion or stress during a difficult and emotional time. Related services include:
- Life insurance trusts
- Acting as an executor or trustee in your will or trust
- Serving as an alternate executor or trustee as needed
Our estate administration services are designed to provide clarity and reassurance during this time of transition for family members. We are happy to answer any questions that may arise and provide as much assistance as required.
Our support includes:
- Guiding executors and trustees through the process and necessary steps of carrying out your wishes.
- Probate applications for those who have passed away with an originally signed will.
- Administration applications and variations of probate in the event of someone passing away without a valid will, or in the absence of the originally executed will.
