Power of Attorney
Assigning power of attorney is another way to help your loved ones make difficult decisions if you are unable to do so. This allows them to manage your care and assets if you become mentally or physically incapacitated.
Special Needs Planning
Special needs planning can help you protect the rights of your loved ones with special needs. This can include a plan to protect a disabled person’s access and right to government services as well as provide funding for long-term care.
Many parents worry about what will happen to their minor children after they pass. A will and estate plan allow you to appoint a guardian and a person you trust to manage your children’s inheritance, so they are always properly cared for.
A living will can guide your heirs on what to do if you become incapacitated and unable to communicate. It can help them make difficult medical decisions based on your wishes. This can may give them peace of mind that they are following the course of action you’d prefer.
Our estate planning attorneys can also help you prepare trust funds for your children, grandchildren, and other heirs. Trusts allow you to determine how and when certain assets are distributed. These can be used to pass assets to your heirs once they reach a certain age or meet a certain condition, regardless of whether you have passed away or not.
Probate & Will Contesting
No matter how well prepared an estate plan is, your will or your loved one’s will may need to go into probate to determine if the assets are properly distributed. You may even decide to contest the will if you feel that your loved one was not in sound mind or was being coerced while creating it. Our probate attorneys in Georgia and Florida can help you navigate the process.
