What Are Wills & Living Wills?
A will directs the disposal of your property, both real and personal, at the time of your death. Drafting a will puts less pressure and trouble on the shoulders of your family when you are deceased. In addition, properly titling your real and personal property will make for a quick administration after your death.
A living will is a document that directs health care personnel as to the treatment or lack of treatment that you wish to receive should you enter a terminally ill or permanently unconscious state. If you do not have a living will your wishes may not be honored should you become terminally ill or permanently unconscious.
Powers of Attorney
A power of attorney gives a trusted individual the power to decide on financial and healthcare decisions for you at a time when you are unable to make them yourself. A healthcare power of attorney prevents the need for a guardian to be appointed in the event you become unable to make healthcare decisions for yourself. It is important to draft these documents while you are mentally capable of doing so.
The Probate Litigation Process
When a family member dies you will want a competent, caring, lawyer to guide you through the probate process. Dailey Law Offices has the right probate lawyer in Hilliard to help you through this difficult time. We will meet with you to gather all necessary information to open an estate in probate court for your deceased family member or friend and ensure that the estate is closed as quickly as possible.
In the event that a family member no longer has the mental capacity to care for themselves and a healthcare power of attorney is not in place, Dailey Law Offices can assist you or a family member in obtaining a guardianship. A guardianship ensures you can make decisions necessary to best care for your loved one. Dailey Law Offices offers affordable prices on estate planning packages for individuals and couples in central Ohio.
Simple Family Trusts
If you have minor children it is important to establish a simple family trust before you are deceased. This allows the trustee to spend money for the benefit of your child without asking permission from the probate court every time an expenditure is made.
