Factors to Consider for Estate Planning
The Law Offices of Robert E. O’Connor, P.C. has extensive knowledge and experience assisting clients to organize and establish their estate planning. Mr. O’Connor’s legal services cover a wide range of estate concerns.
Power of Attorney
This reliable method of establishing another person to manage your finances protects your welfare if you lose the ability to make sound decisions for your investments, bank account, and other financial holdings. A durable financial power of attorney secures your decision because it can’t be changed over time or if you become disabled in some way.
Wills and Trusts
A will is a legal document that establishes an individual’s wishes for how their properties and assets get managed and distributed in the case of death. It’s crucial that you have an attorney with vast experiences in will and trusts to handle the drafting and publication of your will, so it will be legally recognized.
Advanced Healthcare Directive
This legal document is also called a living will, and an individual prepares it with their trust attorney like Mr. O’Connor to specify what they wish to have done in the case that a physical or mental incapacity removes their ability to make a decision on their own healthcare. This document is comprised of both a Healthcare Power of Attorney and a living will.
Chapter 21—Intestate Succession Laws in Pennsylvania stipulate that without a will and upon your death, some of your assets can automatically transfer to your nearest relative. However, these laws only affect assets that were legally in your name that and you owned exclusively. Our attorney will help you navigate the specifics of which beneficiaries get what.
