Without An Estate Plan, The State Will Divide Your Assets
Creating an estate plan allows you to make many important, personal decisions. Without at least a will, your estate will be distributed according to Pennsylvania law.
With an estate plan, you can name guardians for your children. You will determine who can make decisions about your health care and finances if you are incapacitated. Using a will and, if necessary, trusts, you will ensure that your estate is distributed according to your wishes. You can also specify your preferences for end-of-life care and funeral arrangements.
An estate plan typically includes the following documents:
- A will
- Financial and health care powers of attorney
- Health care directives
- A living will
We can also assist you with establishing guardianships for minors and vulnerable adults. While it is better to do this in advance, we can help you in an emergency if necessary.
