An important aspect of estate planning is considering who you want to act on your behalf in the event you become temporarily or permanently incapacitated later in life. This relates to a wide range of important life matters, from health care and housing to financial decisions. While these are highly personal issues, it is still wise to seek the advice and guidance of a qualified estate planning attorney. With the right legal representation, you will understand your options and can find peace of mind that your best interests will always be protected.
If You Are Not In A Position To Make Your Own Decisions, Who Will Make Them For You?
At Korshak & Associates, P.A., our estate planning attorneys have spent years helping central Florida families plan for their futures. We have extensive experience in powers of attorney matters and can help you determine the right representatives to carry out your wishes. To schedule a no-risk consultation, please contact our firm today at 407-917-6786 or toll free at 800-587-2470.
When you meet with one of our attorneys, we will discuss the two options you have for designating powers of attorneys:
- Health care power of attorney (often called a health care proxy) designates an individual who will make medical decisions on your behalf, many times in the event of an emergency. This is different, however, from a health care directive, which is a set of predetermined medical instructions for your doctors and family.
- Financial power of attorney designates who will make financial decisions for you. This can include real estate matters such as selling your home or assets, as well paying your bills and debts.
In many cases, only one family member or personal representative will be designated for both medical and financial decisions. However, numerous individuals find they are more comfortable having two separate representatives. When you meet with our law firm, we will help you determine the best option for you.
