Orlando Powers Of Attorney Law Firm
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. You must determine who makes these decisions before potential incapacitation. 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.
Sadly, too many people attempt to create a power of attorney when it is too late. When an individual can no longer make life decisions for themselves, you are looking at an emergency guardianship. This action comes at a greater cost. A power of attorney costs a few hundred dollars while an emergency guardianship costs several thousand dollars. Taking preemptive action can save you money and added stress down the road. Our team is here to help you create your power of attorney document.

When you meet with one of our attorneys, we will discuss the two options you have for designating power of attorney:
- 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 as 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.
