Are you and your family ready for the eventual disbursement of your legacy? Everything that you have earned throughout your life or that you want to pass on to your spouse, children, and family, represents your final will and estate. With the complications involved in the process, our estate lawyer in Kingston helps various individuals and families understand and plan for their future. Call us at Petty Law Office to discuss your unique needs.
Having a will simplifies the administrative part of your estate at a time when your loved ones are grieving and under stress. Keeping in mind your needs and requirements, we can prepare all required paperwork needed for your estate plan, including:
Wills and estate planning
Powers of attorney
Powers of attorney for personal care and for property are also recommended and often go hand-in-hand with wills. If you get sick or are injured, the person you name as attorney for personal care can make decisions such as what medical care you will receive, where you will live, and other personal and health-related decisions. Your attorney for property, again if you are incapable, can manage your finances and make financial decisions, including paying your bills.
Effective Legal Representation for Wills and Estate Cases
Making a will covers so many aspects of your life and places you front and centre in making the crucial decisions about your assets, your real property, your personal effects and possibly a business you built - decisions you make before your death, leaving your loved ones with clear instructions as to what you want to see happen. In a Will you will name a person and usually an alternate person is recommended whose responsibility it is to carry out your wishes as outlined in your will.
