Reno Nevada Estate Planning Attorneys Help You Protect What You Have Built Over a Lifetime
Regardless of your age or net worth, you have an estate. By planning ahead with a Reno Nevada estate planning attorney, you ensure that your medical care and estate are handled the way you want. Do not burden your loved ones with making tough decisions when emotions run high. Dictating who gets what, and when they get it, removes the potential for family feuds and guesswork. Estate planning with a Reno Nevada estate planning attorney can involve any or all of the following:
- Medical Power of Attorney appoints an agent to make decisions on your health care if you are unable to. This includes authorizing treatment, deciding what treatment shall be given, and deciding to what extent life-sustaining treatment should be administered.
- General Power of Attorney appoints a rep to act on your behalf in a very broad sense, empowering him to make any and all decisions on your behalf, if you are unable to. This includes financial decisions, real estate transactions, legal matters, and health care decisions.
- Specific Power of Attorney appoints an agent to act on your behalf for specific matters, severely limiting his decision-making power to certain areas. This can include negotiating tax matters or maintaining your business operations.
- Wills or Living Trusts serve similar purposes, but are handled differently. Both documents detail exactly how you want your estate distributed. A will is processed through probate court, but a living trust is not. Deciding which is right for you is based on the value of your estate. Our Reno Nevada estate planning attorneys can help you analyze your estate and determine which option will be most beneficial for you and your loved ones.
