Estate Planning


What is Estate Planning?

 

You can help protect your family and give you peace of mind by doing an estate plan. The Estate Plan is not just a will or a trust but a cohesive plan to deal with the “what ifs” in life. You can plan who will make your medical and health decisions if an emergency comes up, you can plan who will take care of your finances if you are unable to for a while, you can provide for your children’s well being if you won’t be able to be there for them.

What Will AMC Legal Do?

I will listen to what your concerns are and draft the appropriate documents to meet these needs. I will walk you through the process, educate you on what you need to know and help you make the best decisions. Then I will create high quality documents customized to your unique situation and needs. I go beyond the standard form documents to address issues that most people don’t even think about.

Living Will $150
This document allows you to make your own decisions ahead of time as to what type of life prolonging treatments you do or do not want made on your behalf. This document is different from a Health Care Power of Attorney in that an agent does not make this decision on your behalf, but you are speaking for yourself ahead of time. It can take a difficult decision out of the hands of your loved ones and ensure you receive the life prolonging treatments you’d prefer. It if often referred to as a DNR or Do Not Resuscitate Order. This is included in all packages if requested.
