Attorney Jonathan K. Miller is an experienced Attorney you can count on to help ensure your wishes are followed during your illness, or after your death. It really is never too early to consult with an Attorney for Estate planning documents such as:
Last Will and Testament
A last will and testament allows an individual to specifically direct how their property will be distributed upon their death. The will must be properly drafted, signed and witnessed to comply with the applicable state statute. Without a last will and testament, property will be distributed in accordance with the Intestacy statute.
Durable Medical Power of Attorney (Living Will)
This is a written document that specifies what types of medical treatment are desired should the individual become incapacitated. Instructions may be general or very specific.
Durable Advanced Medical Directive
An advanced medical directive is used to authorize a person designated as a health care agent. When a patient is incapable of making his/her own medical decisions, a health care agent can act on the patient’s behalf to make decisions consistent with and based on the patient’s stated will.
Durable Power of Attorney
Through this type of advance directive, an individual executes legal documents that provide the power of attorney to others in the case of an incapacitating medical condition. The durable power of attorney allows an individual to make bank transactions, sign Social Security checks, apply for disability, or simply write checks to pay the utility bill while an individual is medically incapacitated.
