Powers of attorney are a vitally important component of preparations for the future. They directly name specific individuals who you wish to control key decisions when you are no longer able to do so. Without them, significant decisions regarding your health and finances can be taken out of your hands and handled against your wishes.
It is important that you have these directives in place now. You never know what the future holds, but you can be prepared for whatever happens.
At The Law Office of Ryan C. Moe, PLLC, we carefully instruct our clients in this process, providing them with the information they need to create powers of attorney directives that spell out their wishes. Our law firm will assist in the drafting of all necessary directives, including:
We will ensure that you create all of the directives needed to effectively manage your decisions and actions in case of incapacity. To arrange an initial consultation to discuss your situation, please contact our office today at 210-861-6000.
Powers of attorney can also be a useful tool for children. Without having to complete a guardianship, parents can name a relative or other trusted adult to assume specific parental rights for a period of time. This allows another individual to carry out duties on behalf of the parent without the parent relinquishing rights.
This differs from a guardianship in that care and custody of the child only last for a determined amount of time, rather than permanently as with a full surrender of parental rights.
