We can’t control everything in life. The worst case scenario happens sometimes. But having a plan for such catastrophes can minimize the impact on you and your family when that worst case scenario does come along.
At The Allen Law Firm in West Columbia, we encourage everyone to have a Will, a Durable Power-of-Attorney, and a Healthcare Power-of-Attorney. The Will document provides guidance to your loved ones after your death, while the other documents makes it easier for your loved ones to handle your affairs while you are alive.
Having a Durable Power-of-Attorney and a Healthcare Power-of-Attorney before disaster strikes is often invaluable to your loved ones who simply want to carry out your wishes. Similarly, planning your estate properly can help your family avoid a complicated probate process during an already emotional time after you death.
