At Bellefonte Law, we help you gain the peace of mind that goes with preparing for whatever happens in life. We do not use one-size-fits-all documents. We get to know you, your family, and your specific needs. We do the legal work, but in the end you craft your estate plan with us.
Your estate plan begins with your values. We get to know you, what is important to you, and we help you identify your goals. Spending this extra time early on in our relationship with you helps us craft an estate plan that reflects who you are.
There are many components to an Estate Plan, from managing your assets to end of life planning and distrubitoin upon your death.
A well-crafted Estate Plan will include the legal documents required to authorize the people you trust to implement your Estate Plan.
Some estate planning documents are executed and effective while you are alive, so that your assets and personal affairs are carefully managed in the way that you want, even if you are no longer able to manage them on your own. These documents are often used to preserve assets in the event that a nursing facility or some other type of long-term care is needed. They include:
- Financial powers of attorney
- Health care powers of attorney
- Health care advance directives/Living Will
Other estate planning documents are designed to be effective after your death. These documents help assure that your assets are distributed in accordance with the law, to the designated beneficiaries, and in the amounts specified. They include:
- Last wills and testaments
- Beneficiary designations
