In some situations, guardianship is required to ensure your welfare or the welfare of a loved one is accounted for after incapacitation. There comes a point in life when it becomes too difficult to take care of oneself, think clearly and make rational decisions. If you are no longer able to make sound financial decisions, a conservatorship might be necessary to care for your money.
Our legal team is here to help you petition the court for guardianship/conservatorship in the event your loved one lacks a power of attorney. We will help you file the proper legal documents, submit the required notices in accordance with court rules and make a convincing argument the guardianship or conservatorship really is necessary to serve your loved one’s interests. We can also make a convincing case you are the ideal guardian or conservator willing to care for the person in question, arrange medical assistance as necessary and ensure a high quality of life.
Power of Attorney
A power of attorney is a powerful legal tool that designates an individual, referred to as an agent, to act on another person’s behalf. If you are a senior citizen or have a senior citizen in your life, you should meet with our Harrisburg elder law attorneys to determine if power of attorney makes sense for your unique situation. We can shape this legal tool so it is as limited or broad in scope as you desire. Once your power of attorney empower is in place, it will empower another person to make important health decisions on your behalf or empower you to make decisions on behalf of a loved one.
Another document known as a durable power of attorney for finances will be necessary to obtain authority over financial decisions. Our legal team is here to craft your power of attorney to ensure the agent can step in at the appropriate time to handle your affairs, whether they are financial or health-related. The clock is ticking. Your power of attorney must be created when you are of sound mind so schedule an appointment with our Harrisburg legal team as soon as possible.
Trusts are legal arrangements in which a person, referred to as the trustee, manages and maintains legal title to another person’s property (the settlor). The settlor launches the trust and adds property. A trustee administers the trust in accordance with written directions, keeping the beneficiary’s interest in mind
Living trusts are created by the settlor to manage assets across the remainder of the settlor’s life. The settlor appoints a succeeding trustee to manage the property or other assets if incapacitation occurs. Our legal team can help you create a trust to guarantee you are adequately adequately prepared for incapacitation. Once your trust is formed, you won’t have to worry about bothering with the dreaded probate process.
