Wills and Trusts in Adams County, PA
Wills and trusts provide clear instructions for the distribution of your assets when you pass away. If you don’t have a will or trust in place, your family may be shortchanged by state laws and regulations. Additionally, malevolent individuals may try and access your assets and interfere with your wishes.
Through a will, you can distribute cash, shares, houses, heirlooms, individual items, and any other form of property. Although the will is an excellent way to secure your family’s future, you will need a trust if you want to reduce estate tax exposure. It’s true that trusts provide less autonomy to your heirs, but trusts protect assets and speed up the inheritance process.
You can also use trusts to outline specific intentions. For example, if you don’t want someone to inherit all your money at once, your trust can release the funds in stages. Additionally, the trust can be set aside for specific purposes, such as buying a home or paying for college.
Financial Power of Attorney in Adams County, PA
If you become incapacitated, you won’t be able to make financial decisions or transactions on your own behalf. Nominating someone to make these decisions in your place is an excellent way to protect your economic interests in the case of an emergency. A Financial Power of Attorney document provides these assurances.
You can rest assured that someone can act on your behalf if you become incapacitated. At Bellomo & Associates, we can help you appoint a trusted loved one as your Financial Power of Attorney.

Health Care Representatives and Living Wills in Adams County, PA
While many individuals focus on wills and trusts, it’s also critical to consider your health when you’re planning your estate. Appointing a Health Care Representative can help you protect yourself from unwanted health actions. Your Health Care Representative will act on your behalf to make health decisions that suit your interests.
Most people choose loved ones they can trust to act as Health Care Representatives. While this might seem like an obvious choice, it’s critical to designate someone specifically through legal documents – otherwise, your chosen person might encounter legal challenges when trying to act on your behalf.
Alternatively, you can choose to create a living will that dictates specific health requests if you become incapacitated. If you don’t wish to receive particular treatments, this can be dictated in your living will, also called an advanced directive. You can provide clear instructions to loved ones and health professionals about the kind of care you’re willing to receive.
If you need assistance understanding living wills or Health Care Representatives, we can help you determine which option is most suitable for your preferences. We’ve helped numerous Adams County residents protect their health using strong legal documents.
