After over a decade helping families plan their estates with our simple to use forms, we are now offering a LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE, which includes all the essential guides and documents. Never before have we offered such a great value at such a reasonable price.
Planning your estate is extremely important, regardless of your age or wealth. Without an estate plan, unexpected life events such as an accident, illness, or death, can involve much more burden, expense, and delay than necessary. An already stressful event may turn into a nightmare, with unintended consequences. Luckily, estate planning forms can prevent a disaster, and minimize the headaches you and your loved ones will face if an unfortunate event occurs.
Estate Planning Basics
Our LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE is a top quality package, that's been designed by attorneys to comply with the laws of your state. In addition to our easy to follow estate planning guide and helpful worksheets, this package includes the indispensable legal forms you should have on your estate planning checklist. The LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE includes the following:
Last Will and Testament
Did you know your family may need to go to court if you die without a Last Will and Testament in place? A Last Will and Testament is a vital part of your estate plan. Some people think that you don't need one unless you have significant assets. However, even something as simple as a home or a car could be come a contested battle. A Last Will helps ensure your wishes are respected when passing your property onto heirs. Without a Will, state probate laws of intestacy will be used to distribute your assets and sentimental heirlooms. This can cause property to go to unintended beneficiaries, and lead to family conflict. Your estate tax may also be significantly reduced by properly drafting a will. Even if you don't have many assets, a will is the only way to ensure that your final wishes will be heard. There's no need to worry though, our exclusive LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE includes this attorney-reviewed Last Will and Testament, including these additional provisions:
- Appointment of a guardian for children or dependents.
- Your wishes for burial, cremation, or anatomical donation, and instructions for final services.
- Creation of a testamentary trust, which can manage assets after your death according to your instructions, rather than distributing them outright. This can be advantageous when you have young heirs who are too immature to manage an inheritance. The trustee may manage the assets until the heir reaches a certain age, or distribute assets over time, according to the conditions you specify.
Power of Attorney
Your LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE also includes this important document. Estate planning law allows you to use this legal form to appoint an agent to carry out your needs. This is essential if you became incapacitated. Your agent can sign papers and take necessary actions for you when you're unable to attend to matters personally. This form is used to avoid the expensive and time-consuming court process of creating a guardianship. Smart probate estate planning requires the completion of this critical form.
Multiple forms of a Power Of Attorney are included in this exclusive LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE:
- You may be wondering "what is a durable power of attorney". This type of POA form stays effective even after you become incapacitated. A nondurable form will be voided if you're mentally or physically incapacitated, and can't effectively make decisions or sign papers on your own.
- A financial power of attorney can be used to handle banking and related matters. For example, it can be used to write and deposit checks, so that your rent, mortgage, and other important bills can continue to be paid on time.
- A general power of attorney can grant authority for a broad range of subject matters. Its use can also be confined to the time periods and/or circumstances you describe.
Our LIFE PLANNING PACKAGE also includes this essential form. It expresses your medical treatment and life support preferences, so they can be followed if you're unable to communicate. This form is often confused with a Last Will and Testament. However, a Living Will form deals only with carrying out your medical care preferences while you're still alive. Leaving clear written guidelines for others to follow will save unnecessary anguish and legal wrangling for your family and loved ones during an already stressful situation.
These online legal forms are governed by state laws, which vary by state. Our package will be delivered with your state-specific versions. In some states, it may be called a medical health care advance directive. Many states also allow the appointment of a medical power of attorney to deal with care providers on your behalf, and see that your stated preferences are carried out.
A living will form is simple to fill out. You don't need any medical expertise. You just check or initial the appropriate options, and may include any special instructions you wish to add before signing the form. Printable living will forms can be used to specify your preferences for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), artificial hydration and nutrition, pain medication, dialysis, anatomical donation, visitors, and more.
We don't like to think about what will happen if an unfortunate event occurs. The essential online legal forms in this package can make sure that if it does, you'll have the peace of mind of knowing that you're prepared. You've ensured that the negative consequences will be minimized, and your intentions and preferences can be carried out as you wish. It's important to reduce the cost and delay of court proceedings, as well as the hardship endured by your family and loved ones.
