This directive gives your named agents the power to make medical decisions, sign consents and/or releases with hospitals.
A trustee takes legal ownership of the assets held by a trust and assumes fiduciary responsibility for managing those assets and carrying out the purposes of the trust.
Without a Will, your estate will be divided in probate court, meaning someone else decides how your estate is divided.
Our will package includes: a Will, General Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, HIPAA Waiver.
A will doesn’t mean your heirs avoid probate. They still need to go through the court system to have the will reviewed and confirmed as valid.
Our office provides along with the trust: a will, general power of attorney, health care directive, and a HIPAA authorization and waiver. To find out more about what is provided, you can contact our office at 559-323-9400.
A living trust does not complicate the management of your assets. While protecting your property within a living trust, you can do whatever you can do now with your assets and property.
