Hot Springs, Arkansas Estate Planning Lawyers
Clearly drafted wills that preserve your intentions
Who will speak for you when you cannot speak for yourself? Perhaps you are responsible for a minor child. Or you feel blessed to be surrounded by a loving family and wish to express your gratitude. Or you have concerns about the type and quality of medical care you would like to receive if you become seriously ill. At Wood, Schnipper & Britton, our Hot Springs wills lawyers draft clear and explicit documents that memorialize your instructions for a variety of issues, including:
- Guardianship — expresses your preferences for the person(s) who will care for your minor children
- Last will —- allows you to pass worldly possessions on to your heirs in the manner you choose
- Living Will —instructs caregivers on the types of medical intervention you will accept to keep you alive
- Durable Power of attorney —allows someone whom you trust to make decisions for your health and welfare, especially in the area of finance, should you become incapacitated
- Medical power of attorney — allows someone whom you trust to decide on the medical care you will receive should you become incapacitated
As your estate planning lawyer in Hot Springs, our first task is to learn as much as we can about you and your relationships to your loved ones. We then take a complete inventory of your assets. Working closely with you, we identify your major concerns and restructure your assets accordingly. Then we compose the legal documents, using precise language to ensure that your intentions are understood and that nothing can prevent their implementation. Finally, we review your documents with you before you sign to ensure you fully understand the ramifications and are comfortable with the results.
Signing a will and other testamentary documents should give you great peace of mind, but as time passes, your circumstances may change. An heir may pass from the picture, or someone new may enter your life. You may find yourself richer or poorer, depending on variables such as your investments and your health. We believe it is good practice to review your estate plan periodically to ensure that it reflects your current desires. You may decide a combination of trusts now suits your needs better than your current will. We can help with revisions that are legally sound and can survive probate litigation.
