Planning for the future is never easy, especially in thinking ahead when you are no longer around your loved ones.
Assuring their well-being after you are gone can be one of the most important and comforting decisions of your life. Our estate planning attorneys at Arellano Law Firm PC will be there to help in the complex decision-making every step of the way.
Plan for the worst. Find some peace of mind knowing your loved ones will be taken care of financially when you cannot provide support.
Our estate planning lawyers can guide you in the entire estate planning process from advance directives, creating living trusts and wills, distribution of assets to beneficiaries, and more. Formalities of necessary estate planning legal documents can vary from state to state. In the state of Oregon, your living will is required to be written and signed by the testator (subject of the will) and two witnesses.
To ensure your assets are put into the right hands, all formalities of the will must be reviewed in-depth by your attorney. Attorneys at Arellano Law Firm have decades of legal experience in estate planning and will make sure your specific concerns and questions are addressed. We’ll help you properly understand each step of the process when creating your will.
If you or your loved one has a history of medical complications or wants to plan for the unexpected, we can help create your medical advance directives. Not knowing how to react to a medical emergency appropriately can be stressful, but legally binding directives can allow you to make those decisions before they happen.
In addition to appointing an advance directive for those unplanned scenarios, it’s advisable to create a power of attorney (POA) document. A Power of Attorney document legally authorizes another person to handle your financial matters, take care of family and other loved ones, or make critical medical decisions on your behalf. We understand these discussions can be difficult, and yet they are necessary. Arellano Law Firm can be there to help guide, comfort, and give you and your family peace of mind.
