Last will and testament
A last will and testament is a legal document that directs distribution of your wealth and assets upon your death. Regardless of your age, it is always a good idea to have a will prepared. The absence of a will can result in many unintended consequences and disputes that lead to probate litigation. Let Meng Law help you create a valid will.
You can put some or all of your property into trust during your lifetime. Some of the benefits of a living trust are:
- Avoidance of probate
- Clear instructions about how your money should be used
- Preservation of your assets for your beneficiaries
Meng Law helps you determine whether a living trust is right for you.
Power of attorney
One way to avoid the need for a guardianship in the future is to create a power of attorney. You authorize another person to take responsibility for your:
- Property and finances, effective upon disability
- Property and finances, effective immediately
- Finances only
- Specific matters that you name
Mr. Meng and Ms. Mitchell will help you select an appropriate attorney in fact and create a power of attorney for yourself, or obtain a power of attorney that allows you to care for another person.
Maryland financial powers of attorney generally do not cover health care issues. To ensure that your wishes about medical treatment will be known and followed, you can create an advance directive in which you make very specific decisions about many medical scenarios. You also appoint a health care agent to enforce those decisions.
