An Overview of Estate Planning in Maryland
A will is a foundational estate planning document. Every adult in Maryland should have a professionally drafted will in place. If you have young children or a considerable amount of assets, it is even more important that you write a will. Among other things, your will should appoint a trusted party to serve as the executor (administrator) of your estate.
As important as it is to have a will, it is not always the best way to transfer your property and assets to your heirs. In fact, in many cases, setting up a trust offers a more effective and efficient solution. If you are considering setting up a trust for your children, your loved ones, or a charity, our experienced Maryland trust planning attorneys can help.
- Powers of Attorney
You need to be prepared for the possibility that you could become incapacitated or otherwise unable to tend to your own financial and legal affairs. While it is uncomfortable to think about, it is incredibly important. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to appoint a trusted, capable person as your power of attorney. When set up properly, a POA will give another person the authority that they need to make legal or financial decisions on your behalf.
- Medical Directives
Finally, if you have specific wishes regarding your own medical care, it is crucial that you put an advance medical directive in place. If you fail to do so, your wishes may not be carried out by loved ones or healthcare providers. Our Maryland estate planning lawyers can help you create a legally enforceable medical directive.
