We Can Protect Your Assets
Many people have misconceptions about asset protection. There is confusion
about what you can keep, what you must sell, which types of assets are
protected, gifts you can make, and whether
trusts will or won’t protect your home. While some seniors want to pass
the majority of their assets to their children and grandchildren after
they die, many elderly individuals are also interested in protecting their
home and assets in case they are ever incapacitated.
Power of Attorney
Power of attorney is a legal arrangement in which one person grants another
person the authority to make legally binding decisions on their behalf.
The person granting power of attorney can decide what type of decisions
the attorney-in-fact can make regarding healthcare or business-related
matters. If you want to draft a power of attorney, it’s crucial
that you fully trust the person to whom you're granting this authority.
Contact our law firm today to discuss any of the following types of power
Limited Power of Attorney: Used to grant limited authority in a single transaction, such as a real
estate deal. A limited power of attorney automatically terminates once
the transaction is complete.
Durable Power of Attorney: Unlike a limited power of attorney, a durable power of attorney doesn’t
automatically expire, however, the principal can dissolve it at any time.
A durable power of attorney also isn’t restricted to a single transaction
and covers a broader subject matter, such as medical decisions you want
in certain situations.
Springing Power of Attorney: With this arrangement, the power of attorney doesn’t go into effect
until a specified event occurs, such as incapacity or disability.
