Power Of Attorney Puts Your Important Decisions Into Legal Documents
Establishing power of attorney is commonly referred to as an advance directive. It provides you with a means to clearly state your wishes regarding financial decisions and lifesaving medical measures in the event that you become incapacitated and cannot make these decisions on your own.
At Janssen Law, PLC, in Des Moines, attorney Dallas Janssen incorporates powers of attorney for health care and financial matters into the comprehensive estate plans that he develops for his clients in Polk County and across central Iowa.
An estate plan that was created a few years ago may no longer reflect your wishes. Mr. Janssen can review an existing estate plan and amend the power of attorney or any other component to ensure that your wishes are current. Contact the firm to schedule a meeting.
Help Your Loved Ones Make The Right Decisions
You may have definite opinions about the level of lifesaving medical care you wish to receive if you are injured or become seriously ill. Similarly, certain financial decisions may be necessary at a time when you are no longer of sound mind to make them. If you do not leave clear instructions and fail to designate a health care proxy or someone who has the authority to make financial decisions on your behalf, your loved ones will have to navigate complex legal proceedings to make these decisions for you. If you’ve established power of attorney, your loved ones will be assured that your wishes are being followed.
