Wills & Trusts
A will dictates who will carry out the administration of your estate and how assets or property are bequeathed. Bucks County wills are handled by the Bucks County Register of Wills before being turned over to Orphan’s Court. A trust determines what, when, how and where gifts or property will be distributed to heirs or beneficiaries. Our experienced Bucks County estate attorneys help clients understand their estate and ways to manage it in the future.
Final Wish Requests
Final wish requests formalize certain reasons and specifications you may have with respect to memorial services. Location of the service, religious provisions and other details are established in this document.
Also known as an advance directive, a living will dictates how your health is managed in the event that you are unable to communicate. Any choices with respect to treatment plans or life support are established with this document. You will maintain control over major decisions following a traumatic or life threatening event as it is legally binding on medical professionals.
Power of Attorney
Power of attorney is the legal right of a person to make decisions for another. It is the establishment of a principal/agent relationship for making decisions from the sale of property to medical decisions.
Prenuptial agreements are not often associated with estate planning; however, with second marriages becoming more common, the familial changes and complexities should be addressed. Leaving certain estate matters unchanged upon entry into a new marriage may lead to confusion and family feuds.
