Planning Well for Any Eventuality

Estate planning is not a one-and-done thing. To manage your affairs thoroughly, you need to cover all bases. So, aside from planning the distribution of your assets, you also need to prepare for medical emergencies.

As we grow old, our health and mental condition will eventually deteriorate. A single accident or health emergency can lead to incapacitation.

If you have clear plans about the kind of medical treatments you would want to receive, you must write these down in a Health Care Directive. That way, you can decide in advance which life-prolonging treatments you would want to receive in case you are incapacitated. Your family will not be in limbo, contemplating what is best for you when the time comes. Contact Anthoor Law Group today to speak with our experienced Bay Area Health Care Directive attorney.

How We Can Help

Our Bay Area Health Care Directive attorney can assess your situation and take note of your preferences to come up with a comprehensive estate planning strategy. Aside from Health Care Directives, the team at Anthoor Law Group can handle the following:

  • Financial Powers of Attorney
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Special Needs Trust
  • Guardianship

What Is Covered in a Health Care Directive?

A Health Care Directive is a legal document where you authorize a person to make medical decisions in case you are incapacitated. You can also specify the kind of decisions that your representative is authorized to make.

Depending on your plans, you can also authorize that person to be in charge of post-death arrangements. These include organ donations and burial instructions. Our experienced Bay Area Health Care Directive attorney can help you draft a Directive that would address your personal health care plans and wishes.

Living Will and Health Care Directive: Are They the Same?

Living Wills and Advance Health Care Directives can sometimes be combined within a single document. Many provisions in a Living Will can also be written in a Health Care Directive. These include provisions for life-prolonging procedures and even post-death arrangements. But these two documents are not essentially the same. The main difference is that you cannot appoint an agent or health care proxy in a Living Will. This can only be done through a Health Care Directive. If you are not sure what is best for you, contact the team at Anthoor Law Group attorney to learn more.

Wills or Trusts: Do You Still Need Them?

When it comes to estate planning, an Advance Health Care Directive is not enough. You also need a Will or Trust to put your affairs in order. A Health Care Directive only contains plans and instructions related to medical care and treatments. If you have specific plans regarding the distribution of your assets, you need a Will or Trust for that.

Our experienced attorneys at Anthoor Law Group can point out estate planning strategies that best suit your plans and circumstances.

The Risks of Having No Health Care Directive

Without an Advance Health Care Directive, crucial medical and health care decisions may require a Conservatorship, in which case the courts will appoint someone. The person the courts appoint may not be someone you would prefer to make such important decisions, and this requirement can add significant delays that can negatively affect your health outlook.

If you would rather choose a health care proxy to make medical decisions when you are incapacitated, then you have to prepare an Advance Health Care Directive. For that, our Bay Area Health Care Directive attorney is always ready to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
