Lawyer For Creating A Durable Power Of Attorney

No one plans to become mentally incapacitated. Nevertheless, useful estate planning instruments such as durable powers of attorney, health care surrogates and living wills can provide insurance in case the unexpected does happen.

These important estate planning documents provide direction to your loved ones in the event that you are alive but unable to make decisions for yourself.

Regardless of your age or the size of your estate, attorneys at the Law Office of Horton & Horton, P.A., in Clermont, Florida, can be your home for personalized recommendations and honest answers to your estate planning questions. Contact our office in Clermont today.

Understanding The Benefits Of A Power Of Attorney

Through a durable power of attorney, you can name someone as an attorney-in-fact, who may make financial decisions on your behalf and eliminate any concerns about the safety of the account.

Without a durable power of attorney in place, your family could spend thousands of dollars in court to appoint a guardian on your behalf. If, for example, someone needs to handle your assets, such as the sale of your home, a court appearance would be necessary to have you declared mentally incapacitated. Meanwhile, the appointment of a guardian can also be an expensive, time-consuming and frustrating experience.

As experienced lawyers, we can explain what makes a good attorney-in-fact and provide additional information on these documents to help you make sound decisions.
