Drafting Powers of Attorney in Lancaster

Antelope Valley Estate Planning Lawyers

Have you ever considered what may happen if you become incapacitated or you are unable to make choices for yourself or your family? Who would take responsibility? Tasks such medical decisions, paying taxes, and financial decisions still need to be handled in a timely matter, even if you are unable to do so directly. In these circumstances, you and your family have an option – a durable power of attorney.

Powers of attorney are legal documents that are drafted and signed to allow a trusted person to act on your behalf in the event that you are unable to. These documents can be crucial to your future and your family’s wellbeing. An experienced Lancaster estate planning lawyer from Thompson | VonTungeln A.P.C. can help.

How a Power of Attorney Can Help

When you work with our firm to draft a power of attorney, we will discuss the specifics of the contract and determine who should act on your behalf when you are unavailable to. The individual named to hold the power of attorney could be anyone from your spouse to your parent or a child over 18. The individual will then be able to act on your behalf in all responsibilities you cannot.

These responsibilities can include:

  • Paying regular bills
  • Filing and paying taxes
  • Determining medical care for you or minor children
  • Undertaking business matters
  • Decisions regarding legal family issues

Powers of attorney work in your favor in the event that you are incapacitated through injury or illness. These documents are not permanent, can expire, and there are various circumstances that can change a power of attorney, such as death or the individual named being unable to perform their duties.
