Many people believe that having a will or power of attorney is for the elderly. Realistically, this type of planning protects your assets and investments should be started as early as possible and can then be modified or changed later, if needed. If you were in an accident that lead to death or a serious injury, where you were unable to voice or make decisions for yourself, who would make these decisions for you? Who will be managing your care, money, property, and family matters?
Both situations of death and injury bring chaos and complication. Having documents in place clearly define what you want can ease stress during this difficult time, while also assuring you that your wishes will be carried out.
There are many different facets and reasons that a person may need legal assistance relating to a guardianship matter. Guardianships offer protection to those in need. Whether the situation calls for you to file a petition to protect another person or person’s property, the attorneys at Teddy, Meekins, and Talbert are here to walk you through every part of the guardianship process.
We are able to assist a person that is an appointed guardian with fillings and bonding, help defend the person that was served with an incompetency petition, or assist in seeking restoration of rights when one can resume handing his/her affairs. For more information about guardianships or to discuss your specific legal needs, please contact an attorney at Teddy, Meekins, and Talbert today!
Having a financial power of attorney allows you to name a person, bank, or trust, to make decisions on your behalf regarding legal or financial matters, in the event that you are not able to make them. Having this document drafted may save you and those involved from spending time and resources in the absence of a financial power of attorney.
Please contact our firm today to discuss the importance of a financial power of attorney and how it can help you with your planning.
In the event of an accident, having a health care power of attorney to make decisions based on your best interest can be crucial.
