Helping Our Clients Plan For The Future
Making your end-of-life financial arrangements is never pleasant to think about. However, the sooner you make these arrangements, the sooner you can have peace of mind. Your family and other loved ones deserve the security of a legally sound estate plan.
Since 1999, Scott Law Group has helped clients throughout the Kernersville and metro areas to plan their legacies through wills, trusts, and other tools. Our attorneys have in-depth conversations with you to determine your goals and develop the strategies to achieve them. Managing partner Robert G. Scott also administers estates and wills. From passing your assets to the next generation to avoiding probate, our team provides the personalized solutions you and your family need.
What Elements Should My Estate Plan Include?
Every good estate plan will have a few elements:
- Last will and testament: This document identifies beneficiaries and stipulates which assets should pass to whom when you die.
- Power of attorney: If you become incapacitated or pass away, a power of attorney grants someone you love the ability to handle your legal and financial affairs.
- Health care power of attorney: Your health care proxy (the person you designate as your attorney in fact) is someone who can make decisions about your medical care if you are temporarily unable to or no can longer speak for yourself.
- Health care directive (living will): When you can no longer communicate, a health care directive informs your doctors and loved ones about your health care wishes regarding life support. Help prevent confusion and disagreements when you can no longer communicate with your loved ones.
Your financial situation and health care needs are unique. Your estate plan should be, too. We will tailor these tools to suit you personally.
