Our Estate Planning Services 

The attorneys at William Kirby Law, Family Law Attorneys can help clients draft the following types of estate planning documents: 

  • Wills and trusts. We can help you outline how you wish your assets to be handled, who will manage your affairs, and express your final wishes. 
  • Power of Attorney. A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that lets you designate someone, called an agent, to act on your behalf. This can be helpful for situations where you're unable to make decisions for yourself, like traveling for an extended period or experiencing illness. The agent's authority can be broad, encompassing finances and property, or limited to specific tasks. There are also different POA types, with some remaining valid even if you become incapacitated. Our attorneys can talk through which POAs you may need based on your specific situation. 
  • Advance directives. Advance directives are legal documents incorporated into estate plans to ensure your wishes for medical care are followed if you become unable to communicate them yourself.  This can happen due to illness, injury, or unconsciousness.  By outlining your preferences for treatments, like life support or artificial hydration, advance directives give your loved ones guidance on making difficult medical decisions and honoring your values.

Why Is It Important to Have an Estate Plan? 

Estate planning is a crucial step, often overlooked, that ensures your wishes are carried out after your passing. Without a plan in place, state laws dictate the distribution of your assets, potentially leading to unintended outcomes and delays. An estate plan offers a multitude of benefits.

Estate Planning Is Essential for Young Adults 

Estate planning is often seen as a concern for older adults, but young adults can benefit greatly from having a basic plan in place. While you may not have a vast estate, even young adults have valuable assets and loved ones to consider. 

Here's why estate planning shouldn't be put off until later in life:

  • Peace of mind. An estate plan ensures your wishes are known in the event of your unexpected passing. This can prevent confusion and conflict among family members during a difficult time.
  • Protecting loved ones. If you have minor children, an estate plan allows you to designate a guardian who will care for them in your absence. You can also establish a trust to manage assets intended for their future education or well-being.
  • Beyond belongings. Estate planning isn't just about physical possessions. It also allows you to appoint someone you trust to make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated. This is crucial for ensuring your wishes are respected regarding your healthcare.
  • Life changes. Life throws curveballs. Marriages, partnerships, and children all impact your estate. A basic plan allows for easy updates to reflect these changes and ensure your wishes remain clear.
  • Simpler process. You shouldn’t let fear of the complexity of the process stop you. Estate planning for young adults typically doesn't require complex documents. A basic will, a healthcare directive, and a financial power of attorney can be sufficient. Consulting with an estate planning attorney can help tailor a plan to your specific needs.
