A Will, also called a “Last Will and Testament” is a legal document that states your final wishes. In other words, a Will is the document by which you dictate ‘who receives what’ of your estate (ie. your assets).
A Will is one of the most important documents every adult should have.
Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney are legal documents that delegate your decision making authority to someone else.
There are two kinds: (1) a Power of Attorney for Property that deals with decisions relating to your finances, property, and real estate; and (2) a Power of Attorney for Personal Care that deals with health care decisions.
An Estate Administration is the process by which your wishes, as stated in your Will, are carried out. Sometimes this requires getting a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee.
Shanti Estate Law can assist with simply getting a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee and/or with other aspects of an Estate Administration.
