Glen Allen Estate Planning Attorney
One can never be sure what changes life will bring. Farmer Legal can help you plan for the future and plan for the unexpected so that you will be prepared for any eventuality, knowing that you and your family will be taken care of and provided for according to your wishes. We provide comprehensive estate planning in Glen Allen and communities throughout central and southwest Virginia, focusing on the right combination of wills, trusts and powers of attorney to meet your needs.
Virginia Wills & Trusts Attorney
Every estate needs a will to direct where property will go, make specific gifts, name an executor of the estate, and name a guardian for minor children. For some people, a will is all that is needed to handle the distribution of the entire estate. Others may need one or more trusts to fully meet their goals. Revocable living trusts and other types of trusts allow you to transfer property outside of probate to save the time and expense of estate administration, while also providing significant tax benefits to you and your beneficiaries. At Farmer Legal, we take the time to sit down with you and learn about your present situation and future goals, so that we can best advise you of your options. We draft all of your estate planning documents with diligence and precision so that they will be easy to understand and effective when they are needed.
Powers of Attorney and Advance Medical Directives
Estate planning is more than just deciding how your property will be distributed after you are gone. A comprehensive estate plan will also include documents which provide for the management of your health care and financial affairs in the event you ever become incapacitated, either physically or mentally, and cannot care for yourself independently or cannot communicate your wishes effectively. We draft powers of attorney and advance medical directives such as Advance Healthcare Directives and living wills so that your loved ones and healthcare providers will understand and carry out your wishes. With a power of attorney, you can appoint a person you know and trust to manage your affairs while you are unable to do so. The alternative is for a court to impose a conservatorship on you and appoint a stranger from the bank to manage your money, while your family members are left to figure out what your wishes would be during a difficult, emotional time.
