What Steps Do You Need To Take Now?

Having a will is the best way to make clear your wishes about transfer of your property when you die. Our law firm can help you with this, as well as broader related questions that include:

  • Trusts — There are many different types of trusts, from revocable living trusts (RLTs) to pet trusts. Our law firm can explain the options that make sense for your family situation.
  • Living will — A living will is also known as a health care directive. It allows you to formally state your wishes regarding the medical care, so that they are known in the event that you lose the capacity to speak for yourself.
  • Power of attorney — In North Carolina, there are two common powers of attorney (POA). One is a financial power of attorney. The other is a health care power of attorney that names someone to make decisions about your medical, if you become unable to do so yourself.
