How Advanced Directives Can Help You
No one likes to plan for the unfortunate and unexpected, but it is sometimes necessary to avoid putting yourself and loved ones in difficult situations. Advanced directives put you in control of making vital decisions and help to avoid expensive and unnecessary legal proceedings such as guardianship proceedings and Do Not Resuscitate proceedings.
There are a variety of options to address your needs, including:
- Medical Advanced Directive - You can appoint an agent and make your health care wishes be known through a medical power of attorney, directive to physician / living will, designation of guardian and HIPAA release.
- Financial / Business Advanced Directives - You can appoint an agent for financial decisions through a statutory durable power of attorney or a special power of attorney for limited purposes.
Attorney Stephanie Mudgett Boates will help you decide which person in your life is best suited to serve as your appointed medical or financial/business agent.
