Compassionate Michigan Estate Planning Attorney Helping Families Plan for the Future
Planning for the future is an important part of ensuring that your family will be taken care of after your passing. Many people prefer not to think about what might happen in the event of their death, and as a result, put off estate planning. However, without an adequate plan in place, your assets could be distributed in a manner against your wishes, or tied up in probate court for months or even years. It is critical to plan now.
Experienced Guidance Through All Aspects of Estate Planning
At Rebeck Law, P.C., attorney Chelsea Rebeck has the expertise and resources needed to confidently guide you through each aspect of estate planning. She can help you with the following:
Estate Planning Packages
Attorney Rebeck offers a variety of estate planning packages for individuals wishing to get the help they need at a flat rate, without surprises or additional fees.
Wills & Living Wills
A will is a document that specifies your wishes after your passing. A living will is similar, however, it specifies your wishes regarding your medical care in the event that you become incapacitated and unable to communicate your desires. Rebeck Law, P.C. can help you set up both a will and a living will that ensures your wishes are clearly outlined.
Power of Attorney
“Power of attorney” authorizes someone to make legal and financial decisions for another person, usually in the event that they are unable to do so for themselves. Some matters that require a power of attorney can be complex, and Attorney Rebeck can assist you in navigating through these issues.
A trust is a financial arrangement that allows a person, called a trustee, to keep assets on behalf of a beneficiary or multiple beneficiaries. Trusts can be highly beneficial in certain situations, and Rebeck Law, P.C. can help you determine if a trust is right for your unique needs.
A healthcare proxy is much like a power of attorney, however, their ability to make decisions for another individual is limited to medical care. Designating a healthcare proxy now can be helpful in the future should you become incapacitated and unable to name your own healthcare proxy at that time. If you need to designate a healthcare proxy or find yourself in a situation where you need to become a healthcare proxy, Attorney Rebeck can assist you.
Probate is the process of officially validating an individual’s will. However, probate court tends to be lengthy, expensive, and complex, especially in cases where a decedent’s will has been contested. Any time probate is in the picture, it is critical to have experienced legal representation on your side.
