Other Estate Planning Areas

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney allows an individual to make legal decisions on behalf of another party. These documents can be used when a person is unable to appear or act for any reason, or becomes unable to make decisions for his or her self.

Pre-Nuptial Agreement

These are agreements between a couple prior to marriage that spell out their wishes about distribution of their assets should the marriage dissolve by divorce or death.

Guardianship or Conservatorship

We help individuals file petitions for guardianship or conservatorship for minors or disabled or elderly adults.

Living Wills and Health Care Surrogates

Why do I need a living will? A living will is also known as an advanced directive. It designates an individual to serve as your health care surrogate, who will make health care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. It also specifies your wishes regarding life support and food and water if you have been found to be in a terminal condition, as defined by Kentucky Statute.
