Give your family a precious gift - stop putting off preparing an estate plan. Dealing with a serious medical condition or death in the family is very traumatic. Don't add to the difficulty your family will experience by burdening them with the issues of managing or disposing of your estate. Even at age 18, married or single, there are things you should do to prepare for an emergency or an untimely death. Did you know that the hospital cannot tell your family, friends or pastor/priest you are a patient without your authorization? Are you traveling out of state or out of the country and leaving your children with family? Do you have a Power of Attorney prepared in case they need to take the child to the hospital? Are you ready if you become incapacitated? Who will pay your bills and take care of your property? Have you legally protected yourself and your loved ones? What will happen to your property after your death? Married or single, you can protect your assets for the loved ones. If you have a business, it is very important to have succession planning in place in case of an emergency. Even if your incapacitation is short, your absence could cripple your business. Everyone needs to prepare for the events of life from a short term incapacitation to death.

So many people think they have time to do this later in life, but you just never know when you might be in an accident, be diagnosed with a serious medical condition or when your time on this earth is over. Just because you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s or 50s does not mean that you don't need to make estate planning a priority. The next excuse to put off this responsibility is that going to an attorney will be expensive and time consuming. Not so. We can work with your budget to provide you affordable estate planning. Not everyone needs to have extensive documents drawn or a full blown trust. We can start off with the basics and move on to any additional documents that would be appropriate for you and your family.
The most common estate planning documents are as follows:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Living Trust
  • Power of Attorney
  • Medical Power of Attorney
  • Beneficiary Deed
  • Transfer upon Death (TOD)
  • HIPPA release forms

The First thing you should do is to execute a HIPPA release form for each and every loved one who you would want to be notified if you were in the hospital. The HIPPA laws are so strict anymore that the hospital cannot even release information that you are a patient without your permission. If you are incapacitated in any way, your friends and family members might not be able to find out any information concerning your condition or care. The following form was prepared by the Missouri Bar Association and is FREE. Print it off now and sign it. HIPPA RELEASE Congratulations, you have taken your first step in your estate plan.
