Planning for one’s death may be one of the least enjoyable responsibilities that comes from the accumulation of monetary wealth. Many men and women neglect to prepare a will — even well into their senior years. Those who do, however, often find comfort in the assurance that their wishes will be respected when their time comes.
For your intentions to be made known, it is important to outline them in a legal document such as a will or trust. Georgia inheritance law can be tricky, however, so it is helpful to seek the guidance of a skilled lawyer when preparing a will. Your will attorney can assess your needs and create the right combination of documents and directives, including:
- A simple will: Specifying your wishes concerning your family, possessions or business in the event of your death
- A living will: Specifying your wishes about certain medical procedures if you are incapacitated
- A power of attorney: Specifying someone to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so
