We take the time to discuss all your options, so your will can be prepared to properly reflect your wishes.
Your life is a string of days in which you make hundreds of decisions about everything from what to have for breakfast to which stocks to add to your portfolio. Making decisions is what we do to control our life and the paths and outcomes we realize. What happens when you can no longer voice what it is that you want? That is where wills come in. There are two types of wills: a living will and a last will & testament. Here at Bennett Guthrie PLLC, we prepare both of these types of wills, so you can have your estate planning wishes granted when you are no longer able to speak for yourself due to a medical condition or your passing.
Living wills are also known as an Advance Directives for a Natural Death. This document dictates your wishes about medical treatments you wish to receive or have withheld regarding end-of-life medical conditions. This document becomes effective only under certain circumstances. It is an important document for protecting your family from having to make a difficult decision not knowing what your wishes would have been.
Your last will & testament provides guidance to your family and others about final arrangements and the distribution of your assets after your death. There are many different ways in which these wills can be completed, including establishing a trust for ongoing financial support of a loved one, generally a minor child, but they can be used to support other causes, as well.
We take the time to provide you with the attention you deserve and the time needed to be certain your wills properly reflect your wishes. You can also return to us at a later date to make changes as circumstances change in your life. We are dedicated to serving our clients in the Greensboro, North Carolina area with the best possible legal services and advice.
