We would all love to be able to predict the future. Until there are some crazy technological advancements, though, the most we can do is try to plan for it. At Dellutri Law Group in Fort Myers, we help our clients plan for their futures by creating comprehensive estate plans – today.

For right now, an estate plan is the closest thing we have to a crystal ball, so let’s use it to the best of our abilities!

Call (800) 391-4337 to talk about estate planning with our attorneys today.

Must-Have Estate Planning Documents

An estate plan is comprised of several legal documents or tools that let you and your family plan for the future. Every estate plan is unique because everyone’s future plans are unique, too. Your wishes, the value of your estate, and your medical necessities will determine what needs to go into your estate plan, among other things.

What estate planning tools do you need to make your estate plan work? Let us figure that out for you.

Five estate planning documents that are in nearly every estate plan are:

  1. Designation of healthcare surrogate: This document allows you to give someone the authority to make important healthcare decisions in your name when you cannot make them yourself. You should name someone who is local, so they are never far if an important decision has to be made in an emergency.
  2. Power of attorney: With a power of attorney, you can give someone the authority to make nonmedical decisions for you and take over some of your responsibilities. For example, you can use a power of attorney to let a family member manage your financial decisions when you are incapacitated.
  3. Living will: Planning for the future is not always a fun conversation. A living will decides what lifesaving measures should be taken in a medical emergency and how long to keep you in a vegetative state if needed. We can sit down with you to discuss these important yet uncomfortable choices.
  4. Last will and testament: After you pass away, a last will and testament can be used to instruct your loved ones about how to manage your estate and assets, such as who will inherit what pieces of your property. With a comprehensive will in place, your family will have an easier time navigating the legal landscape when you are no longer around. If you do not want to make a will for yourself, then make it to benefit your loved ones.
  5. Revocable trust: Trusts are used to hold your assets and provide them with certain legal protections. To avoid lengthy probate proceedings – the legal process of examining an estate and will – many people place their most important assets in different trusts, like a revocable trust.
