If you suddenly become physically or mentally disabled, without a power of attorney in place your family is almost certainly going to have difficulty managing your health care and personal affairs. They may even have to bear the expense of going to court to start interdiction proceedings and a judge will decide who will be your legal guardian.
Do you know who inherits from you if you die without a will? It's probably not who you think, and it might not be the person you would have chosen.
If you know who you want to handle your affairs, put it into writing so that other people will know whom you have chosen. Get your powers of attorney prepared.
If what you want to happen is different from what state laws says, then you can change all of that with a will.
Having a will gives you and your family peace of mind and helps to ensure that your wishes are carried out when something finally happens to you.
DON'T WAIT UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE! Too many families seek help right when they are in the middle of a crisis. That's too late! Perhaps you know somebody who suddenly became ill and their spouse or children had a hard time handling business because there were no powers of attorney. I know you've already heard about somebody who died and their family was arguing over property and money. If you don’t want that to happen to your family also, then get these important documents done now - before it's too late to get help.
