Who will speak for you when you can't speak for yourself?

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.

You Decide


Your family doesn't have to be scared or afraid of how they're going to manage without you.

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.

  • You can choose the person you want to manage your personal, financial and medical affairs.
  • Your family can avoid the high cost of going to court to have a legal guardian appointed.
  • You can greatly reduce stress in an already intensely stressful situation.

Without a will, state law dictates who inherits your assets, who comes first, who comes last, how much they get, and who will get nothing at all.

If what you want to happen is different from what state laws says, then you can change all of that with a will.

  • You can decide who gets what after you die.
  • You can protect your current spouse.
  • You can name a particular person to care for your minor children. 
  • You can leave something extra to someone special, perhaps a godchild, niece, nephew, cousin or spouse.
  • You can choose who will be in charge of wrapping up your final affairs.

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.
