Disability Planning Lawyer in Smithtown
Take the Stress Out of Planning with the Help of an Experienced Attorney
Power of Attorney & Health Care Proxy
The Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy are written documents that allow you to choose a person to stand in your shoes and make legal, financial and health care decisions for you if you are unable to do so. Everyone over the age of 18 should have a Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy.
Without these documents, the court may need to intervene in a Guardianship proceeding and it will decide who should make decisions on your behalf. Guardianship proceedings are costly, time consuming and could result in the appointment of a Guardian that you would not want to make these important decisions on your behalf. Make sure that you choose who you want to make decisions for you, not the court.
The Living Will is a written legal document that allows you to express the medical treatment you wish to receive at the very end of your life if you want to make decisions for yourself.
By planning ahead, you can get the care you want and relieve caregivers of decision-making burdens during a time of crisis.
When To Start Planning
The goal of disability planning is to make decisions for your medical and financial future with a clear mind. So, you should start planning for your legal, financial and medical future when you are healthy and able. Avoid unnecessary stress, give yourself and your family peace of mind and plan early.
