A common misperception exists that estate planning is only needed by individuals who are financially well-off. The Pearce Law Group, P.C. wants you to know estate planning should be important to everyone regardless of their financial station in life. A baseline estate planning package should include a last will and testament, a durable power of attorney form, and a desire for nature death / living will form.

Your estate plan and last will and testament sets how your assets will be preserved, managed and distributed after death. Your last will and testament tells those you left behind how you want those assets handled and distributed. Typical assets include your cars, stocks, artwork, life insurance, pensions, houses, jewelry and yes, your debt. You can direct these to your surviving spouse, children, grandchildren or charitable organizations.

Your durable power of attorney controls who can act on your behalf if you become incapacitated. In many instances, this document is equally important to your last will and testament as it appoints an agent to act on your behalf and make critical personal and business decisions for you while you recovery from an accident or illness.

Your desire for nature death / living will form is a statutorily recognized document that allows you to inform your loved ones how you want your end of live decisions handled. When addressed properly, desire for nature death / living will form can be on of the greatest ‘gifts’ you can give your loved one’s by providing them with clear directions as to your end of life medical care and providing them with the documentation to enforce those wishes with medical providers, other relatives, etc.

The Pearce Law Group, P.C. helps you organize your life by explaining to you the impact of each decision in your estate plan. We also work to ensure your estate plan complies with South Carolina laws if it was originally prepared in another state or country.
