As Peace Officers, Military Personnel, and Firefighters, you have taken on the role of protector for hundreds, possibly thousands of people. Every day you put yourself on the line for people you have never met. But at the end of the day, the people who are really counting on you are your family, friends, and loved ones. Have you made sure that THOSE people are protected?
Most of us don’t make decisions about our futures for a variety of reasons; we don’t want to think about it; we don’t think anything will happen to us; we don’t think we need to. The reality is that every day that we leave our futures up to chance, we are not risking our future, but the futures of our loved ones. The best time to make a plan is now, BEFORE you actually NEED one.
Have you thought about who will make health care decisions for you if you are injured and unable to speak for yourself? Do you know who that would be right now if you haven’t appointed someone? Is that person who you would choose for yourself if you had the chance? Maybe, but maybe not: and that is why you need to make your wishes known BEFORE anything happens.
Do you know how the Probate process works if something were to happen to you? Although many people have wills, a will does not protect your family from the financial hardships of Probate. Submitting a will to Probate can cost TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars, even if it is a simple, uncontested Probate. Do you want to subject your loved ones to this potential expense, or would you like to learn about another way to protect your loved ones and assets?
The best way to protect your family from the financial, legal, and emotional pitfalls of injury, old age, senility, or death is with a comprehensive Living Trust. Our offices can help you to protect your assets, set up trusts to fund your children’s education, provide for support to a disabled loved one, designate your agent(s) to act on your behalf in financial and medical situations if you are unable, avoid a lengthy and expensive probate, and put your mind at ease about the future. We can even help you to establish trusts to take care of your pets!
