  • Wills: Wills are essential for everyone, not just those who have a lot of money. They are especially important if you have young children. Taking the time to draft a will allows you to determine how your assets are distributed and who will care for your children.
  • Power of attorney: A power of attorney is a document that lays out who will make financial decisions if you are unable to do so. Without a power of attorney, your loved ones will have to set up a guardianship and conservatorship through the probate court.
  • Medical power of attorney: In the state of Michigan, if you are conscious but incapable of talking or are only being kept alive by machines or feeding tubes, the courts have ruled that you must be kept alive. Appointing a medical power of attorney ensures your wishes regarding your medical care are carried out.
  • Probate: After the death of a loved one, the estate may have to be probated. This is the process of paying off debts owed to creditors and distributing your assets. We can help you navigate this sometimes complicated process.
