The Wills and Trusts division also includes Advance Health Care Directives and Power of Attorney. Having a will is only the beginning of organizing an estate; it is pertinent to work with an attorney to help plan an estate in order to avoid probate. Since there are different types of trusts, it is necessary to choose the correct trust, as well as, the right settlor and trustee. If one is ill, and not able to make his or her own decisions concerning health, then Advance Health Care Directives is the answer. AHCD is a legal document that allows for a decision to be made in advance if serious medical conditions develop, where one is unable to handle his or her medical decisions. Last, is Power of Attorney, which allows a person to give someone else full authority over his or her financial affairs; however, when the estate planner deceases, the power of attorney is void, and more legal planning is needed.
In addition, the Family Law division is made up of probate, guardianship, conservatorship, and other areas. Establishing a trust can avoid a probate. This involves an assessment of assets administrated through a legal representative, such as the Law Offices of Cheryl Takabayashi, Guardian in Hawaii. Guardianship is getting legal documentation for someone to have parental rights or responsibility over another. Conservatory is similar to a combination of guardianship and power of attorney. It involves legally appointing someone by the court to be the responsible party of the financial affairs of a minor or an incapacitated individual.
