Prepare Your Legal Documents

Health Care Directive/Proxy

//goo.gl/duA0KJ

A health care directive or proxy allows you to set your preferences and designate someone (your Agent) to make health care decisions for you when you are no longer able to do so. Depending on your state, it can be referred to as a health care directive, proxy, medical power of attorney or medical directive.

Medical Power of Attorney

Medical Power of Attorney allows you to designate someone (your Agent) to make health care decisions for you when you are no longer able to do so. If you have a Living Will, the decisions made by your Agent will be constrained by that document. The Medical Power of Attorney is useful for those issues that are not covered by your Living Will. In those cases, your Agent can ensure the intent of your wishes are followed.

Medical Directive

//goo.gl/nVCDJD

Medical directives or living wills are written, legal instructions regarding your preferences for medical care if you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

Last Will and Testament

//goo.gl/E8SWEa

A Last Will enables you to: - Choose who will get your property after your death; - Choose how your property will be divided among your various beneficiaries; - Give specific items of property to specific people; - Appoint someone you trust to administer your estate; and - Appoint a guardian for your minor children. If you die without a Will, your property will be distributed by a court-appointed administrator according to statutory plans for "intestate succession." Your property will be divided among your surviving spouse, children, and possibly other relatives in whatever manner the law of your jurisdiction specifies. You will not have a chance to give property to non-relatives or to exclude relatives. Additionally, if you have no relatives, your property will go to the state rather than to a friend or charity of your choice.
