The Difference Between a Living Will and Last Will and Testament
A living will and a last will and testament are distinct legal documents that meet different needs. A living will outlines instructions about the medical care an individual wants to receive should he or she become mentally incapacitated or gravely ill. It is necessary to provide this advanced directive so that medical professionals and your family understand your desires. As part of your living will, you will name an attorney-in-fact to represent your interests. Czachor, Polack + Borchardt, L.L.P. can help you with the process. On the other hand, a last will and testament – which some simply call a will – makes known how you want to distribute your assets after your death. Our attorneys can help you draft your will and name an executor, who will carry out its instructions through a probate process.
Your Assets, Your Future — You Decide What Happens
Creating a will is a fundamental aspect of estate planning. We will work closely with you to help you designate how you would like your assets distributed and how you would like your children cared for if something were to happen to you. We will spend valuable time working with you to create an estate plan that considers your financial situation and the goals you have for your family.
Our firm’s Wisconsin living will attorneys are available to help you select people who can carry out your medical treatment directives. We can work with you to establish a power of attorney. This person will be given the authority to make financial decisions for you if you become mentally or physically incapacitated. Our legal team can also work with you to create an advanced health care directive so that your family understands your health care wishes.
