Ventura County Lawyer For Powers Of Attorney

Planning responsibly for the future requires a variety of basic, yet extremely effective tools. No matter the complexity or simplicity of your situation, you should have an estate plan that includes a power of attorney.

A power of attorney designates a person, or multiple people, who will be authorized to make decisions for you in the event of incapacity. Without this important tool, you and your family may be subject to lengthy, invasive and expensive conservatorship proceedings. A power of attorney, by contrast, is a simple, quick and inexpensive way to avoid troublesome court proceedings down the road.

The Importance Of Early Preparation

When it comes to crafting a power of attorney for yourself or a loved one, it is important to be proactive.

If you wait until the need arises, it may be too late.

For example, many people do not realize that their loved one needs a power of attorney until a devastating diagnosis of dementia, Alzheimer's or another serious illness has been made. By this time, it is usually too late. Instead, it is important to implement a power of attorney at the first signs of any debilitating condition — or better yet, long before any such condition arises.

Types Of Power Of Attorney

In California, you can create a power of attorney that will not go into effect except in the event of your incapacity. In some situations, however, you may wish to designate someone who can legally act on your behalf now. We can carefully tailor a power of attorney to address your specific needs.

Many people mistakenly believe they can continue to act on another's behalf through a power of attorney even after that person has passed away. Unfortunately, a power of attorney is only effective while the person who granted the power is still living. For this reason, it is critical to develop a comprehensive estate plan that includes diverse tools for implementing your goals and desires both while you are living and after your death.
