More Than Just Things & Money

There’s more to an estate plan than the material possessions we acquire and wish to pass down. If you become seriously sick or injured and are unable to tell doctors or family members how you want to be treated, the advance directives in your estate plan can help determine important matters concerning your medical care. You can even assign someone you trust to enact your advance directives and enable them to make decisions on your behalf that may not be accounted for in your plan.

For many people, their medical care interests lay in questions such as:

  • If I am unresponsive, how far will health care workers go to save my life?
  • Will I be resuscitated or live on life support despite brain death?
  • At what point during my treatment will my doctors focus on comfort care?

Our estate planning attorney in Richmond can also help you determine who will be assigned as your children’s legal guardians and who will care for your pets when you pass on. These are important considerations because our children and beloved pets give us so much joy during our lives that ensuring they are well accounted for and will be protected upon our passing is the least we can do for them.
