One of the greatest gifts you can give your family members and your heirs is a well thought out estate plan that consists of a will or possibly a living trust. John Hixson has been assisting families in doing just that for many years in Arlington and can make sure you take care of your loved ones long before circumstances force you to make a rash decision.
In assisting you with the preparation of a will, you may also be asked if you want any special end of life measures to be taken on your behalf. Known as a Directive to Physicians, if you become incapacitated for any reason and are not able to represent yourself and give direction to your doctor or other medical personnel, having a pre-determined course of how you want to be treated will benefit the physicians and your family members.
You may choose to have a physician prolong your life through extraordinary measures, or you may direct medical staff to let nature take its course. Absent of any other direction from you, doctors will look to your closest relatives for instruction, or they make take what they think is the best course of action on your behalf.
There are many steps involved in the probate of wills or the probate of an estate. While every estate will have its own particular set of parameters, there are general principles involved in probate that every family member or heir should be familiar with. Hiring an attorney to assist in these steps will ensure that they are handled in a timely and appropriate way.
