Every family should consider what happens to those left behind when a spouse or parent becomes disabled or dies. Steve Ashby has teamed up with Latawsha Little-Hill to form a new law firm, Georgia Will and Probate Lawyers, LLC. Steve and Latawsha work with families to protect their future with Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney and Living Wills (now called Advanced Medical Directives). With these vital documents, people can chart their own destinies rather than take a chance on how governmental solutions may work out in the future. Most people are surprised to learn how easy and inexpensive it is to develop an estate plan, backed up with solid Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney and Advanced Directives for Healthcare. There really is no need to put off such important protections.
Sometimes the greatest problems are the result of disability, not death. If a person becomes incapacitated, those who have to care for them are forced to go through a cumbersome and expensive Guardianship and Conservatorship process. In the vast majority of cases, this process can be avoided by signing a Durable Power of Attorney before someone becomes incapacitated. Similarly, if you become incapacitated and are unable to make medical decisions for yourself, an Advanced Directive for Healthcare can be used to appoint a trusted advocate to make those decisions for you. The Advanced Directive can even be used for important end of life decisions when you can’t speak for yourself.
What will all of this cost? Surprisingly little. Georgia Will and Probate Lawyers have fixed fees for most of these services. We have reasonable rates for simple wills for individuals or couples. If a couple with minor children wants to set up a trust for the children in the event that both parents die before the children reach a specified age, then a Trust Will can be implemented. Wills that are more complicated or which require travel to meet with the clients would cost more. In any case, you can get a free quote before committing to the process. All you have to do is call us at 770-493-4924.
