Aurora legacy planning and asset protection lawyer

Everyone deserves to have peace of mind about their finances, their personal needs, and their future. When considering these issues, family members will often want to make sure their loved ones will be provided for, but they will also want to make sure they will have sufficient resources to meet their own needs. Regardless of a person's age, it can be important to look toward the years ahead, identify issues that are important to them, take steps to address the needs of different family members, and make plans for how matters will be handled should the unthinkable happen.

When addressing issues related to the assets a person owns, the medical and personal care they will receive throughout their lifetime, and the ways assets may be transferred to family members or used to provide financial assistance, there are multiple legal and financial concerns that will need to be addressed. The assistance of an experienced attorney can be invaluable in these situations. At Peace of Mind Asset Protection, LLC, we work to help families address these issues correctly, take steps to protect themselves, and ensure that they are fully prepared for the future.

Legal Help With Estate Planning and Asset Protection

The process of estate planning will not only involve making decisions about how a person's assets should be distributed to their heirs after their death, but it may also address concerns about medical treatment as a person gets closer to the end of their life and the ongoing management of their assets and other financial matters. To ensure that these issues will be addressed properly, Peace of Mind Asset Protection, LLC can assist with:

  • Wills - A last will and testament details how a person's assets should be distributed to their heirs after their death. A will can also be used to appoint a guardian for minor children and address other important matters. We can help draft and execute wills that will be valid and legally enforceable.
  • Living trusts - A trust is a legal entity that can be used to hold assets on behalf of another person. A person who creates a trust may be able to maintain control of their assets, allowing them to pay certain types of expenses for themselves or others while ensuring that the assets in the trust can be distributed to beneficiaries quickly and efficiently after their death.
  • Powers of attorney - A financial power of attorney can be used to appoint someone to handle a person's financial affairs if they become incapacitated. A medical power of attorney may be used to appoint someone to make decisions about a person's medical treatment if they are unable to do so themselves.
  • Advanced healthcare directives - A living will can be used to express a person's desires regarding medical treatment if they are terminally ill and cannot communicate those wishes themselves. Other types of advance medical directives may also be used to ensure that a person will receive the proper care as they near the end of their life.
  • Legacy planning - As part of estate planning, a person or family may want to consider how they can leave a lasting legacy. This may involve making charitable donations, leaving property to loved ones, or taking other steps that will ensure their memory lives on. We can address multiple issues related to a person's assets and legacy, including assisting with real estate legacy planning.
  • Asset protection and wealth preservation - Those who have substantial wealth will often want to determine how they can protect their assets from creditors, lawsuits, and other legal claims. This type of planning may also be used to help preserve wealth and ensure that it can be passed on to future generations.
