Popovich Law Firm is happy to assist you in planning your estate for present and future dispositions and gifts of your assets and properties to loved ones and those whom you hold close and dear to your heart. Ms. Popovich can assist you in creating present and testamentary transfers, which may include a will, trust, or both, depending upon your personal needs and wishes. In addition, since parents worry about who will care for their children in the unfortunate event they pass before their children reach the age of majority, Ms. Popovich is here to help you by establishing preneed guardians for the benefit of your children.
There may be times in a person's life where he or she may be incapable of handling his or her own affairs and desire another trusted person to take on his or her duties by giving that trusted person power and authority over his or her assets and properties to administer and manage matters such as paying dunning household bills, assisting in financial decision-making, executing documents and instruments on his or her behalf, etc. Ms. Popovich can assist you by creating a power of attorney to serve your needs. Advanced health care directives should be considered as well, including a living will and designation of health care surrogates. A living will allows you to state your wishes for end-of-life medical care in the event that you are no longer able to express such wishes. A designation of health care surrogates allows you to name representatives to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable to make them yourself.
Summary Administration is a probate process, applying to certain estates and estates valued at or under $75,000 (excluding homestead property), whereby the court administers and probates the decedent's estate through an expedited process. Ms. Popovich can help you determine whether the decedent's estate is eligible for summary administration and may be able to represent you in probating an estate through the summary administration process.
