Wills, Trusts and Estates

Wills

 

Everyone over the age of 18  should have a will. We can prepare a will to meet the needs of you and your family, taking into account every relevant aspect of your financial and relational situation. A will is not just for the distribution of assets, it can also, for example, direct your wishes for a guardian for minor children or regarding your burial wishes. We can also review your existing will to make sure they meet your current needs.  Click for information on Estate Planning with Minor Children.

 

 

Power of Attorney

 

A Power of Attorney enables you to appoint an agent to make financial and/or healthcare decisions for you.   You can have different agents for your financial and healthcare Power of Attorneys. A Living Will is strongly recommended with a Health Care Power of Attorney.  Having a Power of Attorney in place will lessen the likelihood of a guardianship proceeding.

 

 

Living Wills/Health Care Directive

 

A Living Will , also known as a Health Care Directive, outlines your wishes regarding medical treatment should you become physically or mentally incapable of making those decisions. You will remove the stress from family members when the time comes to make those life and death decisions. In Washington State, any adult person may execute a directive directing the withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment in a terminal condition or permanent unconscious condition.

 

This will remove any doubt as to your wishes concerning:

  • Life support
  • Hydration
  • Medication
  • Feeding

 

The Law Office of Jenny Ling will distribute your Living Will to the necessary parties, including but not limited to:

  • Family Physician
  • Hospital
  • Family Members responsible for your health care

 

By having a Living Will, there will be no question, nor debate as to what you wish.

 

 

Special Needs Trust

 

A Special Needs Trust allows a disabled beneficiary to qualify for government benefits while also receiving benefits from the trust. A Special Needs Trust is used to shelter and preserve assets that would otherwise disqualify a trust beneficiary from government benefits that have a cap on assets.
