For clients in Jasper, Greene and Taney counties and throughout Southwest Missouri, we offer free initial consultations so that you are fully informed before taking any action.
Parents have an obligation to take care of their children’s needs no matter what happens. Though it can be tough to think about the circumstances that require such action, it’s important to leave reliable instructions regarding your child’s care in the event of your death or an incapacitating medical condition. Otherwise you will leave it up to a court to decide. We assist clients who are seeking to make guardianship arrangements as part of an estate plan, as well as people looking to assume legal authority for a young person or disabled adult who needs their protection. We also handle adult and minor conservatorships so that someone trustworthy can legally manage a ward’s financial matters.
You have the right to control your own medical treatment decisions, and a debilitating condition should not change that. Unfortunately, if you were to become incapacitated by injury or illness, family members could be put in an extremely difficult position regarding extraordinary measures to prolong your life. Through a living will, we can leave clear directions regarding medical care so that no one has to guess about end-of-life decisions or weigh questions of cost. With an estate plan, we will also draft a durable power of attorney form that gives a person you appoint the legal ability to enforce your wishes.
