How can I assure that my final health decisions are met?
The death of a loved one can leave a family in shambles. This may be especially true if the person who passed away had significant assets. To avoid such potential issues and arguments between family members, it is often in a person’s best interest to create a will. A will can not only establish a trusted friend or family member as executor, but will also list all of a testator’s assets and how the assets are to be distributed at the time of the testator’s death.
Although a testator will appoint a power of attorney with the trustee’s best interest in mind, there is still no assurance that the power of attorney will adhere to the agreement. When a power of attorney’s intentions is not in line with the trustee’s will, this may lead to a contested will.
If you are involved in a dispute regarding a contested will, it is likely you will need legal representation in court.
