PRACTICE AREAS

Inner Banks Legal Services assists in simple estate planning, and we can assist with the following:

  • Simple Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Mental Health Directive
  • Advanced Directive (Living Will)
  • Probate
  • Settlement of Decedent’s Estate (Estate Administration)

SIMPLE WILLS

Focuses on establishing who will inherit your property (your “beneficiaries”), and who will handle the closing of your affairs (your “executor”).

POWER OF ATTORNEY

If you are unable to do so, a Power of Attorney establishes who can handle your financial matters and make financial related decisions on your behalf.

HEALTH CARE POWER OF ATTORNEY

Allows another person to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to make those decisions yourself. A Mental Health Directive can allow someone you trust to make treatment and admission decisions if you are unable to do so due to a diagnosed condition.

ADVANCED DIRECTIVE

An Advanced Directive is also known as a Living Will. This document describes when you may want certain medical procedures withheld, if you are unable to communicate your wishes.

PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

In administering estates, we assist beneficiaries in collecting assets, paying debts, closing affairs, and distributing estate property according to state law or the wishes expressed in estate planning documents.
