Helping You Safeguard Your Financial Welfare
Every adult should have a power of attorney. This estate planning tool allows another individual to be responsible for your finances if you are unable to manage them yourself.
At The Law Office of Denise D. Nordheimer, Esquire, LLC, we are extremely active in this area of law and stay up to date on the ever-changing rules for this document in Delaware and Pennsylvania. We know from experience what instructions the courts and financial institutions shall or shall not follow.
Creating A Durable Power Of Attorney
If you own property or substantial assets, you should create a power of attorney. Without appointing someone to take care of your finances, your assets may be lost if you become unable to manage them. Our powers of attorney specify the person or people to whom you wish to give authority to take care of your affairs that may include:
- Buying items
- Gifting or selling assets or property
- Running your business
- Collecting or settling debts
- Applying for government benefits
We design legal documents that are easy to understand yet specific. It is important to us that you and your agent know which responsibilities you are transferring should you become incapacitated. We shall take the necessary steps to explain the degree of authority given so you are fully informed before you sign this document. Our clients appreciate client-centered approach we take when we draft and revise these estate planning instruments.
