WILLS & LIVING TRUSTS – WILLS

What Can a Will Do for You?

Wills are legal documents that state your desire for the distribution of your property after you pass away. Many individuals draft a Will to meet their estate planning needs.
A will can provide the following benefits:

  • Choosing an executor for your will who can ensure that your wishes are fulfilled after you pass away.
  • Designating beneficiaries, as well as what each one receives from your estate.
  • Selecting when and how beneficiaries receive property and  finances after your death.
  • Choosing a guardian to care for any minor children in your household after your death.

Unlike a living trust, wills are subject to probate, which is a court-directed process that governs the distribution of your state per the instructions of your will. If you do not explicitly lay out your wishes for your property in a will, the court makes these decisions on your behalf.

Fees indicated herein do not include recording, filing, or courier service charges.

Simple Will

WILLS & LIVING TRUSTS – LIVING TRUSTS

What is a Living Trust Agreement?

A living trust provides you with control over who gets your property after you pass away and allows beneficiaries to avoid the costly, time-consuming nature of probate for the allocated assets. When your living trust is created, your assets are then transferred to the trust, and you are the trustee until you pass away. Your assets then pass to the indicated beneficiaries after you pass on.

If you cannot or do not wish to manage your trust assets, the successor trustee named in your living trust takes over for you. After your death, assets are distributed to the designated beneficiaries according to the terms of the trust. Let Us Help trusts must be signed by the involved parties and then notarized, with the notary public also acting as a witness to the signing.

Our single and joint living trust packages include:

  • Living Trust Agreement
  • Pour-Over Will
  • Organizational Section
  • Uniform Statutory Form Power of Attorney
  • Advance Healthcare Directive

Fees indicated below do not include charges for document filing, recording, or courier services.

Single Living Trust Package

Our comprehensive living trust package includes all of the necessary documents designed for individual trusts. The Living Trust Agreement requires your signature to be actionable. This package outlines the obligations of the trustee as the manager of your estate and allocates this property to your chosen beneficiaries after death.

Single Living Trust packages are amendable and revocable at your discretion while you are alive and competent to make such decisions about the terms therein.

Joint Living Trust Package
Starting at $549

Let Us Help’s Joint Living Trust Package provides several living trust documents tailored to meet the needs of a married couple in one convenient package.

WILLS & LIVING TRUSTS – POWER OF ATTORNEY

What is Power Of Attorney?

If you wish to grant some of the legal ability to act on your behalf, you need a power of attorney to do so. This legal document can be applied to a variety of needs, including finances, property affairs, and healthcare. The party who executes a power of attorney by signing it is called the principal. The party that is given authority over the principal is referred to as an agent or attorney-in-fact.

There are several categories of power of attorney, including:

  • Advance Healthcare Directive, which allows the agent to make healthcare-related decisions for the principal. In some states, you may hear this referred to as a healthcare proxy, healthcare power of attorney, medical power of attorney, or healthcare directive.
  • General or Special (Limited) Power of Attorney, which gives agents authority over finance and property matters related to the principal.
  • Uniform Statutory Form Power of Attorney, a “durable” agreement which can be used to grant agents broad financial authority if the principal is incapacitated.
Why Should You Use a Power of Attorney?

Power of attorney documents let you set the terms for who manages your property during your lifetime if you are unable to do so on your own. These agreements can be designed to fit the needs of the principal in a variety of ways:

  • Agents can be given very broad or extremely limited legal authority over medical, personal, and financial matters per the wishes of the principal.
  • Principals can receive assistance with their personal and financial affairs from a trusted caregiver or relative instead of a court-appointed individual.
  • Power of attorney only lasts during the lifetime of the principal, including in situations where the principal is physically or mentally incapacitated.
  • Agreements can be drafted so that they are “durable” (actionable regardless of physical or mental capacity of the principal) or “springing” (activated only when the grantor is incapacitated).

Fees indicated below do not include filing, recording, or courier service costs. If you wish to prepare a new power of attorney agreement, please also add a revocation of power of attorney to your order.

Advance Healthcare Directive
Starting at $149

Let Us Help’s Advance Healthcare Directive Package appoints a trusted individual of your choosing to make medical decisions on your behalf if you lose the ability to make such decisions. This process ensures that healthcare providers meet your needs and follow your wishes.

The agent’s decisions about your health care, including changes in light of changes to your condition, are treated as your own. If you have specific directions that you wish for the agent to follow, including preferences for organ or tissue donation, you can itemize them in the Advance Healthcare Directive. Agents are given as little or as much authority as you wish.

If you are ordering a Medical Power of Attorney form to create a new agreement, please add a Revocation of Advance Healthcare Directive to your order.

General Power of Attorney For Finance & Property Matters
Starting at $149

Our General Power of Attorney Package allows principals to grant an agent broad authority to act on your behalf in matters regarding property and finances. If you must draft a new agreement to replace the pre-existing one, please add a Revocation of Power of Attorney to your order.

Limited Power Of Attorney For Finance & Property Matters
Starting at $149

Much like a General Power of Attorney, agents are given authority over the principal’s finance and property-related matters. However, the jurisdiction they have is limited to items specified in the agreement. Please add a Revocation of Power of Attorney to your order if you need to draft a new agreement.

Uniform Statutory Form Power Of Attorney
Starting at $149

A Uniform Statutory Form Power of Attorney lets principals delegate broad authority over personal financial affairs. What differentiates this document from a General Power of Attorney, however, is that this agreement is “durable”, meaning it is effective regardless of physical or mental disabilities that may incapacitate the principal.

This type of agreement is most beneficial for situations where the principal becomes temporarily or permanently incapacitated, or has an accident or severe illness that renders the grantor unable to manage their financial affairs. This agreement only lasts as long as the principal is alive. If you wish to revoke a pre-existing agreement to draft a new one, please add a Revocation of Power of Attorney package to your order.

Revocation of Advance Healthcare Directive
Starting at $149

This Revocation of Power of Attorney form applies specifically to advance healthcare directives. Whether you have changed your mind about having a power of attorney or wish to draft a new document altogether, revocation is necessary to conform to these wishes.

Revocation Of Power Of Attorney
Starting at $149

Whether your situation is changed, you have changed your mind about the use of power of attorney, or you wish to draft a new agreement, this revocation is necessary to end the existing agreement per your wishes.

The team at Let Us Help wants to ensure that California residents receive power of attorney document services that are tailored specifically to their needs.
