DuPage County Probate and Guardianship Lawyers
Helping Clients with Probate and Guardianship Matters from Our Office in Lombard
We understand that death or disability is not something you want to think about, let alone plan for. However, there are certain steps you can take now, which can save your loved ones time, money and stress later on. In the event you suffer from an untimely death or disability, your loved ones will already be grief-stricken. You can save them additional heartache, aggravation, and sometimes family turmoil, trying to make difficult decisions on your behalf when you no longer can.
At Aldrich & Siedlarz Law, P.C., we can draft your Last Will and Testament to ensure that your estate is handled properly and your assets administered pursuant to your wishes. We can also prepare your Healthcare Power of Attorney to ensure that medical personnel follow your directions with regard to treatment and end-of-life decisions when you are unable to do so.
You should also designate a Power of Attorney to handle your estate should you become incapable of doing so either temporarily or permanently due to disability, incapacitation, confinement, or otherwise. We can prepare your Power of Attorney for Property to designate the person you trust to handle your finances in your stead.
Do you have a family member who is no longer capable of handling his or her own affairs? Are bills piling up? Is it no longer safe for them to live alone?
If this family member never designated a Power of Attorney, you will need to appear in court to obtain guardianship over them in order to handle their finances, make medical decisions on their behalf and obtain permission to move them into a nursing home or assisted living facility when the time comes. We can file your Petition for Guardianship and help you obtain Letters of Office so that you can care for your loved one during their time of need.
