Managing Your Finances During Incapacity
If you are incapacitated and no longer able to make decisions about your financial assets, what happens? One option is that the court can appoint a legal guardian, which can be a time-consuming and expensive process. However, there is an easier option. If your estate plan includes a durable power of attorney, you will have already outlined who is in charge of your finances. At the law firm of Lyons & Supple, we have more than 30 years of experience helping people make important decisions about their future. We can help you.

A durable power of attorney grants someone the right to take care of all of your financial affairs, from using your checking account to pay bills to managing your investments.
Designating a durable power of attorney during the estate planning process means that your loved ones will not have to encounter any stress over who is in charge of taking care of your assets. While the law outlines other means of putting someone in charge of your finances by establishing a guardian in emergency situations, this process is not a simple one. It can be expensive. It can be time-consuming. It can also lead to disputes among your family members.
We are committed to providing personalized estate planning services. That means that the advice we provide is specifically tailored to your situation. When we recommend that you establish a durable power of attorney, it is because we have carefully analyzed your needs and have determined it is an important step in accomplishing them.
