Estate Planning documents may include the following:
1. a legal Will
2.a Trust or Living Trust
3.Powers of Attorney for both financial and healthcare
If you have property such as a house or condo in California, a Trust Attorney can prepare a Trust which will avoid the substantial cost and time of a Probate for your heirs.
If you have children (and you may not own property) a Will Lawyer can prepare a Will which will nominate guardians for children. A Will may have other functions.
The Powers of Attorney may be needed by adults of any age no matter their circumstance. This would make clear your healthcare and financial wishes if you were to become incapacitated.
