Which estate planning documents are the most important?

Not every document is right for your estate plan. Attorney Matechik will help you identify the instruments that best meet your needs. He recommends everyone at least have in place these estate planning documents:

  • Will - Allows you to express how you want your assets handled after your death.
  • Durable Power of Attorney - Enables a specific person or other entity, chosen by you, to make financial decisions on your behalf, even if you become incapacitated.
  • Health Care Surrogate - Enables a specific person, chosen by you, to make medical decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so.
  • Living Will - Provides clear instructions for how you want your final medical decisions to be made, sparing your loved ones the emotional burden of doing so.


Some individuals and families may also benefit from having a Trust in place. Attorney Matechik offers numerous types of trusts including Living Trusts and Irrevocable Trusts. A Trust can provide many benefits to you including:

  • Keeping your assets out of a costly and lengthy probate process
  • Getting more of your estate to your loved ones faster
  • Distributing your assets per your specific wishes from "beyond the grave"
  • Setting aside money for a loved one to receive later
  • Earmarking funds for specific purposes such as healthcare, education, and special needs.
