Powers of Attorney
Durable Power of Attorney: The most well known document that appoints another person to act as an agent on your behalf.
Health Care Power of Attorney: This document allows you to empower an individual to make health care and medical treatment decisions on your behalf and only becomes active when you are unable to consciously communicate.
POA's can be general (full) or limited to special circumstances.
When someone dies, their estate goes through Probate Court. If they left a will, it must be admitted by filing in the county where the person lived. Scholles & Scholles can help you navigate through the process of forms and filing.
Control the distribution of your property by setting up a Trust for a Beneficiary. This is helpful for those with minor children or disabled.
A Transfer on Death Affidavit allows you the option to designate beneficiaries without going through Probate Court. Property, retirement accounts including IRA's and 401(k)'s, and other accounts are transferrable on death. Our process takes the worry out of the equation.
