Legal Question

Asked on: 5/23/13, 9:08 pm

I am looking for a document that would allow me to set my own restrictions to the way my assets and estate are handled along with my desires for quality of care, in case I am unable to make important decisions. I would like to appoint a guardian that is outside my family such as a lawyer or entity, but have a document that sets strict guidelines as for my wishes. Something that will protect me from my family if need be, I do not trust them. Does anyone know of anything I could obtain that would do this? I would also like some built in checks and balances to make sure that the guardian is following my wishes as far as my assets and estate is concerned, in the form of an outside firm or accountant.

You would probably want a combination of revocable living trust, medical power of attorney and a guardianship declaration. This is not a DIY project, however.

We could guide you as your attorney but it would be iimpractical to try to advise you on which documents to prepare etc ...and you probably have a qualified estate attorney in your area...but life requires trust...good luck
