Plan Ahead With A Durable Power Of Attorney

Having a durable power of attorney in place is a crucial part of protecting yourself, your finances and your family. If you are incapacitated and unable to make decisions, a durable power of attorney will allow your designated attorney-in-fact to handle your finances for you.

We know that these issues can be overwhelming at first. With a lawyer's help, however, you will understand all of your options. At The Law Office of Richard G. Garmil in Haverhill, our attorney represents people who need to create a durable power of attorney in Massachusetts. When you work with Richard G. Garmil, he will thoroughly explain how these documents can protect you.

It is important to know that you cannot make financial decisions for your spouse or children over age 18 simply because you are related. You must have the proper documents or you will not be allowed to handle their financial affairs unless your name is on the account.

Make Sure Your Finances Will Be Handled According To Your Wishes

A durable power of attorney allows you to name someone to handle your financial matters when you are unable to do so. This can include managing financial accounts, paying bills and handling real estate and business matters. You can decide how much authority to give your attorney-in-fact; your power of attorney document can be as broad or specific as you choose.

Creating a durable power of attorney now can prevent the need for a conservatorship in the future. It also reduces the potential for family disputes in the event you are incapacitated. Talk to us, and we will make the process easy for you.
