How do you make health care decisions if you are unconscious?

You see news stories about injury accidents in Tennessee all the time, and the number of ways you might end up incapacitated can be terrifying if you think about it too long. If you are suddenly in a situation where you cannot tell the medical personnel what type of care you want, who will decide? What if the decision is something you would never agree to if you were conscious?

Suggestions for choosing a legal guardian for your children

If you are the parent of young children, you may have already begun thinking about who you would want to care for them if something tragic would ever happen to you. Planning ahead for these types of situations, even if a bit unsettling at times, is certain to provide confidence that if you were ever debilitated in some way, your children would be lovingly cared for by someone you trust and respect. At Fidelis Law, PLLC, we have helped many couples in Tennessee to create estate plans that are legally applicable and customized to meet their needs. 

When should you update your will?

Updating your will is a critical part of the estate planning process. Step one is to have a Last Will & Testament.  But once you have one, keeping it up to date is vital to ensuring that your assets and property go to the people, beneficiaries, loved ones, and organizations that you want them to got to. 

When should I make changes to my estate plan?

Making the time to address your estate planning needs can be very difficult. There are typically many other things a person would rather do instead of creating a will or talking about powers of attorney. However, once you do take the time to address your estate planning needs, you can feel relieved and confident in the future.

3 reasons to talk to your parents about estate planning

No matter how close you are to your parents, it can be very difficult to discuss certain topics with them, like the topics of estate planning and end-of-life care choices. Because of this, many adult children never talk to their parents about things like their wills, trusts or advanced care directives.
