Updating Your Existing Plan During the Pandemic

If you already have an estate plan in place, it is time to review it. Are all of your beneficiary designations current? Have you acquired or sold any significant assets since your last revision? Have your medical preferences changed if you become incapacitated or need a ventilator? Do you need to designate any guardians for minor children? Our firm can help you update your estate plan. Make sure your plan addresses your current needs and preferences.

How to Begin Estate Planning During the Pandemic

If you’ve never created an estate plan before, begin preparing for your consultation by following this link to one of our questionnaires. The questionnaires help organize your information so we can make optimal use of your free consultation.  The questionnaire enables you to organize your significant assets, including investments, retirement accounts, and real estate. It also helps you think about whom you would like to leave these.

If you become incapacitated as a result of injury or illness, what kind of medical procedures will you authorize?  Also, which will you refuse? Is there anyone you can trust to make medical, financial, business, or general decisions on your behalf?  Careful planning helps make sure your wishes are carried out if you’re no longer able to make these decisions yourself. If you have minor children, who should assume guardianship over them in the event that you pass away?

These questions are undeniably tough. Yet, giving them some thought before you begin estate planning will make the process that much more efficient and effective.  During our call, we can brainstorm options, and help you arrive at a plan.   

  • Considering Your Children. If you have children, nothing means more to you in the world. If you and your spouse were both in an accident that left your children without their parents, what would happen? Who would take them to the doctor’s office? Which trusted person would pick them up from school? Who would comfort them in the middle of the night if they have a nightmare? You don’t want your children to end up in the hands of Child Protective Services. Instead, estate planning can help you name precisely who will take care of your children. 

  • Help Your Family Avoid Bad Decisions.

    You may not have considered what will happen to you if you are in a bad accident or if you are in a coma. Do you have a plan for life support? Who will be making these decisions? You don’t want to simply leave this burden up to your loved ones. Instead, you can make the decision and arrangements on their behalf. 

  • Help When You Are Incapacitated.

    Another thing that estate planning can help you with is planning for the possibility of becoming incapacitated. A trauma may make it impossible for you to manage your financial affairs and when this is the case, you want to make sure you have someone you can trust in charge of healthcare and financial decisions. This will not only save your family emotional distress, but it will help ensure you still have a voice when you are unable to speak for yourself.

If you have never completed an estate plan or your current estate plan needs revisions, don’t hesitate to connect with our firm in Philadelphia, PA.

I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
