What might you expect at the initial consultation?
We advise new clients to bring in any old estate planning documents you may have. Of course, many new clients will not have any estate planning documents. We are able to establish new estate plans as well as modify and review existing estate plans. New clients will complete intake sheets that will help Beaufort and Morehead City wills and trusts lawyer Sundee G. Stephenson identify the estate planning documents you require. We will find out more about your finances, property, assets, family, health care wishes and more. With this information, we will recommend estate planning documents that can include:
- Powers of attorney
- Health care powers of attorney
- Durable powers of attorney
- Living wills
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts that can impact Medicare planning
- Special needs trusts
