ESTATE PLANNING: LIVING WILLS/ADVANCE MEDICAL DIRECTIVES
Estate planning has an important correlation to divorce.
- Many separations and divorces can be in progress for years without a resolution. During that time, a spouse will most likely continue to have the right to make medical and financial decisions for the other spouse in the event of his or her incapacity.
- After a divorce, these rights do not automatically revert to the person you want in this role unless you have your own living will and/or power of attorney.
This area of law has received much media attention. It is imperative that divorcing spouses take the time to consider the importance of self-determination in medical and financial decision making.
We have experience drafting living wills and powers of attorney for our divorce clients which are individually tailored to address their unique needs and concerns. We serve clients throughout Northern Virginia, including Alexandria and Fairfax.
