With A “Living Will", not a court. You can put the administration of your property, your care and your medical treatment decisions in the hands of someone you know and trust to carry out your wishes.

John Quincy gave numerous large gifts to his 3 children throughout his lifetime. Upon his death he wanted each one of his remaining estates to pass to his wife of Six decades, Hilda Quincy. After Mr. Quincy died, Hilda and the children learned that he did not have a will. The children contacted an attorney at law and learned that not having a will, state regulations gives them two-thirds of their father's estate and their mother only one-third. The children made a decision to claim the two-thirds, leaving Hilda to inherit only one-third of what John had intended.

Mabel Adams spent a long time devoted to her church. Her only son was very successful in business and lived a life of leisure, so Mabel wanted to leave her entire estate to her church, but she postponed completing her will. Mabel died suddenly. In accordance with law of her state, her son claimed her entire estate. The church received nothing. And the stories continue.

If you desire to control where your estate goes, you must have a will. Most people neglect their will, thinking the process is expensive, complicated and that they will have sufficient time to do it later. A Preventive Legal Plan membership helps make the process quick, basic and extremely affordable.

And there is more.

Every time a Preventive Legal Plan attorney completes your will, he / she also drafts a Durable Power of Attorney along with a “Living Will. " A Preventive Legal Plan can save you from the fate of Mr. Quincy and Ms. Adams. Both a Durable Power of Attorney and “Living Will" may be critical should you be incapacitated. You decide whom to grant powers under the Power of Attorney and “Living Will", not a court. You can place the administration of your property, your care along with your hospital treatment decisions in the hands of someone you know and trust to carry out your wishes.

As a Note: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ( HIPAA) was enacted in 1996, it took Congress until 2001 in order to promulgate the foundations that govern HIPAA compliance. Therefore, should you already have an Advance Medical Directive and a Living Will but your documents were created before 2001, then your Advance Medical Directive and Living Will won't be HIPAA compliant and must be redone in order for these documents to work as you expect them to work.
