Wills, Example About "health Care Power Of Attorney"???
Q: I recently wrote a will.It's the first time I've done it.I'm 27,never married,and have never had any kids.While discussing the wording with the lawyer,I told him that I was leaving equal portions to each of six siblings,but nothing to one of my younger sisters.
A: -Mend the fence, and save your estate a lot of money down the road. Trust me! Even if you don't mend the fence, put her in the will, anyway. -The guy is only 27, facrynoutloud! He'll probably rewrite his Will umpty times before he checks out. Maybe down the line he'll reconcile with his sister. What's MUCH MUCH more important, IMHO, especially for a young person who might still be doing risky physical activities, is a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care (similar to, but stronger than a Living Will). In case, heaven forfend, he's left in a vegetative state from, say, a motorcycle accident, does he want to live out his years unconscious and hooked up to tubes? Everybody should execute the above instrument, specifying whether they want to be kept alive at all costs, or what measures they do want taken, and should designate someone to make health care decisions for them if they are incapable.
