Older clients may have different legal concerns that can require additional legal services. Most people consider a basic estate plan to include planning for death, but sometimes do not consider the importance of planning for incapacity. In an initial estate planning consultation, I focus on the client’s specific needs and I believe that a basic estate plan need not be overly complex. The plan should include a basic will, Idaho Statutory Form Power of Attorney, Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and an Authority to Dispose of Remains (burial or cremation directive).
Many clients will request and be given legal advice regarding planning for long-term care, Idaho’s Medicaid program and non-probate transfers such as jointly titling assets with a family member and designation of beneficiaries.
