This is a legal document which outlines how you wish your assets to be distributed upon your death. Parents with sole custody may also designate a legal custodian for their minor children upon their death. If you have previously done a will and a subsequent child has been born, the previous will is no longer valid. If you die without a will, Louisiana Law will determine who receives your assets. The application of the law could result in a distribution of your estate in a different way than you would desire.
Living Will (also known as an Advanced Directive)
A legal document which clarifies what medical treatment you would want administered to you if you were terminally ill or in a comatose or vegetative state. Please note that most living will forms that are easily accessible fail to cover some of the more common and serious problems that could be encountered, therefore, you should only have a living will drafted by an attorney who has expertise in this area of the law. Katherine L. Hurst has personally done extensive research on this area of the law and is very experienced in drafting living wills that will cover all contingencies.
Health Care Power of Attorney
A legal document which designates which party should be recognized as your agent to make health care decisions for you if you happen to become incapacitated or medically unable to make such decisions.
