Helping You Plan Today To Protect Your Interests Tomorrow

Estate Planning

Preparing For Your Family’s Future

Estate planning isn’t just for the young at heart. Individuals of all ages who have families and assets to protect may benefit from writing a will or setting up a trust. Other documents, such as durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney and living wills, make it possible for someone you trust to make financial or health care decisions for you.

If you would like more information about developing an estate plan that meets your family’s needs and your goals for the future, call Quay & Associates, P.A., in New Bern, North Carolina, at 252-649-0530.

Making Decisions Today To Protect Your Interests Tomorrow

At our law firm, we understand estate planning decisions are often difficult to make, and require time and information. Our dedicated lawyer has more than 10 years of experience answering clients’ questions and helping them make informed legal decisions about their estates. We will discuss North Carolina’s inheritance laws and the impact each estate planning document will have on your future and the future of the property you worked so hard to earn.

We have the knowledge to help you prepare the following estate planning documents, among others:

  • Trust: A trust allows one person — a trustee — to hold property for the benefit of someone else — the beneficiary — according to your wishes.
  • Last will and testament: A will is a legal instrument that explains how you would like your property to be distributed after your death.
  • Durable power of attorney: Through a power of attorney, you can authorize a person to make financial or health care decisions on your behalf.
  • Health care power of attorney: A health care power of attorney allows you to authorize an agent to make health care decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so yourself. This power includes making decisions about life-sustaining procedures, mental health treatment and other health care needs.
  • Living will: Also known as an advance medical directive, a living will is a document that explains your health care wishes in case you are ever in a vegetative state (coma) or facing a terminal illness, and you are incapable of making decisions.

We can also assist you with establishing guardianships, and we can knowledgeably guide you through the estate administration process in North Carolina.
