November 15, 2012  |  Estate Planning/Family Law  |  CLE

Powers of Attorney and Advance Health Care Directives

By Sally Jo Simpson of Simpson Law Office, PLLC (AZ)

Please join Estate Planning attorney Sally Simpson to learn about and discuss the basics and some intricacies of these important documents, including:

  • Why – should anyone want or need to have these in place (now more than ever!)?
  • What – kind(s) are available and which are best in any given situation?
  • When – should the powers and directives be effective?  Do they expire?
  • How – do they work with other estate planning documents?  If I really need them, how do I put powers of attorney and directives in place so that they are legally effective?
  • Who – should I put in charge of my life when I am helpless?  Is he or she an “Agent” or a “Power” – or is there a difference?
  • Where – should I or can I obtain these?  Where should I keep the actual documents?  Are they effective outside my home state?
