This Last Will and Testament enables an individual (known as a Testator) to make sure that his/her family and loved ones are provided for and all possessions or property will be distributed in accordance with his/her wishes. This document is not designed for a complex and large estate that raises special tax considerations. This document should be used only for a basic estate which is below the threshold for the payment of inheritance tax and where discretionary trusts and settlements are not required. It has been specifically designed for use by a single person, leaving both specific and general legacies.
A "Power of Attorney" is a legal document where one party (the Principal) authorizes another party (the Agent or the Attorney-in-Fact) to act on his or her behalf if they are unable to make prudent decisions about their financial affairs, they're in a coma, they are otherwise mentally incapacitated, or they are missing. "Durable" means that it is also effective if you become medically incapacitated. This is typically a coma or vegetative state which has been confirmed by your primary care physician.
NOTE: This document does not authorize anyone to make medical or other health care decisions on your behalf. A health care power of attorney (also known as a Proxy or Advance Directive) must be created and executed if desired.
This form creates a HIPAA Authorization form, which enables certain trusted family and friends to have access to your medical records and health information when you are injured. These records are typically used to help prove whether you are capable to make health care and financial decisions on your own, and therefore could activate a Health Care Power of Attorney or a Durable Power of Attorney which you signed when healthy.
This interactive legal document enables you to generate a Declaration as to Medical or Surgical Treatment (Living Will), and, optionally, a Medical Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, for use by a resident of the state of Colorado. The Declaration as to Medical or Surgical Treatment allows you to state your wishes about medical care in the event that you develop a terminal condition and can no longer make your own medical decisions. The Medical Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care allows you to name someone to make decisions about your medical care, including decisions about life support, if you can no longer speak for yourself.
A living will is a written statement which details your desires regarding your medical treatment in circumstances where you are no longer able to make or communicate your desires.
A memorandum distributing tangible personal property accompanies your will and allows you to leave property such as furniture, jewelry, cars, household goods, electronics, and other items to specific individuals you identify. An example would be "I leave my baseball card collection to my brother Jim".
