What is a power of attorney?

When you are establishing your estate plan in Ohio you may think first of a will or trust. These documents definitely are important for any estate plan, but as WebMD explains, you also should consider having a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a written legal document that designates the person(s) you choose to make decisions for you if you are unable to make them for yourself.

What is a living will?

Understanding the various options for advanced directives is an important part of determining how you want your end of life care handled in Ohio. The differences between arrangements allows you to select the legal document that is right for you and your situation. For many people, a living will offers everything they need to make their desires known as they near their life's end. 

What you need to know about a guardianship

If you are preparing your estate plan in Ohio, you may want to consider creating a guardianship. This legal process can be beneficial in a number of ways. We at Kroener Hale Law Firm can help you with this and any other questions you may have as we work together to plan for the future.

How a prenup can help a remarriage

Ohio residents who have been divorced at least one time already and have found a new love can benefit greatly from creating a prenuptial agreement before walking down the aisle again. This may be especially true if one or both of the partners in a new relationship has children from their prior marriages. What are some of the benefits of a prenup for a remarriage?

How to pay for nursing home care

While end of life decisions may not always be the most pleasant to think about, planning ahead can ease stress later on for your loved ones. This is especially true when it comes to paying for nursing home care in Ohio. If you have not yet determined how you will pay for this situation if it arises, it is important to do so as soon as possible. At Kroener Hale Law Firm, we know that determining funding is a crucial part of planning for your future.

Determining the trust that is right for you

Once you become unable to manage your accounts through death or injury and your trust becomes active, you want to be sure that everything goes according to your plans. While this may sometimes be the case, there are situations when mistakes were made in the estate planning process. These can make it possible for creditors to access your assets and your intended ownership to be denied. We at Kroener Law Firm work hard to keep this from happening by ensuring that the trust you choose is the right one for you.

How to make an estate plan in a remarriage

Are you one of the many Ohio residents who is getting married for the second or even third time? Whether your prior marriage ended by divorce or death, your long-term plans may still need to be thought about differently with your new marriage. This can be especially so if you, your future spouse or both of you have children from your prior marriages. If you have new children together, that may provide yet another complication.

How can I establish a living will?

In Ohio, you can establish a living will using a standard form. This type of form is available from various organizations and written by the Ohio State Bar Association. The OSBA specifies that you do not have to use this form, but that any living will must be stated using language from the Ohio Revised Code to be valid. Most doctors and health care facilities will also have living will forms that you can use.
