Many people have never thought about or considered what would happen if they became ill or pass away. Proper planning with the Chicago estate planning attorneys at JRQ & Associates, LLC will help ensure that you and your loved ones are take care of during your and their time of need.
Estate plans help you to prepare for your future with minimal disruption and limited court intervention. Our estate planning attorneys provide guidance and help you create a plan for managing what happens when you are unable to decide yourself. We work with estates small to large including those with a wide range of assets from real estate to retirement plans, and investment portfolios to pieces of fine art.
Certain aspects of an estate plan are designed to manage what happens when you pass away.
A property power of attorney allows others to manage your assets on your behalf. These can be structured to allow others to perform actions on your behalf and can be limited to certain scenarios or to allow someone to make decisions if you are unable to do so.
A healthcare power of attorney allows others to make medical decisions on your behalf. Our estate planning attorneys design a power of attorney for healthcare to ensure that your wishes regarding your healthcare are acted upon.
An advanced directive tells a healthcare provider how to care for you in the event you are unable to make decisions for yourself, typically in conjunction with your power of attorney for healthcare.
If you wish to donate all or a portion of your estate to charity when you pass, we will work to ensure that your wishes are fully realized.
Furry friends are integral part of many families. A pet trust ensures that your pet is taken care of if you are unable to do so.
Some families have unique needs necessitating trusts designed for the care of those with special needs. Special needs trusts or disability trusts ensure that those who need additional support can receive it.
Even in this day and age, LGBTQ+ people may face unique and challenging issues that our estate planning attorneys will ensure are avoided. In some cases, there may even be attorneys that do not provide an atmosphere that allows you to feel comfortable sharing personal information that is important to an attorney-client relationship. As an LGBTQ+ owned and operated law firm, you can be assured that you will have compassionate and sensitive attorneys that are sensitive to the issues that impact our community and that will keep your mind at ease while fully protecting your interests.
Whatever your situation, you’re in good hands with JRQ & Associates. Our estate planning attorneys will structure an estate plan around your desires and interests to ensure that you and your loved ones are taken care of.
