Creating a Last Will and Testament is absolutely necessary if you want to control who inherits your estate's property when you die. Otherwise, Louisiana law will dictate who inherits what and how much depending on certain circumstances, such as marriage, community property, separate property, and children and the capacity of the children (i.e., how old they might be when you die or whether they are mentally or physically disabled). Without a will, your entire estate will automatically go to your children, but with a will, you can make your own determinations about who inherits your property and how much. For instance, you could leave a certain percentage of your entire estate to your wife or husband, and the rest to your children – or you could leave everything to your spouse. The point is, Brandy Gonzales can counsel you on all of your options so that you can make an informed decision in securing how your assets will be distributed upon your death.
Brandy Gonzales Legal Services, LLC can also assist in opening Succession/Probate proceedings required to pass title of a loved one's estate. Under Louisiana law, anyone who has an interest in the deceased's estate may open Succession or Probate his or her Last Will and Testament. Let our office assist you in navigating through Louisiana state laws and cumbersome paperwork in these trying times.
Our office can also assist in helping you prepare Power of Attorney for either Health or your property. In the event that you become incapacitated due to illness, accident or other misfortune, proper contingency plans are essential. Otherwise, expensive and detailed court proceedings are necessary to determine who takes charge of your property and even your life. By appointing a friend or family member as your representative, you can minimize these costly hassles and rest assured that your business and personal affairs will be handled in any event. And naming a health power of attorney, makes certain someone you trust will be making all major health care decisions if you are not able to do so yourself, such as authorizing surgery, nursing home/specialized care decisions and managing medication.
On the same note, we may also assist in creating a living will. By creating a living will or declaration regarding life-sustaining procedures when diagnosed with a terminal and irreversible condition, you essentially are making a decision about whether or not you would want extraordinary medical procedures to keep you alive, removing the possibility of a huge burden on your loved ones.
Brandy can help you form your business too, including assisting you in determining whether determining whether or not you should form an LLC, Corporation, Sole Proprietorship or Limited/General Partnership. We understand that nothing is more important for a new business than to establish ownership and make sure every detail is legally in line, not just for taxes and bureaucratic entities, but for your own peace of mind.
