The Peace of Mind package is for anyone 18 or older that is not married – be it never married, divorced, widowed, involved in a long term though unmarried relationship, LGBTQ or high school/college aged young adults once they turn 18. It gives parents and young adult children comfort knowing that in case of an emergency, parents can still assist their children. For those single adults that are now divorced, it is important to choose new agents for their documents because California is one of only 10 states that voids agreements entered into during marriage once that marriage is over.
After the age of 18, privacy laws prevent access to important information. The solution is simple and affordable. Having us prepare three essential legal documents now will ensure that a trusted agent can act on your behalf when and if needed.
Power of Attorney—Allows single adults to designate a trusted adult as his or her financial agent. It gives the agent permission to access bank accounts and act financially on the single adult’s behalf if an emergency arises. This document covers activities such as paying bills, filing tax returns, buying or selling assets, applying for government benefits, and opening or closing of accounts.
Advance Health Care Directive—Allows single adults to appoint someone they trust to act as their health care agent if they become incapacitated and unable to speak for themselves. It specifies their wishes regarding long-term care, life support and donation of organs.
HIPAA Authorization—Ensures that their agent can communicate immediately with the single adult’s health care providers and access important medical records. The Peace of Mind Package is available as a stand alone package which includes a document that allows the single adult to revoke these powers at any time.
