Estate And Elder Law Services In Red Lion

Many assume that estate planning is something the elderly do to put their affairs in order. However, estate planning serves a wide range of roles beyond drafting a will. Families with young children need to establish guardianship in case both parents die or become incapacitated. It is also a good idea for those parents to determine power of attorney and medical care directives. Of course, older folks with estates can do their spouses and adult children a favor by drafting a well-thought-out estate plan.

Kristine K. Eveler handles most of our estate law work here at Eveler & DeArment Law Offices. She is a lawyer with more than 25 years' experience who works closely with clients in south-central Pennsylvania to make sure that they address all their estate needs. This can include all areas of estate law as well as determining Medicaid strategies for maximizing care, establishing guardianship for the incapacitated, handling life insurance policies and annuities, and probate issues.

Knowledgeable Guidance In All Estate Law Matters

Our firm offer services in a variety of estate planning, elder law and other matters, including:

  • Drafting a will: By putting it all in writing, you can save your family from frustration that may even lead to permanent rifts.
  • Amending a will: It is advisable to update your will when there are major changes in your life, such as getting divorced or remarried.
  • Creating a living will: This involves dictating your wishes for health care protocols in case of incapacity.
  • Establishing a trust: Trusts are a great way to transfer a large amount of wealth to beneficiaries. They can also be used to take care of the incapacitated or support organizations of your choosing.
  • Probate administration: If your loved ones are not good with making decisions and paperwork, it may be best to use someone outside the family to guide them, particularly if you foresee disagreements.
  • Powers of attorney: This enables someone to manage your finances if you are unable to do so yourself. This is terminated once the principal dies and probate begins.
