When planning for our healthcare needs and estate planning, we need to plan for what may happen—not what we want to happen—and that is why it is important to have a copy of this Medical Power of Attorney for Minors Form in place.
It is also important to have your own powers of attorney in place as well. We often assume someone, such as a spouse, will be able to make decisions for us if we become incapacitated and are unable to handle our own financial affairs or make medical decisions. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Our firm specializes in helping individuals and families plan for their healthcare and estate planning needs. If you have any questions about this form, or other steps you should consider taking to ensure your own financial affairs and healthcare needs will be taken care of, please give us a call, and one of our attorneys will be in touch to discuss your personal situation. You can reach our office by calling (903) 223-5653 or by contacting us online.
