Law Made Easy Press
Free sample

Powers of attorney are one of the most important legal documents you will ever sign. Every adult should have a power of attorney. Yet, many people ignored this fundamental legal step and might have no protection if they are ever disabled or are unavailable for travel or other reasons to act for themselves. They might subject themselves to the costs and trauma of a guardianship proceeding. Many who make the effort to obtain and sign a power of attorney rely on standard boilerplate documents that might not address vital personal, tax, or legal issues that are critical to protecting themselves and their loved ones. Finally, this common legal document is often used as a spigot for elder financial abuse.

This practical yet sophisticated primer is designed to educate and inform you about what a power of attorney is, how you can be certain you obtain a document that works for you, and many other practical steps. Whether you hire an estate planning specialist, a general practice lawyer, use a form supplied by your bank, or prepare a document on your own using one of the many legal websites, you will get a much better result if you read this book and understand the decisions involved.

Once you have a power of attorney document, what do you do with it?

How can  you organize your financial and legal matters so that if you are ever disabled your agent can really help you?

If you are named an agent what steps should you take?

Would your religious beliefs or health challenges affect what you might need to do?

This book will give you lots of practical advice that many professional advisers and legal websites often ignore. It will help you really protect yourself and accomplish your goals.

"I have often said that money problems are not solved with money. Ann-Margaret understands it is not what you make but what you keep that matters. You will read this once and refer to it for years to come." —Dr. Phil, from his foreword It is no secret that we are living in an increasingly litigious society. What may come as a surprise, though, is that we are far more likely to be involved in a costly legal dispute with a former loved one than we are with a stranger. In Love and Money, Ann-Margaret Carrozza will help you to easily understand and implement essential legal strategies to prevent you from doing legal battle with someone you once shared Thanksgiving dinner (or a pillow) with. Through an engaging narrative, including amusing cautionary tales, readers will learn how to utilize contracts to identify and avoid costly relationship landmines, reduce pet peeves, and create a joint mission statement, all the while ensuring that one's wealth and values are transmitted to future generations. Love and Money demystifies many legal structures, including: Prenuptial agreements Postnuptial agreements Cohabitation agreements Love contracts Wills Trusts Powers of attorney Healthcare advance directives After learning how to erect legal barriers against external wealth destroyers and evildoers, the focus of the book moves to internal wealth destroyers. Readers will learn how to identify and combat internal wealth repellants such as low self-esteem, fear, and stress. Becoming and remaining wealthy requires more than just money. This book provides a unique education about the interrelated nature of the internal and external laws of wealth and how to put them both to work for stronger relationships with one's finances and loved ones.
