Powers of Attorney
If you become seriously ill or incapacitated, you should not have strangers determining how your financial decisions, health care or end of life care are be handled. Attorney John Fernandez can prepare the necessary legal documents to make these decisions in advance or appoint a loved one to make the decision for you.
A power of attorney is a legal document that appoints someone to have certain powers that you have given them. By giving someone your power of attorney, you are allowing him or her to legally act on your behalf in certain kinds of situations. Attorney John Fernandez can help you set up the powers of attorney that fit your specific needs, including health care and financial matters.
If you become incapacitated or disabled without having a power of attorney in place, your loved ones will have to go to court and request the court to grant a guardianship over you. This can be very expensive and time-consuming.
