Estate Planning tools can include wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, and physician's directives. Probate is the court proceeding for settling an estate after death.

WILLS

The Oregon Legislature has enacted a mandatory plan for the distribution of property of deceased people who have no wills. Called "Intestate Succession," this plan mandates property distribution to specific, predetermined heirs. Many people wish to have more choice in distributing their property after death. A will can reflect an individual's wish to make distributions beyond the scope of the Oregon Legislative plan. A will can designate specific recipients such a spouses, children, other people, or charitable donations. A will can create trusts and nominate personal representatives, guardians for minor children, and financial managers. Vincent A. Deguc can help prepare a will that reflects your wishes.

PROBATE

The probate process includes collection of all assets, location of creditors for filing of claims for payments due, payment of inheritance and income taxes, and distribution to beneficiaries of assets and special bequests. The process is directed by whether the decedent is testate (with a will) or intestate (without a will). The process for small estates is less technical to reduce the length of time for resolving probate issues. Vincent A. Deguc has conducted probates for large and small estates in several Oregon Counties.

POWER OF ATTORNEY

A Power of Attorney enables a person to designate someone to manage affairs and make decisions when the person is no longer able to do so.

A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care authorizes a designated person to make health care decisions, with specific written instructions. It provides for access to medical information, for power to hire and fire health care providers and to change health care facilities, and for authority to enforce the provisions in court if necessary.

A Durable Power of Attorney for Financial Matters includes provisions for when a person is no longer able to make financial decisions. The designated person would be responsible for protecting assets and conducting financial matters in the way the protected person would have done.

Vincent A. Deguc has legal and personal experience in creating and implementing powers of attorney.
