What is the Difference Between a Power Of Attorney

What is the Difference Between a Power Of Attorney and a Guardianship? Which is Appropriate for Someone With Alzheimer’s?

by: William G. Hammond, JD

A power of attorney is a legal document in which one person (the principal) authorizes another (the agent) to act on his/her behalf. Financial powers of attorney allow your agent to make decisions regarding your property. Healthcare powers of attorney allow your agent to make decisions regarding your health care needs.
A power of attorney permits you to appoint someone else to manage your financial and business affairs when you cannot do it yourself anymore.
This document can be a lifesaver when crisis situations occur after an accident or illness. The agent can do whatever the document allows, such as withdraw bank funds, pay bills, cash checks, and buy and sell real estate. The power of attorney is less costly and more private than a guardianship.
Guardianship, on the other hand, is a legal relationship whereby a probate court gives a person (the guardian) the power to make personal decisions for another (the ward).
A family member or a friend can initiate the proceedings by filing a petition in the probate court in the county where the individual resides. A medical examination by a licensed physician may be necessary to establish the individual’s condition. A court of law will then determine whether the person is unable to meet the essential requirements for his/her health and safety.
A conservatorship is a legal relationship whereby the probate court gives a person (the conservator) the power to make financial decisions for another (the protectee)...

Travel Insurance Might Be Just What You Need!

Travel Insurance Might Be Just What You Need!

by: Mike Yeager

Travel insurance is something that many people haven’t considered. Sure, it’s possible that you may never have to access your travel insurance, but just having it can really give you peace of mind. As it so often happens, there are many different circumstances or situations that could cause you to cancel your trip, interrupt your plans and possibly return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling. To demonstrate the importance of purchasing travel insurance, and emergency travel services, here are a few common examples of what might go wrong:
It’s 8:00 p.m. and your family arrives at the airport for a connecting flight, only to find that your flight has been cancelled. How do you get your family home? A travel insurance policy would be very helpful.
Your spouses luggage was lost which contained his medical insulin inside. Obviously he needs to locate that piece of luggage very soon. What could you do?
It’s your first visit overseas to Europe, and your passport and wallet are stolen. A terrible circumstance to be in under any condition. Where would you turn for emergency cash, and very importantly, how will you get your passport replaced?
Your spouse is involved in an accident and adequate medical treatment is not available. Who will help arrange and pay for a medical evacuation? A solid travel medical insurance policy would go a long ways towards easing the difficulties of this situation.
Sure, these circumstances are rare and may not ever happen to you. However, if you have adequate travel insurance you can relax a little because now you’ve got someone on your side.
Take your time and look around to see what is offered and we’re confident you’ll find the travel insur...

Five Reasons Why I don’t Have a Will

Five Reasons Why I don’t Have a Will

by: Wayne Patterson

One: I hate my children and want them to never speak to each other again after the battle over my estate.
Two: I hate my spouse and want him or her to suffer the agony of attempting to probate my estate without a will.
Three: I think foster care is great and I want my minor children placed there while a court decides which greedy relative will get custody.
Four: My family doesn’t need the money so I want the government to take as much of my estate for taxes as possible.
Five: I have reliable information that I am never going to die.
Of course the above is written tongue in cheek. However the tragedy of the Twin Towers, the battle over freezing Ted Williams body, and now the sniper shootings in the D.C. area are bringing to more Americans a deeper realization of their own mortality and that of their loved ones. The American Bar Association estimates that 70% of Americans do not have a will. The median age of those killed in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was 39 and over two thirds of those killed were men. This is the age group least likely to have a will and the court battles will last for many years after the physical scars are erased.
A case in point is the story of a young lady from Atlanta, Georgia. Her parents divorced when she was a baby and her mother died several years later. Her aunt took in the child and worked two jobs so the niece could graduate from college. The young lady was ambitious and bright. After college she excelled in her job and which allowed her to buy a house and a new car. Eventually the aunt became disabled and was taken in and cared for by her niece. One foggy morning a crash on an Atlanta freeway ended the young lady’s life...

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Myths

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Myths

by: Steve Austin

Think you’ve got the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) figured out? Don’t be so sure. While nothing can take the place of a lawyer’s advice, if you’ve at least overcome these three biggest myths about the law, you may save yourself a lot of money and heartache.
FDCPA Myth 3: the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is the only law governing collections:
Fact: The FDCPA is a US federal law. Each state has additional laws that govern fair debt collection practices. Some portions of those laws may have been invalidated by the federal law. But, as a general rule, state laws are valid if they provide greater protections (or restrictions, depending on your point of view), and invalid if they allow debt collectors too much leeway. Meanwhile, other countries have their own laws, which may or may not apply if the collector or debtor is currently located outside the US.
Reality: it is important to keep in mind all the relevant state laws. Those state laws may include the laws of up to three or even more states: the debtor’s current state of residence, business, and/or work
