Reg Weydeven, J.D.
Elder Law and Estate Planning
Attorney and family member
Estate planning attorneys are attorneys that plan for someone's death. Elder law attorneys plan for people's lifetime.
Anyone who comes in over the age of 18, should have an advance directive.
Wisconsin is not a next-of-kin state. What that means is: without an advance directive, a person may have to go through the guardianship process.
Have a conversation with your agent. If your agent is faced with making decisions on your behalf, they will take great care knowing that they are honoring your wishes.
