The Sauter Law Firm provides elder law services for Cincinnati, focusing on the Westside communities like Westwood, Delhi, and Western Hills.
Elder Law is the legal area concerned with the care and health of older persons, including their financial, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. It includes care for the elderly person if they become incapacitated, legal details regarding their estate, and their will for the future in the event of their passing.
A guardianship is when a court appoints a person to care for someone who can no longer care for themselves, physically or mentally. The guardian has a legal responsibility to act in the best interest of the person.
A power of attorney is a form of legal document that gives another designated person the authority to make decisions regarding someone’s finances or healthcare.
Powers of attorney are useful to have in place for people that later become disabled or incapacitated so that others can see to their needs.
At The Sauter Law Firm in Cincinnati, OH, we are committed to providing elder law and estate planning services for the Westside communities like Westwood and beyond.
