In an effort to show our appreciation for all that first responders (firefighters, police officers, sheriffs, emergency medical technicians, etc.) do to help our community, this free clinic is brought to you by the North Carolina Bar Foundation, in partnership with the Young Lawyers Division of the North Carolina Bar Association. The Wills for Heroes program offers free Wills, Health Care Powers of Attorney, and Powers of Attorney to North Carolina’s publicly employed and volunteer first responders and their spouses/partners. Clinic DetailsWhen: Saturday, October12th, 2019Where: UNC School of Law, Chapel HillPlease register using this Eventbrite for one of the available appointment times (1hr & 15 min appointments): 10:00 AM 11:30 AM  1:00 PM *If you are registering for an appointment for you AND your Spouse/Partner, please select ONE ticket (not two) and answer "Spouse Attending" on the next page. *Appointments  for this clinic are open to first responder residents of all counties in NC* Attorneys, Notaries, and Law Students interested in volunteering at this event can register here. FAQs What to Bring?You will need to bring a photo ID and a completed questionnaire with you to the appointment to prepare for your meeting with the attorney.  The questionnaire for you to fill out and print will be emailed to you after you register.  What is a Will?A Will is a legal document that states your desires concerning what will happen to your assets after your death. A Will also contains other specific directions from you concerning who is to handle administration of your estate and, perhaps, who will care for any minor children you may leave behind.  If you die without a valid Will, the laws of your state of legal residence determine what happens to your assets, and who will care for your minor children.  Your wishes will not be considered, therefore your assets and minor children may go where you don't want them to go. What is a Health Care Power of Attorney?A Health Care Power of Attorney gives the person you name as your "agent" the power to make health care decisions for you if you cannot make the decision yourself. This power includes the power to make decisions about life-sustaining treatment. Unless you state otherwise, your agent will have the same authority to make decisions about your health care as you would have. Such situations would include a non-life-threatening brain injury or stroke, but can also include end-of-life decisions. Additionally, you can give your Health Care Power of Attorney agent discretion to make a decision based on the circumstances. What is a Power of Attorney?A Power of Attorney (POA) is a document which allows the principal, you, to name an individual or individuals who have the authority to act on your behalf under certain circumstances. The true purpose behind a power of attorney is that an individual, while competent, may designate another to make business decisions, pay bills, transfer assets, etc if the principal becomes incompetent or incapacitated.
