Estate Planning 

Estate planning empowers a person to make decisions regarding the distribution of their estate after their passing and can provide security to their loved ones after that person is gone. Our office assists in the drafting of wills, trusts, power of attorney forms, and other estate planning documents so that clients of all ages can create comprehensive plans for their estates. Our elder law attorneys also ensure that an estate plan is created properly without procedural error or other issues that can lead to will and estate plan contests during the probate process.

End-of-Life Decisions

The Bellinger Law Office provides representation and legal advice for end-of-life decisions through the use of living wills and healthcare proxy forms. These legal documents dictate a person’s decisions regarding all aspects of medical treatment and care, including the use of certain medications, surgeries, feeding tubes, respirators, Do Not Resuscitate forms, palliative care, and more. It can also identify a trusted loved one to make medical decisions on a person’s behalf if they become unable to do so themselves.  


Adult guardianship in Indiana is sometimes required for the elderly or incapacitated when they are no longer able to care for themselves. A guardian appointed by the court takes on certain responsibilities and duties on behalf of the elder in their care, which can range from assisting in financial decisions to dispensing medications, maintaining hygiene, and more. Applying for guardianship can be a complex and lengthy process, but an experienced Fort Wayne elder law attorney can advocate for what is best for the loved ones in your life.
