Your Uncle Charlie may be getting forgetful. Does that mean that he has lost the privilege of making a new last will and testament or completing other legal actions?

The answer is complicated.

If you know an elder whose thinking is not excellent, and who is about to sign a will or other contract, assign powers of attorney, etc., it would be very prudent to obtain an expert opinion on how solid the elder’s abilities are.

One of my psychological specialties is to provide an expert, independent assessment of the mental capacity of a living person to sign a new will or other important documents. The assessment is performed in the same week as the new document is signed.

Remember, the more important the document is, the more important it is to know now how solid the elder’s capacity is, and therefore how solid their legal right to sign it is, and therefore how reliably the signed document will stand up against any future legal challenge.

Avoid painful surprises in the future by obtaining an expert assessment today. Dr. Chafetz can be reached at 469-233-5566 or visit www.paulkchafetz.com.

Wow, what a year 2021 has been! And here we are already in the holiday season!

Most friends and relatives are reasonable people and good company. But, there is always a danger of painful emotions from incompatible beliefs or irreconcilable differences.

If you are going to be with friends or relatives who are not reasonable, calm people, then you will need some skills! There are skills that apply before the argument (like detecting the growing tension), skills that apply during the argument (like keeping your cool head and helping others do the same), and skills that apply after the argument (like repairing the relationship damage).

If you would like to make sure you are fully prepared for this holiday season, let a consultation with me be your gift to yourself. Let’s work together to help you be your “best you,” and keep your holidays enjoyable.

May is almost over. It is also Mental Health Awareness month. We don’t talk enough about mental health challenges, and we don’t do enough to de-stigmatize them. Which leads me to this video.

If life’s obstacles are pressing down on you or someone you know, let this month be the moment when you find the right person to help with these issues. Please watch my video now.
