Delaware Estate Tax Q&A, Delaware Durable Power of Attorney & Delaware Advance Health-Care Directive

Morris Nichols attorneys Todd Flubacher and J. Zachary Haupt authored three guides on Delaware law for Practical Law. Their Delaware Estate Tax Q&A guide addresses whether a jurisdiction has any estate tax or other similar taxes imposed at death and, for jurisdictions currently imposing a state estate tax.

The authors’ Delaware Durable Power of Attorney overview can be used by an individual residing in Delaware to authorize a third party to manage the individual’s property and financial matters.

The Delaware Advance Health-Care Directive provides advance written directions concerning health-care decisions and how to authorize an agent to make health-care decisions for the individual.
