    Key Elements of Estate Planning

    Last Will & Testament

    It is the most recent will that a person has made before they are gone. This legal document communicates a person’s last wishes concerning assets and heirs.

    Healthcare Power of Attorney

    HPOA is a legal document that allows a person to grant power to a specific person to make their medical care decisions. One can choose any capable adult for their healthcare power of attorney.

    Living Will

    A living will or an Advanced MEdical Directive nominates a person who can make decisions about medical care in case you become terminally ill and/or are unable to communicate.

    Financial Power of Attorney

    Financial power of attorney covers the names of those who you grant authority to act on your behalf in financial matters. It includes making bank deposits, paying bills, collecting your insurance benefits, etc.

    Establishment of Trust

    A trust is a legal entity in which the settlor and the beneficiaries are named. It is controlled as per the wishes of the testator which are documented in a legal document that establishes the trust.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. How do I start estate planning?

    You can start your estate planning by following the below-mentioned steps:

    • Create a list of all of your document liabilities, personal property, and financial assets
    • Calculate your net worth
    • Hire a seasoned estate planning attorney in Texas.
    • Determine your beneficiaries
    • Regularly revisit your estate plan
    2. Why should I need estate planning?

    Estate planning ensures that your family does not have to worry about how your estate needs to be handled after you are gone, especially when they’re still grieving.

    Your estate plan is a testimony of your clear decisions and instructions about how and by whom your possessions will be possessed and managed after you have deceased. Your money will or trust will decide what needs to be done with your money.

    3. What should be included in an estate plan cover?

    An ideal estate plan should include:

    • A durable power of attorney
    • Distribution of property
    • Letter of intent
    • Tax planning
    • Probate avoidance measures
    • Healthcare power of attorney
    • Guardianship designations in case of minors or special needs individuals
    • Beneficiary designations
    • Charitable gifts
    • Will/trust

    Hire only an experienced estate planning attorney in Texas to ensure that your estate plan covers all the necessary items.

    4. What would happen to my estate if I die without having an estate plan in place?

    If you die without having an estate plan, ideally, your estate will be distributed fairly among your family as per the law of the state.

    Save your family from the trouble of estate planning and distribution. Invest today in a solid estate plan.

    5. What is the best time to consider estate planning?

    It is recommended to start your estate planning the moment you become a legal adult and possess anything in your name. A great start could be consulting an estate planning lawyer in Texas and discussing if you need one yet.
