What Can An Estate Plan Include?

An estate plan lets you set a roadmap for the future. It can encompass a variety of documents, including:

  • Wills: This fundamental document lets you outline what will happen with your assets when you pass away, as well as make important selections like who will be the personal representative of your estate.
  • Trusts: These are legal tools for managing assets during your lifetime and beyond. They can provide control, protection and potential tax benefits.
  • Powers of attorney: This allows you to grant someone you trust the ability to make decisions on your behalf if you no longer can.
  • Advance directives: With this, you can spell out what you want have happen regarding medical treatment if you are incapacitated.
  • Living wills: You can use this to specify your preferences regarding end-of-life care.

We recognize that every family in West Texas has its own particular needs. Our lawyer is ready to assist you in forming estate planning documents tailored to your individual circumstances and goals.
