A will is a foundational estate planning document. A well-prepared will can save your family an enormous amount of headaches and heartaches in the future. Our Garden Ridge, TX will planning attorneys work closely with clients to help them draw up a will that is well-suited to fit their unique circumstances. Among other things, you may use a will to name an executor of your estate, name a guardian for a child, select your beneficiaries, and/or make funeral arrangements. Your will is always flexible. Should you need to amend or replace your will, our Texas estate planning lawyers are always ready to help.
Although every adult should have a will in place, it is not always the best vehicle for transferring assets. In some cases, the property can be better distributed through a trust. Some people have misconceptions about trusts — believing that they are only useful for extremely wealthy people. In reality, many families in Texas can benefit from creating a trust.
Trusts offer a number of different advantages, from the potential for increased efficiency to additional privacy. At Weisinger Law Firm, PLLC, our dedicated Garden Ridge, TX trust planning lawyers will help you determine if creating a trust is the right fit for you and your family. We firmly believe that there is no true one-size-fits-all solution in trust planning. Our estate planning lawyers will help you and your family establish the trust that best suits your needs.
Powers Of Attorney
An effective estate plan is one that covers every situation. While it is uncomfortable to think about, there could come a time where you become injured, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to manage your own affairs. Setting up powers of attorney will help to ensure that your health, safety, finances, and family are protected no matter what happens. There are many myths about what a power of attorney is and what it is not. If you have questions or concerns about powers of attorney, our Garden Ridge estate planning lawyers are here to help get you answers.
Guardianship is the formalized legal process by which one person assumes legal authority for another. A guardianship may be put in place for minors, or, should an adult become incapacitated, they may be placed in the care of a guardian as well.

If you have questions about setting up a guardianship for an adult or a child, please reach out to our Garden Ridge guardianship lawyers for assistance.
If your child or loved one has special needs, there are some additional issues that should be addressed as part of your estate plan.
