When you think about estate planning, the first thing that comes to mind is probably writing a will. A will is a critically important part of an estate plan—it lets everyone know your last wishes. You can use your will to accomplish a wide variety of things, from clearly explaining your desired funeral & burial arrangements to naming beneficiaries and distributing property. Writing a customized will does not have to be a complicated endeavor. Our Hill Country Village estate planning attorneys are ready to help you draft the right will for your specific situation. If you have any questions, we are more than happy to answer them during a free, no-obligation initial consultation.
Probate can be intimidating. In fact, it is a process that, to the greatest extent possible, many people try to avoid. That being said, probate does not have to be confusing and stressful. Our Bexar County, TX probate lawyers are here to walk you through every step of the probate process, making sure that you understand what is going on and taking action to protect your rights and interests. Whether you want to limit your own estate’s exposure to probate or you need to probate the estate of a loved one, our attorneys are here to help.
As important as it is to have a well-drafted will, it is not necessarily the most effective or efficient estate planning tool to distribute assets—at least not in every situation. For many families, trusts offer flexible and reliable asset protection. If you are considering setting up a trust for your child, your loved one, or a charity, our top-rated Texas trust planning attorneys are standing by, ready to help.
Powers Of Attorney
Imagine that an accident or illness suddenly renders you unable to care for yourself. What would happen? Does your estate plan provide the protection that you need? As difficult as this can be to think about, it is crucial that put the right legal framework in place to protect your safety and well-being. With two relatively simple legal documents, the durable power of attorney and medical power of attorney, you can give your trusted loved ones the tools that they need to make important decisions on your behalf.
Guardianship is a process whereby one person takes over the rights and responsibilities of another person. In Texas, the least restrictive alternative is favored in all guardianship cases—meaning an adult guardianship will only be put in place if it is deemed necessary to protect the best interests of the vulnerable/incapacitated person. We understand how emotionally raw and sensitive guardianship cases can be. If you have concerns about your rights and options, our Bexar County, TX guardianship lawyers are here to help.
Special Needs Planning
Special needs planning is one of the most complicated areas of estate planning law. Many legal professionals only have limited familiarity with the intricacies of special needs planning. Our Hill Country Village estate planning attorneys help families put together a legal structure that provides true, reliable protection to a vulnerable loved one. With a Special Needs Trust, you can leave money or property to the benefit of a special needs person without disqualifying them from the government benefits that they are entitled to receive. If you are leaving assets directly to a loved one with special needs, you may inadvertently harm their ability to get SSDI benefits, Medicaid coverage, or other social services.
