A will is a foundational part of a comprehensive estate plan. With a clear, well-drafted, valid will in place, you can go a long way towards saving headaches, frustration, and potential conflict for your family. Among other things, a will can be used to select an executor for your estate, put funeral & burial instructions in place, provide an inventory of all important assets, and distribute property to your beneficiaries. We help people in Hollywood Park, TX draft wills that are designed for their unique circumstances.
In Texas, the first step in the probate process is to determine if there is a will. When a will exists, it must be submitted to the appropriate probate court and confirmed as valid. If no will exists, then a person’s estate will be settled in accordance with the intestacy rules under state law. Going through probate can be complicated, even overwhelming. We assist clients in Hollywood Park, TX with all aspects of probate—from helping to guide you through the process to handle any dispute that might arise.
One of the most common and misleading estate planning myths is that trusts are only meant for the rich. In reality, trusts are among the most useful estate planning tools out there. Many middle-class people in Hollywood Park, TX can utilize trusts to achieve their financial goals and provide true security to their loved ones and family members. If you have questions about trust planning, our legal team will address your concerns and help you understand your options.
Powers Of Attorney
Do you know what would happen if you were unexpectedly incapacitated or otherwise unable to manage your own affairs? Although it can be extremely uncomfortable to think about, it is important to have a proper legal structure in place to protect yourself. Setting up powers of attorneys—whether a durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, or both—is an excellent place to start. We can help you give a trusted loved one the tools they need to protect you, no matter what happens. If you have any questions about powers of attorney, please do not hesitate to call our Hollywood Park estate planning lawyers for help.
A guardianship is a legal process through which a person takes over the rights and responsibilities of a vulnerable person. Guardianships may be established over both minors, individuals with special needs, and incapacitated adults. In Texas, guardianships are complicated and highly sensitive. Our attorneys work tirelessly to assist Hollywood Park families involved in complex guardianship cases. If you have any questions about obtaining guardianship for your loved one or your legal rights, please do not hesitate to contact our legal team for guidance.
Special Needs Planning
Special needs individuals need and deserve specialized attention in estate planning. Did you know that traditional gifting of money, assets, or property to a special needs child or loved one could actually do more harm than good? Sadly, if not structured properly, a financial gift could disqualify them from receiving Medicaid or Social Security benefits. Fortunately, there are estate planning options available. At Weisinger Law Firm, PLLC, our Hollywood Park estate planning lawyers have extensive experience with special needs planning. We can help you create a Special Needs Trust (SNT) that will both offer real protection and preserve your loved one’s eligibility for benefits.
