Estate Planning | Why you need an attorney


Estate planning is a necessary and important part of life. You want to protect your assets and ensure that your estate will be given to the people who matter most to you. A single wrong word in your Will can change the course of your estate and give your net worth to the wrong person.

Each state has their own specific laws about what can be said in documents involving Trusts, Wills, and Powers of Attorney. Texas estate planning lawyers can help you meet the specific Texas state laws for your estate. You might think that you can do it yourself but there are numerous formalities that have to take place when it comes to preparing and signing these estate planning documents. Doing this yourself is tricky and may result in a document that is invalid.

Estate planning is particularly helpful when the estate has numerous complexities. Maybe you are in your second marriage or you own several businesses. You might own real estate in a few states, have a disabled family member, or minor children. Perhaps you want to leave some of your estate to charity or you have numerous investment assets. All of these details require additional financial counseling and estate planning to make the best decisions for your specific estate planning needs.

You also want to have the peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of by being able to use your estate. If you try to save money by completing your own Will or drafting up your own estate documents, your dependents and beneficiaries may not receive what you have planned. A skilled Texas estate planning attorney will make sure that your estate plan is done correctly so that it will be carried out accordingly.
