Establishing Wills And Trusts That Protect Your Wishes

When a person dies in Texas, their loved ones will check to see if there is a will that discusses how property is to be handed down to surviving family and friends. While there may be some idea of which individuals will receive certain items, there may be some disagreements about how assets should be distributed. A will, trust or other estate planning documents can provide a family with the information they need to pass out the property accordingly.

At The Springer Law Firm, our attorneys are here to help you draft all the documents that are necessary as part of your estate plan, including wills and/or trusts. Our team will review your wishes, and discuss what we can do to ensure that they are carried out. We can provide you with the peace of mind in knowing that your family and friends are going to be provided for after you pass away.

A Personal Approach To Building Your Estate Plan

During the initial planning stages, we will help you compile a list of all of your property and assets that you wish to pass down. This ensures that we have a thorough accounting of your assets, and also makes it easy for your family to track down where items and accounts are located. Then, we talk about what you want to accomplish, and what we need to do to make that happen. When we are discussing your estate plan with you, we focus on many different issues, including:

  • Discussing which property you want to pass along to certain beneficiaries under your will
  • Helping you determine if you need a trust, whether it is revocable, irrevocable, charitable or special needs trust to transfer certain assets
  • Drafting and establishing the trusts that you wish to create

After you have created your plan, it is essential that you keep the document up to date. Any changes to your family, such as a divorce, remarriage or loss of a loved one, should prompt you to take a fresh look to make sure your estate plan remains current. If any revisions are necessary, our attorneys will help you make all necessary modifications to ensure your final wishes are able to be carried out properly.
