Estate Planning Archives

Protecting your children's trusts from divorce

Texans often work with their estate planning attorneys to structure trusts so that they can pass on family assets to their children. However, if those children and their spouses divorce, they often don't want the spouse to get a portion of those assets in the settlement. They want the money to stay in the family -- not to be split with a spouse who has gone their own way.

Using your estate plan to direct your end-of-life care

Here in Texas, as in the vast majority of states, it's illegal for anyone, including doctors, to help a person take their own life -- even if there's no hope of recovery, they're in considerable pain and the end is imminent. Whether it's called euthanasia, assisted suicide or mercy killing, Texas law prohibits "any act or omission other than to allow the natural process of dying."

Don't include these items when making your will

The creation of a last will and testament is very difficult for some. Acknowledging death is something that a lot of people never come to grips with in life. It can be so difficult for some that they fail to create a will and leave their family in a lot of legal issues upon their death. If you are ready to create a will in Katy, Texas, here are some items you should never include.

A durable power of attorney watches out for your best interests

If you were to fall ill and be unable to speak for yourself, who would you have make decisions for you? If you don't have an answer to that question or are wary of who might make decisions on your behalf, it's time to look into a durable power of attorney.

Is adult adoption a good way to guarantee asset distribution?

There are times when an adult adoption is important, like if you need to take care of a relative with a disability or want to make sure someone you aren't related to is able to obtain trust funds without those funds going to your friends or family members first. The trouble is that some adult adoptions won't protect the person you care about in the case of your death, and they may not help him or her obtain the assets you wanted to leave behind.
