Who Needs An Estate Plan?

When you think of estate planning, you may have the impression that it’s a concern only for people who are older or actively dying. The truth, however, is that we all die and we never know what tomorrow will hold no matter our current age or health status. If you are a person of any age with wishes you want fulfilled or assets you want to leave behind or a family you want to have cared for, you need an estate plan. A comprehensive estate plan will help secure a stable future for your family and ensure that your intentions are carried through to the letter of the law.

What Does Estate Planning Entail?

Our knowledgeable Pearland estate planning lawyer will collaborate with you to create a plan that addresses the unique needs of you and your family. There are multiple aspects to estate planning, some or all of which might be relevant to you. When you work with Michelle E. Murphy, you will receive guidance on many options and services that go into an estate plan, including: 

  • Wills: Wills are the most basic and well-known aspect of the estate plan, and most everyone is familiar with the last will and testament, which is essential for the division of your assets and the bequeathing of any important property. In addition to a last will and testament, there are other wills – for example, joint wills, which can be created with the help of a spouse in order that both your wishes and property are accounted for. An important type of will that you will definitely want to create is a living will, which outlines your medical decisions in the event that you are incapacitated.
  • Trusts: Putting assets into a designated trust will ensure that your beneficiary receives their inheritance without the hassle and expense of probate. There are different types of trust, so discuss with our Pearland estate planning lawyer to discover which type will work best for you.
  • Guardianship: If you have minor children, you will be able to designate a care provider in the event you die or become incapacitated.
  • Power of attorney: In addition to your living will, designating someone with power of attorney will ensure that your medical decisions are respected in the event that you are too sick or injured to provide them yourself.
  • Estate tax planning: With the right guidance, you can be strategic when anticipating the taxes that your estate will owe, which will potentially save your beneficiaries time and money.

And more! Estate plans are as unique as the person who creates them, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and concerns when you schedule an appointment with Michelle E. Murphy.
