Dallas lawyers helping Texas residents to plan for medical care and the division of assets
Being prepared for your later years and having instructions in place for the distribution of your assets should not be seen as optional. While this may seem obvious to many, it is far too common that people have no directions in place for loved ones on how to deal with illness or how property should pass to one’s heirs. Common types of issues which can be handled through estate planning include:
- Preparing a last will and testament
- Setting up a trust to protect assets and their distribution
- Drafting a medical power of attorney
- Creating a financial power of attorney
- Dealing with the designation of guardians
Retaining a skilled lawyer to help you in these areas will ensure that problems do not arise at a later date. Too often people believe they have a plan in place to deal with these types of issues only to find out that a particular situation was not covered in the planning, that documentation was not properly completed, or that assets were not transferred to joint accounts or trusts as intended. In order to avoid this dilemma you should retain an attorney.
