“Leaving A Loving Legacy”

OUR PRACTICE AREAS

Weeks Law Firm helps families plan for the care and financial security of their child or loved one with special needs

Estate planning is for every husband, wife, mother, father, grandparent, business owner, professional, or anyone else who has someone they care about, are concerned about providing responsibly for their own well being and for the well being of those they love, and for anyone who seeks to make a difference in the lives of others after they’re gone.

Guardianship is a legal process with a court-created relationship between a person who needs help (“proposed ward” or “ward”) and the person who gives help (“guardian”). A court decides if the person is not able to manage their personal or financial affairs due to a physical or mental condition.

Probate is a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets of a deceased person. Assets are distributed to beneficiaries in accordance to the instructions written in the person’s will, or according to Texas law if the person died without a will.

FAQ: What is a power of attorney?

A power of attorney gives one or more persons the power to act on your behalf as your agent. The power may be limited to a particular activity, such as closing the sale of your home, or be more general in its application.

The power may give temporary or permanent authority to act on your behalf, and may take effect immediately, or only upon the occurrence of a future event, usually a determination that you are unable to act for yourself due to mental or physical disability. The latter is called a “springing” power of attorney. A power of attorney may be revoked, but most states require written notice of revocation to the person named to act for you

FAQ: How can a living trust save on estate taxes?

Your estate will have to pay federal estate taxes if its net value when you die is more than the “exempt” amount at the time (your state may also have its own death or inheritance tax). If you are married, your living trust can include a provision that will let you and your spouse use both of your exemptions, saving a substantial amount of money for your loved ones.

A life estate often comes up in discussions of estate and Medicaid planning. It is a form of joint ownership that allows one person to remain in a house until his or her death, when it passes to the other owner. #estateplanning #lifeestate #weekslawfirm
