“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.

A sole benefit trust is a helpful estate planning tool if your family has cross-generational support needs. If a senior with more than $2,000 in assets wants to apply for Medicaid - but also wants to provide for a disabled relative - a sole benefit trust may be a good choice.#estateplanning #solebenefittrust #weekslawfirm
