“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.

Myth: People who have been appointed a guardian over a minor will remain that person's guardian when they become an adult.

Fact: Guardianship over both children and adults requires a court order. However, they are different processes with different requirements and different court orders. When the child becomes an adult, the guardianship ends and will need to be reevaluated by the court.
