Diligent Estate Planning Services

Wills and trusts are important tools for estate planning. A will can be a simple one-page document or lengthy and complex, depending on the extent and nature of the wealth to be passed on and the objectives of the client. In addition to a standard will, a variety of different trusts can be used to serve specific needs. For example, you can createa living trust to hold your assets in trust during your lifetime and then pass them onto your designated beneficiaries after death. Trusts can either be revocable or irrevocable.

A living trust allows you to:

  • Retain control over assets during your lifetime
  • Set up management of your assets in the event you are incapacitated
  • Avoid probate for all assets in the trust
  • Pass assets onto beneficiaries as you direct
  • Decide how and when assets will be distributed, including provisions that can protect from failed marriages, imprudent and immature beneficiaries, and improper and undue influence on a surviving spouse.

A living trust allows you to place your assets in the trust and name a trustee to manage the assets. In most cases, you are the trustee during your lifetime and the document names a successor trustee. After your death, this trustee will manage the trust and ensure the assets are distributed to your intended beneficiaries. Our Sugar Land estate planning lawyers can help you create a will and set up any trusts that best serve your goals.

Guidance through the Probate Process

Probate is the procedure of bringing a will into effect and settling an estate. The executor named in the will must gather and value all assets and property, pay any bills and taxes, and distribute the assets to the beneficiaries named in the will.

Examples of smaller estates and assets that are not subject to probate include:

  • Estates that fall below the threshold
  • Assets owned by joint tenancy with right of survivorship
  • Payable or transfer on death accounts
  • Accounts, retirement assets, and life insurance policies with designated beneficiaries

Our Sugar Land estate planning and probate attorney can answer your questions and advise you through the probate process from start to finish, keeping your best interests in mind along the way.
