When most people think about estate planning, they think about planning for death. While it is true that wills and trusts are designed to protect your assets and see that they are passed on to your beneficiaries, there is much more that can be done with estate planning in Texas. At The Lincoln Law Firm, PLLC, we want to protect you in life as well as death. That is why we encourage you to incorporate durable powers of attorney (POA) into your estate plan.
To schedule your consultation, call 832-478-6750. You may also fill out a contact form and someone from our firm will be in touch with you soon.
In The Event Of Illness Or Injury
It happens. People become ill or get injured to the extent that they are incapacitated for weeks or months. While they are in a hospital bed, who is taking care of their finances? Who is making decisions about medical care? If there is not a power of attorney in place, the family may become divided arguing over these issues.
By incorporating Houston powers of attorney into your estate plan, including medical and durable powers of attorney, you are assigning specific people to make decisions for you while you are unable to do so. There will be no room for disputes among your family members because you have already legally designated the person or persons to manage your medical and financial affairs in the event you are unable to. In the event that you pass away because of the illness or injury, the powers of attorney will lapse and the other components of your estate plan will take effect: the will and trust, if applicable.
We offer estate planning packages that include powers of attorney, because we know how important they are. Let us educate you about your options.
