ESTATE PLANNING FOR INDIVIDUALS & BUSINESS OWNERS
As you age and begin to acquire property, stocks, 401ks and other assets, you should consider creating a basic estate plan so your family’s livelihood and legacy can live on. Basic Texas estate planning documents include:
- Wills – legal document outlining which people or organizations you would like to leave your property to.
- Naming Guardianship of Minor Children – If you pass away before your children become adults, you can choose whom to provide and care for them. If your family includes a special needs child that is no longer a minor but needs specialized care, you may also appoint a guardian for them.
- Naming an Executor – Will executors are responsible for ensuring the terms of your will are carried out. These people should be unbiased, third-parties.
- Trusts – Most business owners, or individuals with a high net worth should consider creating living trusts. At Haley & Olson, PC, we utilize powerful estate planning tools such as Defective Grantor Trusts, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts and Charitable Remainder Trusts.
