Informing your estate lawyer about health issues

Even though a large portion of Texas citizens do not commit to estate planning, many residents are heavily encouraged to do so that their property can end up in the right hands after unpredictable circumstances. Part of why most Texans refuse to begin estate planning is because they do not want to think about their death and instead desire to focus on the present and near-future.

The fiduciary role of a personal representative

Being named the personal representative of a Texas estate comes with many responsibilities. While anyone can make a mistake, serious errors in judgment that negatively affect the assets of the estate could lead to a lawsuit. In fact, a personal representative may be held personally liable for the damages the error caused. 

Understanding your role as an estate administor

Recently, one of your family members has asked if you would be interested and willing to be an estate administer. At first thought, you feel like this would be an invaluable opportunity to support someone you love, but you also want to make sure you are making a good and well-informed decision. At Doehring & Doehring Attorneys at Law, we have helped many families in Texas to learn about the legalities of creating, implementing and executing a well-thought estate plan. 

What is an irrevocable life insurance trust?

If you are a Texan unfamiliar with estate planning, you may not be familiar with the term "irrevocable life insurance trust." According to FindLaw, an irrevocable life insurance trust is a life insurance policy managed by a designated trustee who distributes benefits to your heirs after your death according to the terms that you specify when creating the trust. Once you have successfully created an irrevocable trust, you can no longer change it, nor can your trustee or anyone else.
