What is Estate Planning?
Whether you know it or not, you have an estate. Your estate is everything you own. It’s your car, your home, your real estate investments, your checking and savings accounts, personal investments including IRA and 401K, your business, your life insurance policies, even furniture and personal possessions.
No matter how large or small, everyone has an estate and benefits by consulting with estate planning attorneys.
What happens to your estate should be your choice.
Our goal at Davidge & Wright, L.P., your trusted estate planning attorneys in Denton, Texas, is to walk you through the estate planning basics and create a plan that you are comfortable with.
Why is Estate Planning Important?
While no one really likes to think about their own mortality, it is important to address the reality of what happens to your estate in the long run. It’s absolutely important to make plans now so that your family is not caught off-guard and unprepared. The best time to plan your estate is right now while you can think through your wishes clearly.
At Davidge & Wright, L.P., we can affordably help you plan for the most common estate issues and make sure your loved ones are prepared for the future. We’ve been helping our friends and neighbors in Denton, Texas, plan their estates for decades.
With our combined 50+ years of experience practicing law in Denton, we will gently walk you through the process and help give you the peace of mind you deserve.
And, as your life’s circumstances and family change and grow, we will amend your estate plan as needed to reflect your long-term wishes.
Estate planning is a fluid process which can be updated as your estate changes.
The biggest benefit of estate planning is the peace of mind you will gain by knowing your estate is prepared to transition easily after you pass on. It’s one of the most thoughtful and considerate things you can do for yourself and for those you love.
Let us help you put a properly planned plan in place – one that contains your instructions and will protect your family.
How Estate Planning Works:
Whether you are a single person with minimal assets or a blended family with multiple contingencies and potential issues to address, we help you find the best way to approach your estate planning.
After we meet with you personally in our downtown Denton law office, we’ll prepare the estate planning documents that best fit your life situation and goals. The final document will reflect your desires and maximize your tax planning as needed.
We will thoroughly explain what everything in your estate plan means to you and your loved ones. We don’t want you to be caught off guard when you need clarity the most.
Fees and Follow-up:
We have flat fee plans for most instances, and for an additional fee offer “account clean up” services to assist you in wrangling all of your various assets to insure proper titling, retitling and designation of payable on death beneficiaries.
This second step is an often forgotten, but highly imperative step that many clients neglect to complete without assistance. We can set up an appointment to review your estate documents every few years as needed.
