Life is full of decisions. When it comes to estate planning in Texas, parents are often left making decisions that seem unfair. However, depending on individual circumstances, simply leaving everything to split evenly between children can be problematic.

Why do people in Texas choose a special needs trust?

A will and other estate planning tools can help people ensure that their estate is divided according to their wishes. For many people, tools such as a trust can help provide greater flexibility in regard to asset distribution. In some situations in Texas, a special needs trust may be necessary to ensure that a person who is unable to make decisions or care for him or herself receives life-long care.
