The last will and testament can protect a parent's minor child

A family with young children is one that needs some basic estate planning. In Texas and throughout the country, estate planning is often looked at as simply a process to provide for the disposition of one's assets after death. That approach ignores some vital preparatory tasks that should be put in place to protect and make more secure the future of minor children. New parents can make a last will and testament in which the care of their young children is specified in case the parents should die by some unforeseen tragedy.

Texas care planning: What is a DNH order?

Most people really do not like to give a lot of thought to how, when and where they want to die. Unfortunately, at some point, this is something for which one may want to prepare. When going through their care planning efforts, Texas residents who do no want to spend their last days in a hospital room may want to consider DNH orders.

POA, living will or both?

Getting a full estate plan together can take quite a bit of work. A lot of that has to do with figuring out what really needs to be included. For example, does one need a power of attorney, living will or both? Some Texas residents may not really know what the difference is between these documents to really make an informed decision.

Medicaid planning is not so simple

No one wants to end up in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, but it happens. When it does, figuring out how to pay for it can be a bit of a nightmare. Many people in Texas and elsewhere end up turning to Medicaid in order to pay their living and care costs. This is something for which they can plan, but Medicaid planning is not all that simple when the government is weighing what to do with the program.
