What would happen if loved ones suddenly could not make decisions for themselves? Who would make these decisions? What kinds of decisions would they be able to make? These are overwhelming questions to think about, but they are important ones. Texas residents thinking about these questions may want to consider making an advance directive.
Texas residents may want to contact an estate planning attorney to help them create their advanced directive. An attorney will make sure that the advanced directive covers all necessary items and meets all legal requirements. An experienced estate planning attorney can also help with elder law issues, VA and Medicaid planning and other issues related to special needs trusts and powers of attorney. These legal documents can also play a crucial role for families planning for the health and financial futures of their loved ones.
