Experienced Estate Planning Attorneys to Serve You
You'll Enjoy Working with Our Estate Planning Attorneys
Call us at 800-929-1725 to talk with our estate planning attorneys. Wadler, Perches, Hundl & Kerlick offers you experienced, hard-working estate planning attorneys with sophisticated legal expertise and small-town Texas values to assist you. Whether you're interested in complex trust arrangements and generation-skipping transfers or just a simple will, our attorneys can help.
There are four basic documents that should be part of every estate plan -- a will, the financial and medical powers of attorney, a HIPAA release form, and a directive to physicians and family. If you've done no estate planning, you might start with those. However, if you have a substantial estate, if you own a business, or if you own real estate or mineral interests, your estate plan might need to be more complex.
Should Your Current Estate Plan be Checked?
If you moved to Texas from another state or if your family situation has changed because of divorce or marriage, you should review your estate planning documents with an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure that your estate plan will continue to reflect your wishes. Wills and other estate planning documents vary from state to state. A marriage or divorce can also impact your retirement and investment accounts and your estate plan.
