Five things to consider when estate planning

When creating an estate plan, you will begin to think about many things. This includes the will execution process. Although you will be gone, you don't want to leave your family in a bad situation.

While every person has the right to create the estate plan that they feel is best for them and their family, there are some details that everybody should taken into consideration. Here are five aspects of an estate plan to think about:

-- Will. Without this, it is very difficult to guarantee that your estate ends up in the right hands.

-- Living will. With this in place, your medical team will know what to do in the event that you are placed on life support.

-- Durable power of attorney. This gives another person the power to make decisions on your behalf if you are incapacitated.

-- Statutory power of attorney for health care purposes. If you don't have the ability to make decisions related to medical treatment, such as due to being injured in a motor vehicle accident, you want to know that the right person is able to step in and do so on your behalf.

-- HIPPA release. With this, your medical team and medical facilities have the right to discuss your condition, diagnosis, and treatment with other people, such as your family.

These are just a few of the many things you should consider when estate planning. If you don't know where to go next, our website can help. You can learn to make the right decisions by visiting our "College Station Estate and Probate Attorney" webpage.
