Fort Worth residents need to consider incapacity planning in their estate plans
Here at The Vermillion Law Firm, LLC, we take our commitment to our neighbors in Fort Worth to heart. Having an estate plan is important for you and your family because it gives you the chance to decide now how you want your property distributed after your death. It also allows you to engage in incapacity planning when your family will need the power to act on your behalf when you are unable to do so. Dallas estate planning can involve several different tools depending on your goals. But remember, incapacity planning is important to include, as well.
Incapacity Planning should not be overlooked
While you may not think it could ever happen to you, incapacity can be an unexpected consequence of an illness or accident. Incapacity can be physical, mental or both. It can be permanent or only temporary. Regardless of the nature of the incapacity, if you have an incapacity plan in place, it will be a lot less stressful on your family. In the legal sense, the term “incapacity” means the ability to understand the nature and consequences of legal proceedings. When it comes to estate planning, it usually refers to the inability to make your own decisions or manage your own affairs. Without a plan, you will likely be appointed a conservator or guardian.
