Considerations in Estate Planning

Estate planning requires that you consider and answer several questions.

When you begin the process of estate planning, ask yourself:

      • What assets do I have, and what is their approximate value?
      • What individuals or organizations do I want to receive my assets? Do I want to give them away while I am still alive or wait until after my death?
      • Who do I trust to manage these assets during my lifetime if I can’t or if management is necessary after my death?
      • Who do I want to take care of any minor or dependent children if I can’t?
      • Who should make decisions about my finances and medical care if I can’t?
      • When I die, do I want my remains to be cremated, scattered, buried, or donated?

Areas of Estate Planning

Helotes Estate Planning LawEstate planning involves several different areas. Each is unique, and our attorney can help guide you through each area so that you understand its importance and your options.

Last Will and Testament

Drafting a last will and testament lets you choose who inherits your assets after your passing, guardians for your children if they are minors at the time of your passing, and name an executor to carry out your wishes.

A last will and testament is the most crucial part of an estate plan. Attorney Fiegel can provide you with all your options for what to include in your last will and testament.

Living Will

A living will dictates what happens while you are still alive. Through a living will, you can decide the type of care you want if you need medical treatment and can’t make those decisions for yourself.

For example, some people have strong religious beliefs about being resuscitated or receiving a blood transfusion. Others may not want to go to the hospital for care. They can choose to note these desires in their living will.

Healthcare Power of Attorney

A healthcare power of attorney addresses the same medical treatment issues. However, rather than putting your choices and preferences in a legal document, you name another person who will make those decisions for you if you can’t make them yourself.

Usually, this person is a spouse, another family member, or a close friend. If you become incapacitated and can’t make or verbalize your decisions for yourself, your healthcare power of attorney will have the legal right to act on your behalf.

Financial Power of Attorney

By selecting a financial power of attorney, you choose a trusted agent to take financial actions on your behalf. Instead of being in charge of healthcare decisions, this person will manage your finances.

For instance, you can provide them with specific access to accounts to help ensure your bills and mortgage stay current if you cannot execute the payments yourself. This person can be the same as your healthcare power of attorney or someone else; it’s up to you.


A trust lets you put aside money and other assets for named people or organizations (typically charities). Trust accounts aren’t subject to the lengthy and drawn-out legal process of probate court.

With the help of a trust, your heirs can inherit what you want them to faster and without as much hassle. Your knowledgeable Helotes estate planning attorney can establish a trust and discuss its benefits.

Is Estate Planning Expensive?

Estate Planning in HelotesSome people shy away from estate planning because they believe it will cost them a lot of money. Attempting to plan your own estate to save money now can cost your family more later. It may also have consequences that you didn’t realize or understand.

An experienced Helotes estate planning attorney can provide crucial guidance and peace of mind that they correctly prepared your documents to meet your objectives and the standards of the current state and federal laws. They can also inform and update you if the laws change.

If your estate plan is out of date or doesn’t follow the law, contentious and challenging probate and estate administration can ensue upon your passing.
