The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing a lot of important issues into perspective and many Central Texans are taking this as an opportunity to discuss the prospect of estate planning with their family, especially as the death toll continues to rise. As difficult a topic as death is, we must all be prepared for the future to ensure our loved ones are cared for during this already difficult and uncertain time.
Now that you and your family have some extra time to have these important conversations, take a moment to talk about what should be addressed in your estate plan and what is most important for you to get in order. Doing so will allow you to get the most from your initial consultation with your estate planning attorney.
Planning for the Future During an Uncertain Time
Although many of us are experiencing some financial difficulties due to this terrible pandemic, if you wish to create an estate plan, you should not rely on online sites that offer minimal tools to accomplish this task. Oftentimes, these sites are one-size-fits-all and are ineffective in addressing a family’s unique needs. Hiring an estate planning attorney will ensure the document you create not only addresses these needs, but also works under state guidelines.
Texas is seeing a larger number of positive COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. With so much uncertainty about the future and when this deadly pandemic will come to an end, it is crucial to ensure that your loved ones are well taken care of, even in your absence. Everyone will rest easier knowing that this safety net is in place no matter what the future holds.

Our team understands the concerns clients may have regarding health and safety during these unprecedented times, so you can rest assured we will maintain social distancing guidelines, sanitize our tables, provide new pens, and wear masks to protect the wellbeing of everyone present.
