What is Estate Planning
Even if you are young or healthy, there is no way to predict the future. Estate planning is much more than just having a will or trust. Without an estate plan, the intestacy laws of the State of Texas determine who will inherit your property. Most of the time, it’s exactly who you would leave your property to anyway. However, there is so much more to consider other than who inherits your property. That's why we recommend working with an experienced Conroe estate planning attorney.

Why is Estate Planning Important?
There are countless reasons creating an estate plan is important, but the top reasons include:
- Avoiding chaos / discord among those left behind
- Minimizing estate taxes
- Avoiding probate
- Protecting children from mismanaging their inheritance
- Asset protection for beneficiaries
- Concerns about outliving their retirement
- Asset protection for yourself
- Providing for a special needs family member
- Ensuring that philanthropic / charitable gifting goals are met
- Business formation and entity planning
- Coordination of beneficiary designations on life insurance and retirement plans with your estate plan
- Recent marriage / divorce or other change in personal life circumstances
In larger estates, estate planning is extremely important in minimizing estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes. The IRS sets limits on how much each person can gift during their lifetime or pass at death without taxing the estate. Proper planning using testamentary trusts inside your will can reduce the potential estate tax liability for your estate, which means more of your wealth is passed on to future generations.
