Avoiding common mistakes of an estate executor

Taking on the role of an estate executor may sound like an honor, but many in Texas soon learn that the job is far from glorious. While it is certainly humbling to find one trustworthy enough to handle one's final wishes, it is also time-consuming and can be frustrating. In addition, by taking on this responsibility, an estate executor may also face legal challenges regarding some of the common probate mistakes.

Common misconceptions about estate planning

It is unlikely that most Texas residents have given much thought to how family members and loved ones will be affected after their death. However, it is a subject that needs to be addressed to ensure that someone's assets and property are distributed exactly as desired. While many may believe that estate planning is only needed for the wealthy, it can be a valuable process to help avoid family conflicts. Financial experts hope to convey the need for comprehensive estate plans by shattering some commonly held misconceptions.

Address long-term care needs in estate planning

Many Texas residents and others across the nation are caring for elderly parents. A frequent topic is likely to be the difficulties experienced in finding quality care at an affordable cost. The reality is that everyone is aging and if life expectancies continue to increase, more people will need long-term care, not only for parents, but for themselves.
