Setting up a Living Will - Texas

Empower Your Healthcare Decisions

Why a Living Will?

At Burch Law, we believe that preparing a Living Will—legally known as a Directive to Physicians is a profound way to assert control over your medical care in times when you might not be able to voice your preferences. This document plays a pivotal role not only in managing your healthcare wishes but also in providing clear guidance to your loved ones during challenging times.

Take Charge of Your Medical Future

A Living Will allows you to outline specific instructions for medical treatment if you become incapacitated and cannot communicate your wishes due to an illness or injury. Whether it's decisions about life support, invasive surgeries, or other critical medical interventions, a Living Will ensures that your preferences are known and respected. The clarity it provides can be immensely comforting to your family, relieving them from the burden of making these difficult decisions on your behalf.

Understanding the Differences: Living Will vs. Living Trust

What Sets Them Apart?

At Burch Law, we recognize the importance of understanding the distinct roles and benefits of each estate planning tool. Here’s how a Living Will and a Living Trust differ, and why each might be crucial in safeguarding your legacy:

Purpose and Application

A Living Will, primarily addresses your healthcare preferences in dire circumstances. It activates only if you are incapacitated and unable to communicate, guiding your medical treatment based on your predetermined wishes.

A Living Trust, on the other hand, is focused on asset management and preservation. Created during your lifetime, it helps manage your assets efficiently and ensures they are distributed according to your wishes, bypassing the potentially lengthy probate process.

Impact on Your Legacy

The Living Will ensures that your healthcare decisions are respected, providing peace of mind to you and clarity to your loved ones during difficult times. It speaks when you cannot, safeguarding your personal dignity and medical wishes.

The Living Trust offers a comprehensive approach to estate management. Not only does it cover the financial aspects, but it also looks after your well-being and the timely support of your beneficiaries without court interference.

Why Both Are Essential

Comprehensive Protection: Together, a Living Will and a Living Trust provide a full spectrum of protection for both your personal and financial affairs.

Empowered Decision-Making: Equip yourself with both documents to truly be the hero of your own story—ensuring that all aspects of your legacy are handled according to your exact wishes.

Tailored Strategy: At Burch Law, we help you integrate both tools into your estate plan, creating a tailored strategy that reflects your life’s values and goals.
