Estate planning & generational wealth management at Avidian
At Avidian, we can work with you to foster the wise stewardship of your wealth by minimizing probate expenses and estate taxes. Furthermore, we can create sound structures that aim to protect your wealth for future generations. In particular, we specialize in taking the many elements of estate planning in Houston and making sure that each part contributes to and/or meets the goals of an overarching plan. The various elements of estate planning frequently include:
- Your assets
- Your will
- Your trusts* (revocable, irrevocable, multigenerational, charitable, etc.)
- Your beneficiaries
- Your desires for gifts
- Your life insurance policies
- Tax laws (incl. tax exclusions and gift taxes)
- Probate laws
- 529 plans
- Business succession plans
- Business merger and acquisition plans
Note: Trusts and wills should be created by and/or in conjunction with an attorney. While Avidian does not create these documents, we can work closely with your attorney to make sure all records remain up-to-date and in-keeping with your goals.
Depending on the specifics of your family and your goals, your estate plans may include additional contingencies for marital agreements, business plans, guardianship plans/special needs trusts, etc.
Just like no family is the same, no estate plan should be a carbon copy of another. So if you’re wondering, “What do I need for estate planning?” rest assured that Avidian will help you designate which aspects of estate planning will be important to you, your family, and your goals.
