Or perhaps your incapacity is prolonged, your mortgage and other bills are due, and your loved one don’t have access to your bank account to make payments. These […]

Estate planning is about much more than just a will or living trust. While many of your assets can pass to your loved ones through those documents, there are plenty more assets that cannot. These “non-probate” assets are ones that require you to name a beneficiary that will receive the assets when you pass, and include life insurance policies, annuities, 401k plans, IRAs, pension plans, stock options, and government benefit plans. Choosing who you name as a beneficiary might seem like an easy […]

So say your teenager goes off to […]

What is burial insurance? Also known as funeral or final expense insurance, burial insurance is a type of whole life insurance policy designed to cover common end-of-life expenses, such as funeral or cremation expenses and medical bills. Because the average cost of a funeral in Texas ranges from $10,000 to $15,000, having a burial insurance policy can help take financial strain off your loved ones. How does burial insurance work?

It seems the news cycle has a continuous supply of stories about disgruntled employees or injured third parties bringing eight or nine-figure lawsuits against their employers, neighbors, and business partners. We might have thought the days of frivolous litigation were over, but they are alive and well in this increasingly contentious world we live in. Opportunists abound. And the more you succeed, the more people want to take a piece of that success away from you. Whether it’s human nature, greed, or something […]

For many business owners, mention of the “B word” conjures up feelings of dread, frustration, and failure. Bankruptcy can be expensive, especially for small businesses, and despite the friendlier reorganization option that Subchapter V provides, the process itself can erode brand equity, stigmatize the company going forward, and damage relationships with vendors and customers.
