Estate Planning is used to manage your property effectively while you are alive and preparing written instructions arranging for the passing of your property to your family and/or selected beneficiaries upon your death with as little fuss and expense as possible. Planning your estate may involve making gifts, buying insurance, and creating a will, living trust, health care directives, durable power of attorney for finances, and/or other documents.

Estate planning is a process which involves the creation of an original estate plan and updating this estate plan as circumstances change and the law evolves.


Through estate planning, you can determine:

  • How and by whom your assets will be managed for your benefit during your lifetime if you ever become unable to manage them yourself.
  • When and under what circumstances it makes sense to distribute your assets during your lifetime.
  • How and to whom your assets will be distributed after your death.
  • How and by whom your personal care will be managed and how health care decisions will be made during your lifetime if you become unable to care for yourself.
  • Who you want to handle the management of your property during your lifetime if you are not able to manage your property and who will handle your property and affairs after your death.

Many people mistakenly think that estate planning only involves the writing of a will or preparing a trust. Estate planning, however, can also involve financial, tax, medical and business planning. A will or trust is only part of the planning process; you will need other documents as well to fully address your estate planning needs.

It is also important to keep in mind that estate planning is not just for the rich or well off; everyone needs an estate plan.

What makes The Town of Flower Mound, Texas special:

Flower Mound was named for a 12.5-acre hill roughly 50 feet in height situated near the intersection of FM 3040 and FM 2499. The formation attracted early settlers' attention to the area and is often merely described as "The Mound." Part of the Texas Blackland prairies, The Mound is generally covered by big bluestem, little bluestem, and Indian grasses. Many varieties of flowers can grow on its slopes throughout blooming seasons, typically assisted by the water retained by gilgai formations. Currently surrounded by business and property development, The Mound is owned and maintained by The Mound Foundation, a non-profit private-public partnership. The group has promoted for a regulated burn on The Mound for several years, and it expressed relief when an unexpected New Year's Eve fire in late 2011 spurred the growth of wildflowers for the first time in years.

Flower Mound lies approximately 20 miles northwest of Dallas and 25 miles northeast of Fort Worth on the border between Denton and Tarrant counties. The town is located almost entirely in Denton County. Nevertheless, it has locations that extend into Tarrant County. It is positioned on the basin of the Trinity River in the Eastern Cross Timbers subregion in Texas. The town borders Lewisville to the east and a number of cities and towns to the north, consisting of Highland Village, Double Oak, and Bartonville.

Flower Mound's environment is categorized as humid subtropical; the city averages 233 sunny days per year and 79 days of precipitation.

After inhabitants utilized the site for religious camps throughout the 1840s, the Flower Mound area was first permanently populated in the 1850s; nevertheless, homeowners did not include until 1961.

It reached 50,702 in 2000, an average yearly increase of almost 13 percent each year throughout the 1990s, making it the nation's tenth fastest-growing community. [24] Between 2000 and 2002, Flower Mound was the ninth fastest-growing town in the United States with a population of more than 50,000, and its population continued to increase by around 5 percent each year between 2000 and 2005.
