A will is the document that indicates your directives and desires regarding the disposition of your assets after your death. Not only those who have reached certain age need to have a will. Death is a natural part of life and can impact our families at any time. Having a will is essential even if you do not have a large estate and if you have a substantial estate it is a document that you cannot afford not having.
I will provide you with my knowledge in preparing a simple will that will cover the basics or a tax-planned will for those who have a large or considerable estate.
Although you may think you don’t need to plan for your death because you have a small estate, you need to consider that you may own equity in your home, you might receive an inheritance in the future, and above all you may have children. Remember, when you draft a will you are making your wishes known, and you not only dispose of the property that you own now but also any property that you may own at the time of your death.
Even if you are happy with how the Texas intestate provisions will divide your estate, if you do not leave a will you won’t be able to let the Probate Court and your family know:
  • who you would like to be the guardian of your minor children
  • who you want to administer any property that you leave for minor children
  • who you want to take care of your estate, divide your most precious possessions which sometimes are not of monetary value
  • who you would like to be in charge of administrating your estate
A will is more affordable than most people think. Please call my office for a will consultation, give me the opportunity to discuss your options with you.
