We want to empower you to make the right decisions for your situation. You can count on us to provide reliable guidance based on a thorough understanding of Texas estate planning law.
Basic Estate Planning Tools
Everyone should have a basic estate plan that includes, at minimum:
- A will indicating how they want their property to be distributed
- An advance directive and medical power of attorney for health care
- A power of attorney for financial matters
These tools will provide the protections you need in the event of an incapacitating injury or illness. Additionally, they will give your loved ones clarity and legal authority on how to proceed in accordance with your wishes.
After the death of a loved one, probate proceedings are often necessary for resolving their financial and property affairs. A personal representative of their estate will be responsible for numerous tasks required to administer the estate, from filing taxes and preparing accountings to settling debts and navigating the court process.
It’s always wise to have a lawyer for this process. You shouldn’t have to shoulder the weight of handling it alone. Reach out to our attorneys for guidance.
