Estate Planning And Probate: An Overview
While it can be difficult to think about, having an estate plan in place is crucial. Without a will, trust, or other estate planning documents, your loved ones may be forced to make difficult decisions after you are gone. Tyler A. Harden, Attorney, P.C., has helped clients throughout Texas create estate plans that meet their wishes and relieves their loved ones of the burden of making choices about distributing assets.
Understanding The Importance Of Creating An Estate Plan
The purpose of an estate plan is to make sure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes and not according to Texas probate law. Without a well-constructed estate plan in place, a judge will decide who your heirs will be according to Texas law. From a simple will to an extensive collection of planning documents, there are many ways in which an estate plan can be built. In our initial meeting, we will discuss wills and trusts, as well as appointing a power of attorney, advance health care directives and other types of planning documents, such as a Transfer on Death Deed or “Ladybird Deed”. We also assist families in administering wills through probate or when a will is not present at the time of death, in working through the difficult process of settling the estate in probate court.
