Many Texans die without a valid Last Will and Testament – and even more die without putting enough effort into estate planning.
Comprehensive estate planning should consider, at a minimum, a Last Will, an advance physicians’ directive (a “Living Will”), a medical power of attorney, a durable power of attorney, declaration of guardian, a HIPAA authorization, and others if there are minor children.
Have you been thinking about drafting a Last Will and Testament?
If you are thinking about drafting a Last Will and Testament, you should seek the assistance of an attorney in your area. Drafting a last will and testament can be complicated, but there are pertinent issues that must be addressed for it to be valid. While there may be other “short-cut” outlets available, a skilled and knowledgeable attorney can ensure that your assets and your loved ones are protected for the future. Don’t be caught without a WILL.
The Importance of a Last Will and Testament
A last will and testament can ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If a person dies without a Last Will and Testament, a court will decide how the assets are distributed according to intestacy laws. This is called dying ‘INTESTATE.’ To further protect your assets and your family, it would be wise to contact an attorney to help your draft your last will and testament. Don’t be caught without a WILL.
