Estate planning can be important especially in a Community property state like Texas. It can get complicated to divide assets, when a person is married & has children, & they also have other children that are not children of the surviving spouse. The legal fees & inconvenience to divide a property between five children & a spouse can be tedious.  At that point a lot of people waive their rights to receiving any proceeds from an estate, just because it is not worth it, we see it happen all the time.

It is important to have an estate plan for your family after you pass, to carry out your wishes. Take a look at our services below to help you plan your estate.

Create a Valid Simple Will in Texas

If you die without a will, you will not be able to choose who inherits your money, real estate property, belongings, insurance, retirement benefits, or any of the other assets like jewelry & furniture that you have. Without a will, it is likely that your estate gets tide up in a lengthy court process that becomes incomplete like many other estates, where people die without a will. With a will, you can decide & determine what happens to your property & choose who executes your plan, to make sure it is distributed the way you intended.
A h&written will can be costly to uphold for your family. There are many loopholes which can invalidate this type of will. If you are planning your estate for your family, you should think of the tens, of thousands of dollars it can cost to determine your beneficiaries with only a h&written will, vs. making a clear plan for your estate & knowing the costs ahead of time. We can help you with that, & help you determine the best option for your family.

Affidavit of heirship

An affidavit of heirship can be used when someone dies without a will, & the estate consists mostly of real property titled in the deceased’s name. The affidavit is filed (“recorded”) with deed records in the county where the decedent’s real property is located. It does not transfer title to real property.
It is required to know all information, dates of birth, dates of marriages, divorces, all children, names & birthdays, & have two living witnesses, that will not benefit financially from the estate to confirm the truth of the documents.
