Estate PlanningEstate Planning

Estate planning starts with the last will and testament. A common myth is that if I sign my will, I’ll die. The unfortunate reality is that we are all mortal, we will all die some day, and if we don’t sign a will of our own choosing, the State of Texas has one for us, and we may not like what it does. This is especially true where there are children of a prior marriage. The probate process is usually much more complex and expensive if the decedent has not executed a will. In most cases, the Estate must be probated within four years following the death of the decedent. Another important document that should be considered in conjunction with a will is the durable power of attorney, which may appoint an agent to represent the client in making both economic and health-care decisions in the event of the client’s disability. The directive to physicians, or “living will,” and various species of trusts are indispensable mechanisms for providing the client and his or her family with the peace of mind that comes with knowing their interests have been protected.
