Wills simplified for your convenience
Although we do not like to think about it, every one of us will eventually pass on. Also, there is a chance that your health will deteriorate to the point where you may want to make health care decisions ahead of time, or designate someone to make them for you. For your own peace of mind, you should take care of these matters ahead of time, so that when you aren’t here to make them, your wishes will be carried out.
If you die without a will, your estate will be distributed to certain people, according to a set formula by the State of Texas. Don’t leave this distribution to chance. You can decide ahead of time which specific items you want to leave to specific people, or exclude people, who would otherwise receive your property, from receiving it. You may have certain conditions in mind for people to receive your property, or to establish a trust for minor children. You may also wish to leave specific instructions on how you would like your funeral or memorial service to be, or how you wish your remains to be disposed.
In the event you are incapacitated in the future, and are unable to make medical decisions on your own, you may also consider drafting an Advanced Directive (also known as a “living will”) or a Durable Power of Attorney. An Advanced Directive is a legal document where you can designate that in certain situations, you would not like to be left alive, or have your doctor perform extraordinary measures to save your life. A Durable Power of Attorney enables you to designate a loved one to make these decisions on your behalf, should you be unable to make them.
We will draft these documents to your specifications, and provide the means to properly execute them, so that you can have the peace of mind knowing your desires will be implemented.
Properly draft a will and protect your future.
