Son excluded from hairdresser's vast fortune

We have written before about how important it is for people in Houston and beyond to make their wishes known and to document them before their death. Estate planning not only prevents prolonged legal disputes. It also allows people to rest easy knowing that their loved ones will be the recipients of valuable assets when they die.

Protecting the money that is to be handed down to beneficiaries

Many people in Houston and beyond want to pass down valuable assets to their children. Therefore, it is important to make estate planning decisions and to put them in writing. For instance, creating a will is one way to be sure family members receive money and other important personal items.

Estate plans can prevent heated disputes between family members

Dealing with family members can sometimes be challenging. Families may have disagreements about holiday gatherings and birthday celebrations. Family members may hold different political beliefs, which can lead to interesting dinner table conversations. In most of these instances, though, disagreements can be settled in a timely manner.

Preparing for the future by creating a living will

Whether you live in Houston or elsewhere, thinking about your death can be scary. Most of us would rather not think about how we will spend our last days and weeks. Unfortunately, no one has a crystal ball. Health scares and serious accidents can come out of nowhere.

Establishing a revocable trust

Starting a conversation about an estate plan can be a difficult task, especially when there are so many options out there for you to consider. That is why discussing the various options such as revocable trusts with an attorney practiced in Texas estate planning should be one of your first steps.
