Decipher the Texas Estate Laws

Understanding estate planning and applying it to Texas law

Careful estate planning can mean financial security for your family and your business after your death. Estate plans take the form of wills or trusts. If you don’t have an estate plan set up, your loved ones will have no control over what happens to some of your important assets when you pass away.

An estate plan is the only way to make sure your loved ones have clarity about what you want to happen to your assets after your death. Trust Gonzalez Law, PLLC to be your estate planning attorney in Fort Worth, Texas.

Three important reasons to have an estate plan

  • 1. Preserve your assets. Setting up a specific plan for inheritances will provide for your children/loved ones for years to come.
  • 2. Proper distribution of your assets. Divvying up assets will ensure all loved ones are given the correct assets at the time of your passing.
  • 3. Less hassle and stress for loved ones. At such a sensitive time, your loved ones will appreciate there being no questions about asset allocations after your death.

Take an active role in your legacy

Neglecting to create an estate plan could be very risky. Your family could end up in probate court and be at the mercy of intestacy laws found in the Texas Probate Code, written by State legislators to provide uniform governance of all probate matters where no alternative plans of the Decedent where made.
