    Wills and trusts make sure that your assets will be distributed as you have made arrangements in your will.

    Avoid Family Feuds after you’re Gone

    Protect your family from ugly and expensive battles over your assets when you are gone. Choose how to distribute your assets among heirs in the event of your premature death.

    With wills & trusts, you leave behind only assets for your family and not feuds

    It is better to invest a little now to avoid heavy expenses in the future.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is the difference between a will and a trust?

    A will is a legal document that states your wishes regarding how your estate will be managed and distributed after you have gone. A will:

    • Needs to go through probate after the death of the testator
    • Covers all the assets of the testator’s estate
    • Comes in effect on the demise of the testator
    • Can be revoked anytime before the death of the testator

    A trust is a fiduciary relationship in which you grant another party the authority to manage your assets. A trust is active the day you create it. A trust:

    • Need not go through probate when the grantor dies
    • Covers specific asset, as stated in the deed
    • Comes in effect on the transfer of asset to the trustee
    • Does not go through probate
    • Can be revoked—depending on the type of trust

    You can choose will, trust, or both according to your needs.

    2. Who should I tell about my will?

    You can consider informing your:

    • Lawyer
    • Next of kin
    • Other close friends and relatives
    • Any responsible person for helping you manage your assets
    • The executor of your estate
    3. Which one is better for me—will or trust?

    It is usually better to go with the trust since it not only keeps the transfer process in line but also does not have to go through probate. A will needs to go through probate post the testator’s death, causing frustration and expenses for the family/heirs.

    4. Who will inherit my assets if I die without a will?

    In the case of your death without a will, the probate court will execute the distribution of your assets as per the local “intestate succession” laws.

    It is not advisable to leave things to chance, especially if you have considerable accumulated wealth. Talk to one of our will and estate planning attorneys in Texas and make a well-thought-out decision. Contact us here.

    5. Can I make changes to my will?

    Yes, you can. This can be done as per your will and/or as per the change in laws or life events like marriage and divorce.
