How a Jones & Hartman Probate and Estate Planning Attorney Can Help
If you die without leaving a will, a probate court will distribute your assets according to Texas state law. During probate all assets will be gathered, all of the decedent’s bills will be paid, and the court will distribute remaining assets. Texas law sets out how remaining assets are divided among your surviving spouse, children, siblings, or parents.
The probate process can be confusing and lengthy, and cause added strain to loved ones during a time when they are vulnerable. Developing an estate plan will save your loved ones from unnecessary pain and suffering.
If you wish to pass assets on to grandchildren, stepchildren who were never formally adopted, close friends, or a favorite charity, you need to prepare a will that dictates who should receive what after your death.
