Estate Planning from Your Plano TX Probate Attorney
Estate planning done by a good probate lawyer is necessary to make sure that your final wishes are carried out and your estate is divided the way that you want it to be. Failing to make a last will and testament can make the probate process long, difficult and cause hard feelings amongst family members and loved ones. A Plano probate attorney can help take worry off of you and stress off of your loved ones by sitting down with you planning for the dispersal of your estate.
Probate law practice can be very complicated. An accounting must be made of all the estate's assets and debts, and probating an estate generally takes about a year. Because the probate process is so time consuming, it's not fair to your loved ones to leave it up to them to handle. Estate planning needs to be managed by an experienced Plano probate attorney who can help you decide how to divide your assets amongst your heirs and explain to you how estate tax will affect your heirs.
There are often harsh feelings amongst surviving family members concerning the distribution of assets, which includes money, real estate, vehicles and personal belongings. A properly prepared last will and testament will ensure that your loved one who needs financial support gets the money you want them to have, that your relative who lives with you can stay in their home, that your grandchildren get the personal mementos that you want to leave them and even that your beloved pets are given to the person you trust to care for them just like you do. A probate lawyer can also help you make arrangements for the care of minor children or disabled dependents who rely on you. If you have minor children or other dependents, you owe it to them to arrange for their care in event they outlive you. Making decisions about your estate now can save your loved ones from stress and heartache down the road.
After you have visited a probate law practice, met with an attorney and made your will, make sure to keep it in a safe place and inform your executor where it is and who your attorney is. Your executor and your probate attorney can then work together to carry out your wishes.
