Did you know that if you have a minor child, and you die without a will, a probate court judge is going to choose who gets to finish raising your child? Did you know that, despite what people try to sell you, a living trust is almost never necessary to avoid probate in Texas? Even if you think you do not have enough property to justify having a will, you should talk to us. We’ll explain to you the advantages and disadvantages of a will, a general durable power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, and an advance directive (also called a living will). We can help you determine how best to protect your family and your assets if you become disabled or when you die.
Even though living trusts are normally not necessary in Texas if the primary purpose is to avoid probate, there may be other reasons to establish a living trust. There are also other types of trusts that may be helpful in your situation to protect your family or your assets.
