What If I Don't Have An Estate Plan?
The failure to plan your estate can have some severe consequences for those left behind.
- Without a will your family may be put through the expense of heirship determination. Your assets will be distributed according to Texas intestacy laws. A will can avoid this process.
- A death can bring confusion and grief, which can turn into conflict and then litigation. Your heirs may end up squandering your assets in legal fees and harming the family irreparably. You need a well-thought out Will.
- A well-planned will means your assets aren't spent in estate taxes and probate fees. Adrianne can help minimize fees and taxes.
- A Will means your loved ones will understand how to carry out your wishes after your death. Other estate planning documents, such as powers of attorney, can make your wishes clear in the event of incapacity.
- Without a knowledgeable plan, vulnerable members of your family may be left without support or could lose their entitlement to government assistance.
- Business assets and other valuable property may be wasted if left to beneficiaries who are unable to manage them. A trust may protect everyone involved.
