Ensuring Your Wishes Are Carried Out the Way You Intended

Don’t put off estate planning because you think you do not have enough assets, think you are not old enough, or think that you have enough time. Otherwise, you are leaving your family to pick up the pieces in the event of your death or incapacitation. Remember, without a proper estate plan, upon death your assets will be distributed according to the Texas probate laws, and there will be nothing your loved ones can do about it unless you have a proper estate plan in place. There is a science to determining how best to draft a will and manage risk. Bradford L. Atkinson & Associates, PLLC can provide you with the legal advice and cost-saving tips you need to prepare your estate and ease the burden on your loved ones after your death.

When a Loved One Dies

The most important fact to keep in mind is that a testator or executor is preserving a legacy of wealth for the heirs and beneficiaries, and being named an executor is just the beginning. Generally, the executor has four years from the date of the estate owner’s death to file for probate. Usually, if the executor doesn’t file the will for probate within the given time period, the laws of intestacy will determine how the estate is to be distributed. Estate planning can help ensure that the estate is transferred to the right people and organizations pursuant to your wishes rather than based strictly on your descendants.

Whether or not the decedent died with a will, an application for probate will need to be filed with the court to properly transfer property to the beneficiaries. Since the executor has important duties to the beneficiaries and heirs of the estate, it is important to have an experienced Conroe probate attorney who can advise you through the probate process. The complexities that can be presented in a probate process can be difficult, especially when there is no will. The Texas Estate Code details very specific steps to follow during the probate process. The court will appoint a person to be responsible for administering the estate. The probate process can be a daunting and overwhelming experience. However, Mr. Atkinson can help you with all your probate and estate planning needs.
