Wills Make Sense For People At All Income Levels

The idea that only wealthy people need a will is simply wrong. A simple will is very affordable for most people and allows you to decide who will get your money, property and other assets when you are gone instead of giving that power to a judge. If you die without a legally filed will, the court distributes your assets according to Texas law and the chances of arguments among your heirs dragging out the process and souring relationships greatly increases.
At the Law Offices of Paula R. Moore, I will discuss the benefits of preparing a will and how it can benefit your family and other loved ones. My goal is to ensure that your estate planning documents thoroughly and accurately convey your wishes. Part of that planning is likely to include creating a power of attorney that allows you to name a person of your choice to make decisions for you if you should become unable to make decisions for yourself. To discuss your estate planning needs, contact my law firm by filling out my online contact form or calling 817-332-2300.
Changing An Existing Will To Reflect Life Changes
As time goes on, people come and go from your life and property and other assets are bought and sold. It is very common for people to revise their wills as their life circumstances change. Changing a will is a delicate process that can cause disputes during estate administration if it is not done correctly. If you are of sound mind and understand the impact of your decisions, I can help update your will to designate a new heir, reallocate assets and convey other changes.
Having A Will Can Ease The Probate Process
The probate process can be more difficult and stressful when someone dies without creating a proper estate plan. In fact, bitter conflicts often arise when there is no will or power of attorney for the deceased. A legal and valid will can help ensure that your wishes are known and make it easier for the executor of your estate to distribute assets accordingly.
