As mentioned previously on this blog, creating a comprehensive estate plan that covers both one’s end-of-life decisions and steps to be taken after one’s demise is an important step for Houston residents to take this year. Powers of attorneys are used to make essential financial and healthcare decisions if one is unable to do so. Additionally, one can avoid a situation where a conservator has to be legally appointed if they have a power of attorney in place. Similarly, having a will in place avoids the probate process.
When Houston residents lose someone they love, it puts grieving family members and loved in a tough spot. Not only are they trying to plan a funeral or move on with their lives, they also have to figure out what the deceased’s last wishes were with regards to their inheritance, the family house and even the fine china. If these directions were left in a will, it eases the decedent’s passing for everyone. If not, a lengthy and bitter legal battle may ensue where family members argue with one another over what their loved one would have wanted.
Probate can be a time-consuming and emotionally draining process, which is why going through it alone can be overwhelming. We understand that people want to move on with their lives quickly and not engage in bitter legal disputes, which is why we go through the probate process efficiently and handle any problems that may pop up.
