FAQ: Estate Planning in Alvin, Texas
What if I am not in the right mental state when I sign my will?
Suppose you have a terminal illness that affects your memory or ability to make decisions. In that case, you are not in the right mental state to execute a will. This is also true if you sign a will under duress. The will is automatically voided if you sign it without testamentary ability. It can’t be relied upon for instructions to distribute property. Contact an experienced Texas estate planning attorney to ensure that you follow the requirements adequately.
Do my assets have to pass through probate?
An estate planning attorney can help you properly plan by placing a sufficient portion of assets in trusts, effectively lowering the probate assets to the necessary amount of $75,000. This would allow your loved ones to avoid the probate process, as funds placed into a trust are no longer legally “owned” by the person who established it.
How often should you revisit your estate plan?
Your estate plan should reflect your wishes at all times. However, your wishes can change every so often. Maybe you no longer want to list someone as a beneficiary, or maybe you want to include assets you acquire as a part of your estate plan. It is a good idea to examine your estate plan every three to five years to be sure it still reflects your wishes.
