Appointment for Disposition of Remains

Contact Our Compassionate Estate Planning Attorneys to Ensure Your Wishes Are Respected

To ensure your estate plan is comprehensive, you may wish to include an appointment for disposition of remains, as outlined in the Texas Health and Safety Code 711.02. This document details your intentions for how you would like your bodily remains to be handled upon your death, as well as any funeral arrangements. This document is legally binding and names your agent who will carry out your wishes regarding any cemetery organization, cremation plans, desired funeral director or embalmer, and the funeral establishment. Without this document, Texas law has a list of who will be liable for the cost of interment, starting with the decedent’s surviving spouse, followed by his or her surviving adult children, either of the decedent’s surviving parents, his or her surviving siblings, and so forth. This sensitive information should be handled carefully, by an experienced estate planning attorney.

Our legal team at Hunt Law Firm is experienced in handling estate planning matters. We provide legal guidance on important matters regarding how you would like your property and assets to be distributed after you pass.
