Last Will and Testament Lawyers in Katy
Draft an Enforceable Last Will and Testament With Our Texas Will Attorneys
It may seem like it should be a relatively simple undertaking to write your last will and testament, as you likely already have an idea of whom you want to leave your belongings after you pass. However, as the foundation of your estate plan, a will should be drafted by an experienced lawyer. You should reconsider going the DIY route for writing your will, as wills not drafted by legal professionals are often invalid and impossible to enforce.
- Estate planning is complex, and even though you can download forms off the internet, it’s easy to overlook certain details which could nullify the will you create.
- Without an enforceable will, it is likely your beneficiaries could get into heated disputes after you pass away.
- Without a valid will, your assets will be distributed according to state probate law, even if it goes against your previously stated wishes.
