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.

Benefits of Having a Last Will and Testament 

The benefits of having a last will and testament are numerous. Many people feel a sense of peace after having written a will, knowing that their loved ones will be taken care of after they pass. 

A valid will can do the following:

  • Name your intended beneficiaries for your assets and property
  • Name your preferred guardians for any minor children
  • Name the executor of your will
  • Provide instructions for how any outstanding taxes or debts should be paid

At Hunt Law Firm, we help our client with important aspects of estate planning, and draft well-written, detailed wills that meet Texas requirements. We ensure your peace of mind by helping you draft an estate plan that is personalized for your needs.

Updating Your Will After Divorce in Texas

After the divorce is finalized it’s important that you update your will or else your assets may be distributed to your ex-spouse. Below are the steps you need to take in order to make sure your will reflects your current wishes after a divorce.

  1. Revoking Your Will: The first step in updating your estate plan after a divorce is to revoke your old will and make a new one.
  2. Updating Beneficiaries: Update your beneficiary designations for life insurance policies, retirement accounts, pay-on-death bank accounts and transfer-on-death brokerage accounts.
  3. New Powers of Attorney: If your current powers of attorney give your ex-spouse authority to act for you, revoke them and update your powers of attorney after your divorce is finalized.
