Wills can take a variety of forms and can be used for a variety of purposes in Texas. In general, a Will
is used to make clear how a person wants their assets divided at the time of their death, who will be in charge of paying any debts and distributing assets (your Executor and/or your Trustee), and who
will be responsible for your minor children.
Traditionally, a Will has been the foundation of any estate plan. It is a highly customizable document and should reflect your goals and objectives for your assets and for your beneficiaries use of their inheritance from you.
Your Will should be drafted as part of your overall plan. Amaral Tellawi Law offers a reasonably priced Complete Estate Planning Portfolio designed to meet the needs of most people. In addition to your Will, you should consider important Healthcare documents as part of your personal planning. Those include the appointment of disability agents to make medical or financial decisions, the nomination of guardians and the making of decisions about life-sustaining efforts.
