Make Sure Your Will is Up to Date Before a Disaster Happens


The recent tornadoes in north Texas and Oklahoma are a stark reminder that disasters can happen anytime to anyone. Dozens of people lost their lives and many are still missing. Our hearts go out to the families trying to put their lives back together in the wake of the tornadoes.

The fact is, none of us knows when our last day will come. Those who were taken by the tornadoes didn't know it would be their last day on Earth. Some of them planned ahead and had wills in place, so their families have one less thing to worry about. We like to think we will all live to a ripe old age, but that's not always the case. Do your family a favor and contact a Bryan-College Station, Texas estate planning attorney about creating a will.

By using an experienced attorney you can have confidence that your estate plan will stand up to a challenge after you're gone. Leaving an invalid will has the same effect as dying with no will. If you die with no will in Texas, your assets will be distributed based on Texas law.

Every person who has an opinion about what happens to his or her property after death should have a valid will. Even if you have a small estate today, take steps to make a will anyway. To by sure your loved ones receive the inheritance you want them to have when you die, contact an experienced Bryan-College Station, Texas estate planning attorney. Likewise, if you are wondering whether a particular will is valid, schedule a meeting so we can discuss the facts of your situation and recommend your next steps. Call us today at 979-703-7014 or fill out our online contact form.
