Most of us give little thought to what happens to our assets when we die. We assume our spouse, and children will automatically inherit our belongings and assets. While this is generally true, the process for transferring those assets can be complicated if you do not have a will in place.
Estate planning is also complicated by other factors. Those who have divorced and remarried, are living separately from a spouse, or those who own a partial interest in a business must always be certain their estate plan is up to date. Failure to do so means there could be disputes about your assets and belongings that could take months to resolve.
Estate planning is for everyone. Whether you are newly married, have just had a child, or you are considering retiring, if you do not already have an estate plan, it is time to consider one. Everyone has a different plan for their estate, and we will take the time to find out your goals for your assets and help you create an estate plan that meets those goals.
Whether you have a modest estate and need a simple will, or you have a more complex estate that may require a trust, we can help. We also provide help with preparing health care directives and powers of attorney to protect you in the event of a debilitating injury or disability. If you live in the Houston, TX area and you do not have a current estate plan, contact McClain Legal for help. We will help craft a customized estate plan to meet your needs.
