Texas Wills & Living Wills
There are many ways to protect your assets and real and personal property in the event that you are no longer able to do so in the future. You can appoint an Administrator or Executor to manage your estate. With a simple Will, your wishes will be known to all. Other options are also available, such as a Living Will and Trusts.
- Wills – Wills provide direction for care of your assets, property, pets, and family members after your death. You can choose a guardian for minor children in your Will.
- Living Wills – Living Wills lay out your wishes for care when you are incapacitated and unable to manage your own affairs.
- Other Important Documents – Trusts allow you to set up funds to care for children, pets and others. Medical Directives allow you to name someone to make decisions for you about medical care when you are incapacitated.
