Local Estate Planning Attorney Experienced in Will Preparation & Inheritance
A last will and testament is not just for the wealthy; it can save your family thousands of dollars in probate fees and ensure your wishes are followed. If your wishes are not in writing, it can be very difficult for your loved ones to transfer your assets and protect your desires. Proper planning can also minimize taxes. All of these are standard benefits to writing a well-thought-out will with the help of an experienced estate planning attorney. For help with your will in the DFW area, contact The Foust Firm, PC today for a legal consultation.
We Care About the Emotion & Complexity of Writing a Will
Our team understands that wills can be an emotional, somewhat awkward subject to talk about. After all, you have to die before it really becomes an issue, right? With this in mind, our firm is dedicated to encouraging our clients to consider that drafting a will is really an act of love towards your family and loved ones. It will make a difficult time for them a lot easier when they do not have to guess (or argue) about your wishes for the distribution of your belongings. Yes, you will be gone, but your family will be grateful you took the time to create your last will and testament.
Common Questions for an Estate Planning Attorney
Who should I appoint as the executor of my will?
Answer: The “Executor” named in your Will is the person who distributes your property to those people named in your Will. It should be someone you trust. It can be a beneficiary of the Will, which is often an adult child or relative of the testator.
I don’t have much property. Do I still need a will?
Answer: Absolutely yes. A Will is an important document to help identify your family. If you have titled property and you pass without a will, it is very expensive and time-consuming to conduct an “intestate probate” to determine your legal heirs and transfer any titles to your property. We can include a designation of guardians for your children, funeral directives and any gifts you may want to make to a charity. When the Will is probated, it also becomes a permanent historical document, outlining your ancestral lineage.
