It is very important to have a current will. I cannot emphasize this enough. Even though it is always important, it is not something that people enjoy thinking about. Over years of practicing law and helping thousands of people with their estate planning, trusts, wills, probate, and business planning, our attorneys have found that we have a more receptive audience when there is some type of urgent situation going on.
So, now that I have your attention, please consider this: if you do not make a choice on what happens to your property, someone is going to make it for you. If you don’t make your wishes known, in writing, you will leave your family struggling to guess what you “would have wanted.”
Everyone should have a current will but it is especially important for people with minor children, step-families, and small business owners. If you or someone you know has signs of dementia or another neurological disorder which may affect your memory in the future, but you are still competent, you should not wait to make a will.
The mere thought of figuring out what to do can be overwhelming. For that reason, we advise that you keep the documents simple during this time of crisis. There is time for more specific planning later, but first, get valid documents in place so that they will be available in case of emergency.
During this crisis, we are offering a wills “package” , which includes a simple will and powers of attorney at a discount. We will give an additional discount to first responders. If you live in the State of Texas, we can help you. We will draft the documents remotely, and provide you with options to get them notarized.
