Trust Wills and Probate

Estate Planning Lawyer in Houston, Texas

Planning for your future is essential. No matter whether you have assets you want to protect or children who you want to provide for, it is always a good idea to meet with a knowledgeable estate planning lawyer. Wills, Trusts, and Probate are all part of estate planning. Under Texas law, the rules for probate are laid out in the Estates Code.

The Estates Code is convoluted and requires sophisticated knowledge of probate law. A will that was not properly executed can be contested. It is imperative to have a leading Houston Wills, and Trust Attorney prepare the appropriate documents for you. This will ensure that your assets are divided according to your wishes, and not by someone else.

The Difference Between Wills and Trusts

Although the terms will and trust are often used together, they are in fact, two separate things.
A will is a testamentary document that goes into effect once a person dies. A will is subject to probate. A trust, on the other hand, is not subject to probate. A trust goes into effect immediately upon creation. There are a number of different kinds of trusts. One of the most common is a living trust.
