Avoid Probate in Dallas, TX

After a death, all assets of that individual's estate become property of the government while the administers and the executors complete a process of paperwork and court appearances. This process is called probate, and is necessary to ensure a will's validity, pay all debts and taxes, and distribute the assets. However, this process often places unnecessary stress on the loved ones of the decedent and renders property vulnerable. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this property and protect your assets from the complicated probate process.

Ways to avoid probate include:

  • Drafting revocable living trusts
  • Creating pay-on-death accounts
  • Owning property through joint tenancy
  • Giving away property before death

Irrevocable Trust in Dallas, Texas

An irrevocable trust is an important tool that can be used to protect your hard-earned assets. When you create an irrevocable trust with an estate planning lawyer in Texas, you are essentially losing your rights and cutting your ties to the assets within the trust. The property within the trust is now being held for your beneficiaries. This allows you to protect your property and minimize or eliminate any taxes involved. When you cut your ties to the assets, creditors and lawsuits can no longer take away or tax assets that no longer belong to you.
