Importance of Creating a Will in Texas

If you die without a will in Texas, the state will follow “intestacy” laws to distribute your property to your family. According to intestacy law, your assets will be distributed to your closest family members, starting with your spouse and children and continuing with further and further relatives through blood or marriage. If an individual does not have family to distribute your belongings to, the assets will be taken by the state.

Because it is sometimes not apparent when or where death may occur, planning ahead and preparing for the future is important. A will can assist with matters such as:

  • Determining which individuals or organizations you want to leave your property to
  • Naming a guardian for your underage children
  • Naming a person that will manage the assets you leave to your underage children
  • Naming an executor, or an individual to carry out the desires stated in your will
