Texas Last Will and Testament – Property Division When You Don’t Have a Will

Property Distribution When You Don’t Have a Last Will and Testament in Texas

 

If you die without a Last Will and Testament in Texas the Court handling the probate will divide your assets in a very strict manner in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas.  Because of this your property will most likely be distributed to individuals you would not have included as beneficiaries had you had a Will prepared for you.  Such a distribution may blog-detalis-imgcause financial hardship and emotional upset to those individuals and close family members you would have originally wanted to benefit the most.  In essence, without a Last Will and Testament you might unintentionally give valuable property and assets to relatives and/or individuals who do not need it or who do not deserve it.

Regardless of where you live in Texas (i.e. Houston, Katy, Sugar Land, Harris County, Fort Bend County etc…) you need a Last Will and Testament, particularly if you have children or own real property (i.e. house and/or land).   By spending a small amount of money now on a Texas Last Will and Testament that spells out with specificity how you want your assets distributed you will avoid the substantial cost associated with the probate of an estate where no Will exists.
